Idea I just wanted to mention this thing I bought the other day :

I got an Insignia (Best Buy brand) car stereo. It is one of a few I know of that offers a USB Flashdrive option for MP3 playback! If anyone is interested - it was $119. I have a 512MB Flash that I can store a good handful of songs on. It then just plugs into the faceplate, and plays just like a CD! No more burning!!! Yaaaaaaaay! It also has a CD player, radio, and auxillary port for using laptop, ipod or other device. I can't stop fiddling with it! Rolling Eyes Wish I could use a CF though, or SD or memory stick... Confused

Upsides : Ease, Speed, Capacity, Future Potential, Skipproof, Cool Factor...

Downsides : Crappy Brand, Easy to snap off flash while plugged in, Plays in alphabetical order rather then order on flash, sometimes deck gets confused if USB is pulled out suddenly and power has to be recycled to "reboot" whatever little brain is inside...
