Audio Tech Question
« on: March 23, 2007, 12:15:07 PM »

I'm relatively tech savvy, but I'm not even sure what to call what I am looking for. Is there a device that has a USB input (for my thumbdrive) that will play the mp3 files? Specfically I am looking for a way to listen to audiobooks I have downloaded onto my thumbdrive without going through the whole iTunes to IPod transfer process. Also, I don't want to burn cd's for this because it typically takes several and I don't usually want to keep them around after I'm done listening?

Anyone...Anyone?

Hmm, that's tricky.  I'm not familiar with any devices that would allow you to plugin your existing thumbdrive and play audio from there. (except a laptop)

There are several products that will replace your thumbdrive and are also audio players:

Unless you're talking about listening in your car, and there are some devices that will transmit the mp3s to an fm car radio:

Where will you do most of your listening?  at a desk, running/gym?  driving?

More ideas:

This device accepts a USB drive, but looks huge:

If you mainly want to listen at your desk, maybe just use your computer and run everything off the thumbdrive.

Thanks guys. I'm looking for something for in the car. The FM transmitter is interesting, but I tried one for my iPod and ended up taking it back because the recpetion stunk. I'll keep looking.

I don't think it was, but then again I can only remember something for about 10 minutes right before it's gone. Pretty funny either way, stroh.
