    thanks pbharris but my Compaq PA-1 sucks ass. I have scoured the internet only to find that the Compaq PA-1 uses a proprietary filesystem and will only work with Rioport audio manager for Windows. I even brought a Sansdisk MMC card reader but that didn't work either. And to top it off I can't get RioPort Audio Manager working in wine >

    Maybe I will try VMware...

    Anyone try any of the portable cd players that can read MP3's off a burned cd-r or rw? Do you know if there is a filename limitation to them (all caps, no spaces, 8.3, etc.)?

    I'm thinkin of getting one of these as my only hope for tunes is to convert my 6v car to 12v, which would cost shitloads.
