Default best way to play mp3s over car sterio?

What is the best way, I had some off brand FM transmitter I got off ebay a month ago or so, and it just went on me, so whats the best way, should I get a new transmitter, or go with something else? I have a psp for music btw.

If your stereo supports it you can burn an MP3 disc

tapes?? one of those adapters that you plug into the headphone jack of your ipods will do the trick, and have great sound quality.

Yeah. Tape+Headphone Jack multiplied by iPod/CD Player = Win.

yeah that's a good option. Or then just burn them on an audio cd. Won't be mp3 anymore so you will probably be able to get around 15-20 songs / cd.

right i know this is a lil more than you wanted to spend but look at this.

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/125733

again this is in the uk but im just pointing out that its only £40 and that is extremely cheap look around for something like that in the us i know the mp3 player is only 512Mb but im sure most car journeys will not last longer than.

song size 3 Mb each
total size 512Mb
songs 3 mins each

512 / 3 = 170 songs

170 X 3 = 510 mins

510 / 60 = 8.5 hours

lol now i know thats alot of info but basicly do you regulary go on journeys over 8.5 hours ?

n e ways look out for a cheap 1 in the us

Or if you're not in the market of getting a new cd player that plays MP3s and what not, you could always try this if you have an iPod or Zune, or whatever...it's what I use. Works very well.

http://cgi.ebay.com/iPod-Nano-Video-...QQcmdZViewItem

Don't worry that's it's call a "nano" or whatever...that's just the name they use for "flirting" if you will. It works with nearly any kind of mp3 player. If your mp3 player uses usb, it has a usb connection and comes with the usb cord. I love it!

ahhh thats coz i down most of mine to 96Kbps and through headphones you cant really tell the difference.

but still even if its say 6 hours again most journeys i go on only last 20 mins, anyways it was just a thought.

i mean my sis is buying that stereo thats why i thought id mention it,

seemed like a good idea at the time

Well, I think I am going to go out and buy a 50 pack of cds, $10 or so, and burn them. The only time I will be using them will be the car, and thats easy enough, unless I can find a car cd player, with mp3 player capabilities for cheap, like $30 cheap, and thats not happening, so... CDs are the way to go, I just hate that cds can only use like 120MBs, cause of the 70 minutes thingy.
