You have to be careful about the specs though, there's loads of DVD players that will play MP3s, but only from CDs. What I really want for my car though, is a hard disc MP3 player, so I can have my whole collection in there. The trouble is, the marketing men have decided the only solution for that is to tape an iPod to the dash. Whatever happened to Dension? Cheers, Colin.
