(I wasn't sure where this should go, but since I think of MP3 players as computer accessories, here it is.)

So, I don't knows if what I'm looking for even exists, but here goes.

I just got a new car and I have an auxiliary jack that I could use for an MP3 player. I'd like to get one and listen to podcasts and whatnot in my car with it. I don't need something with a lot of memory since I plan to cycle through files pretty quickly. So, I thought there might exist an MP3 player with no internal memory of its own that plays files off of a regular USB flash drive, since I already have a few of them.

I've been looking around some various websites but I haven't stumbled across anything like this. Has anybody heard of a product like this?

I have an RCA Lyra that uses SD cards (the ones for cameras, palm pilots, etc) for its memory so I can just pop in a new card.

I don't know that you are going to find a player with a USB port on it that you can plug a USB stick into. I could be wrong though.

The closest I could find was this...our friends daughter has one.

Creative Labs Zen Nano (froogle.google.com)

It basically IS a flash drive. It pulls out of it's "case" and plugs right into the USB port. Windows XP recognizes it, and it plays MP3/WMA files.

There are some of these - back when I was fooling around with flash models, I thought about getting a SANdisk player.

http://mozillaquest.com/Hardware04/SanDisk_Digital-Audio-Player01_Story01.html

And I liked it a lot, but I got tired of updating it so much.

here's one like it

The key distinction here that I either missed or you guys are missing is that he wants to plug in his USB sticks (already purchased) into this new mp3 player in order to use them as storage. I don't think he wants one that acts as a USB stick.

ah. I did miss that. I saw one of those along the way back when I was looking at flash MP3s - but was told, no, don't get it because the drive keeps slipping out of the player.

so I got the Sandisk. Now I have the Zen (which is a great MP3 HD player)

Thanks for all the replies, folks. I decided to just go with one of the small USB stick style players.

Hey, I already did an "Excel help needed" thread back in the olden days... I think. It popped up in auto-complete. I've made up a spreadsheet for each team in the W League 2.
