USB Audio Reader with audio output
I have MANY older flash drives that I'd like to use for music. With car stereos and the such coming with USB ports, it makes sense that I'm not the only one seeing that old 8 gig flash drive as a music holder.
I'm looking for a device - probably about the size of a 4-pack of AA batteries - which would have a USB jack on one side and a 1/8" audio jack on the other. It should be internally (battery) powered, but you could also have a power input jack on it as well. Basically, the box would have no outward cables (they'd all be separate).
It would have to have a forward and a back control, as well as a play/pause. The output volume could be line level only.
I've seen these readers built into FM transmitters for the car (bought several years back... photo attached), but I don't want to use it as a transmitted signal - I'd rather have it so that I could plug it into my car stereo's aux input or I could use it to play music through a PA system.
Basically, I'm looking for a portable MP3 player with a USB jack for external storage... does anyone know of a unit that accomplishes this?
