I have several flash drives I use to play music in my car. Most are 8gb. I would like to be able to play those same flash drives through a portable player, the way you use an ipod. Is there a device that will do this?

I have been looking. There are mp3 players with a usb connection but they don't come out and say they can be used this way.

Thanks!

Portable players are designed to be small, the USB connect is relative large. Even 15 years ago portable players used flat storage card, compact flash, SD, xd, etc.

An alternative would be switch over to micro SD and use a USB Micro SD adapter for your car. There are many micro SD players.

You might want to ask in the phone forum if there are any android phones that'd do what you want.
