    I was reading Popular Mechanics earlier and saw a thing about the new iPod. They also mentioned a website where you can buy a leather case for it, that clips onto a belt or whatever.

    My newest desire is to figure out a way to connect the iPod to my current car radio. It is a Kenwood KDC-6011 and it is supposed to be able to have a second CD player or a CD changer connected. So I an trying to figure out if there is such a thing as a CD adaptor to RCA adapter that will allow me to use a ear phone to rca adaptor to connect up to it. That would be the ultimate CD changer. 1000 songs at my fingertips, that is a dream!

    agreed Moose.

    they release an adapter to hook the iPod up to your car stereo and I'll be on my way to get both. I'm pretty close to picking up an iPod anyway, but that would cinch it.

    I am thinking that if your car radio has a set of RCA adaptors for input on it you are good as gold. All you would need is the adaptor that goes from the earphones to the left/right male RCa and hook it up. Hit the source button and off you go! I think at least. The instruction manual for my radio says that you can hook up a cd changer or an additional cd player to the stereo. If that is the case, an additional player, there has to be a way for me to connect it and use the CD2 source mode on my radio. I know there has to be away!

    I am trying to find out if there is an FM modulator that has the ability to accept some form of a cable from the iPod headphone jack. That would solve it all if you could simply put that in line with your antena and just have to hookl up the iPod and tune to the correct station. It seems too simple an answer, therefor, the item can't exist. Darn.

    It would be great if I had a cassette player to use one of those, but I do not. I am going to try an FM modulator (www.radioshack.com catalog # 12-2051) an see how that works. It is wireless and supposedly (as told by the suggested I get it) works great, cd quality and all. I figure that as long as it works and I do not get any strange humm from the frequency that is put out by the hard drive spinning it will work for me.

    I will update you all by the end of the weekend if it goes well. I really don't want to replace the radio and will have get my hands on a firewire/lighter converter. I will check out the site that Jaha suggests.

    Hey Jesse here (my mac is down for a bit). www.powermax.com has a FM modulator for $18. Its wireless so all you have is the connection from the iPod to the modulator. It Transmits on a fm freq, tune in your car stereo and you've got music. I might get one just to get rid of the extra wiring with the cassete plug in.
