Id get a mp3 player.
Dont they hold like 200+ tracks one one disc.

Man, I bought this thing like 3 or 4 years ago and never installed it because I didn't have a Mini Disc recorder. Now this was way before MP3 players were out otherwise I would have jumped on that. I'd like to get an MP3 player but I can't afford the one I want and I'd rather just wait and get the Alpine MP3 player rather than cut corners and get an Aiwa or something cheap. And since my Alpine CD player is starting to crap out on me I'm kinda pressed for time because I'd hate to be without music in my car.

The Mini Disc does have some cool features and I just need to find me a cheap recorder on eBay. Check out http://www.minidisc.org for more info. One of the cool things I like is that you can move tracks around instantly or delete them and add a new one in it's place. What MP3's burned onto a CD you couldn't do that and you'd have to burn a new CD. I know it's not that great of an advantage but it is an advantage If I get the portable unit I want I can bring it to work and rip music from my work computer.

Is that the one that uses memory sticks or flash memory? I've seen pictures of it before on the web but never personally.

I havve a mini disc player/recorder its jus tlike a disc man except it plays/records MD s .I Like because you can move and delete tracks on the spot but that suck,They sound crappy and staticy and when u record it record any noise off of your computer and u have to be careful with the volume adjustments while recording,There not bad but a Mp3 player is 100 x better .If u have subs and a good system in ur car ud be better off to just pick up a cheap shitty cd deck until u have the cash for a good one.Also I had the aiwa 217x er sumthin like that cd player in my stang until it got boosted and that was good because it had an input jack for MD ,tape,and mp3 and only cost like a 100 billsI now have the panosonic deck that has features out the ass like seguls and race cars .Hope that helped

OK, I'm just going by what I've read up on. If you have a MD Recorder and your doing Analog recording's it's possible to get the hissing and popping and other junk on the recording. Digital recordings won't have that kind of problems plus you get the advantages of being able to edit, move, delete tracks on the fly.

Oh OK, Fosgate used to have an MP3 player that used like Flash Memory or something.

ur right about the digtal recording you dont get the noise,if u have a mac u cant do the digital recordings...well at least mine(2000 blue Imac)and the only other thing i dont like about them is the down time u get because u have to record which is live time unlike mp3/cdr also it sum times takes a bit longer to [lay the song then a cd.But yes MD s are cool i defitley dont mind haveing it and i think they are a cool.I just like the ease of cd/mp3 just my .2cents well may b .3 cents
