Audio Jack to usb Adapter?
ok so i have no idea where to ask this so im going to start here. I got a new audio receiver for my car... Pioneer. It has a USB input for ipods.. well now im interested in plugging in an off brand mp3 player that only has the audio jack... sooo.. Is there a converter that would go audio jack to usb??

i would want something that would have male end audio jack to male end usb..

RE: Audio Jack to usb Adapter?
that should work but if you get one of those you will need male to male 3.5mm jacks

one to fit in your player and one to fit that adapter
they do those on ebay as well

so look for 3.5mm to 3.5mm lead


the problem is your trying something i have not seen before.
the adapter as long as its wired the correct way for the sub out, to input on your player you should be able to play what you like.

ypur link is for a mini sound card so thats not going to work in car music system

RE: Audio Jack to usb Adapter?
ok so that picture is labeled on amazon as HTC Cavalier Stereo Audio Converter (11pins to 3.5mm Stereo Head Jack Converter) (Straight Connector)
is that what i want in my case here?

are most audio devices (ipods other mp3 players etc) the 3.5 mm audio output?

my next problem is the female end usb port that goes to the stereo is a standard usb plug..
I cant tell what type of usb the above picture is?? I think its usb Mini B.. im not sure about that could you verify please.

i want to have a normal usb male end to usb (well call it mini b) female end to finish the adapters...

***I found this adapter**** assuming that its usb mini b it looks like this is all i will need. along with the 3.5mm male to male cable which i already have.

RE: Audio Jack to usb Adapter?
the amazon is not the correct one, you want standard usb to 3.5mm

yes most headphone jacks used on ipods, mp3 players , cdrom players are now 3.5mm

RE: Audio Jack to usb Adapter?
your not going to like me now ...
those won't work with a normal mp3 player. will work with a ipod but not a standard mp3 player as the use a three pin out on the 3.5mm jack which is left , right , common.

if you plug something like that in and it powers the headphone out of a normal player it will surge the preamp and blow the player up for you.
i think its best to take a quick walk to your local pc shop show them the player and tell them what you want to do.
but with that said most new car players with a usb plug like that will not play off a usb memory pen if you have one of those you can shove all your tracks on that and just plug it in.

I admit i am not a fan of ipods or mp3 as a whole, my hearing is so good that i can tell mp3 compression to normal play
about the only part of me that still works the way it should is my hearing.
i use mini disk in my cars , less bulky then a cdrom and just as good , and they don't jump or get stuck.

If you are in the US, You may want to make a trip to the nearest Radio Shack. I've found it to be the best place to find these kinda cables.

RE: Audio Jack to usb Adapter?
it should be possible.
as long as the preout of the mp3 player is wired to the amp in on the usb it should work.
