MP3 adapter for a car minidisc??

Hi all

I already have a car MP3 cassette adaptor from my previous car, which works well, similar to this EBAY Listing

I recently bought a new car with minidisc player included. I don't have any minidiscs to use with it, however, I do want to connect it to my MP3 player. Is this possible? If so, where can I buy such an adapter please?

Many thanks
Scott

You could try one of these if you have an FM radio:

Note that the use of FM transmitters in the UK contravenes the Wireless Telegraphy Act 1949, so only use it if you're comfortable with the possible consequences. I note from 'The Reg' that there appears to be a move to legalise them:

They're excellent devices for using abroad, of course you should never use it in this country..........

Dozy isn't it, legal to sell, but illegal to use:

Fortunately they're so small that that if stopped you could always try swallowing it. A friend of mine has a iTrip. Experimentation proves that it has a range of about 30 metres. The Belkin job barely registers a signal outside the car!
