    USB to Phono with Female-Female USB Adapter

    I'm trying to connect my mp3 player via its USB to my car's aux/2xphono input. I was interested in knowing if anyone's tried the USB to phono cable with a Female-Female USB adapter. Why would this not work?

    Thanks

    Because USB and audio are 2 completly different formats- USB is digital, audio is analog

    Thanks I needed that!

    I appreciated the prompt response soundman98, but I was hinting at knowing if there's a DIY kit or Aux box modification (it's an aux box from a company called PIE).

    well, quit hinting

    a quick search found that PIE makes aux inputs for factory decks, but that is about all that i can tell-- i am a little lost at what you are looking for.

    USB - Aux Converter

    Many current DVD players have USB inputs which play music/video from flash drives and have optical/phono plugs as outputs. I was hoping someone at mp3Car would have had DIY instruction to achieve this, minus the DVD player. Ebay has them as "Digital sound processors".

    i haven't seen anything like that-- i think that you can buy a unit like that and modify it to work for you than it would be to build your own.

    The "car's aux/2xphono input" is an audio input.
    You're MP3 player headphone jack is an audio output.
    The connector to use is a 3.5mm male to male stereo audio cable.

    i think he wants to play media off of a usb drive, or sd card, but his car only has a analog aux input..

    Some links

    It seems there are no USB soldering tinkerers here, but I've a attached product. I already have the USA-SPEC DF-Toy CD interface/aux input for a Toyota. Basically, has anyone here soldered a USB input to this unit or have links to someone that has worked on such soldering projects

    Thanks,
