    Well the only use for that i can see is if someone wanted mp3's in thier car and didnt have a cd player, but they are better off getting a cheap deck and a cheap burner. Overall...a completely useless product.

    Different. I'll bet it's just got audio in / out and some simple interfacing for stop /play / record / etc.

    IMHO what would have been the best media solution was the minidisc, but they missed the boat. Sony did release a data drive minidisc as well.
    Imagine if this datadrive minidisc had played music, and allowed music to be copied to it. It was also around the same time as the zip drive, and look how that took off!
