    i wanted to expand on this a little-- it is like having cd's and cassettes-- sure, they both have audio tracks, and both allow you to carry around your favorite artist, but they are 2 completely different types of media-- the cassette tape uses magnetic tape, and magnetic readers to pickup what is on the tape, and the cd uses tiny holes, and a laser see what is on the cd.

    there is no way to get a cd player to read a tape, or vice versa. it is similar to this for ipod/usb drives-- unless your car specifically has a usb port, that allows for it to read usb drives, it will not know what to do with it (like jamming a tape in a cd player), and the cost of tech to actually get a usb drive to be simulated as a ipod would probably come close to the overall cost of the entire car by the time you finished...

    so, it is much easier to get a car computer, or a 200-some-dollar aftermarket head unit that can read usb drives, and ipods...
