Cassette Adapter problems
I just tested my MP3 setup for the first time and I've hit a major problem.
My head unit (a Fiat standard Philips model) doesn't recognise the cassette adapter. As there's no tape tension in it (obviously- there's no tape !), the radio just carries on playing when I put the cassette in. Unless there’s any way of “fooling” my head unit into thinking that there’s enough tension in the cassette, I’m not sure what to do. The bloke in my local electronics shop told me that I might have this problem, as he had tried to connect a CD player to his Clarion head unit and the same thing happened to him. I think my options are :
1. Try to find a different cassette adapter, although I assume that they’re all pretty much the same. The one I bought was very noisy as well. I could hear the spindles going round, even with the radio on.
2. Buy a new head with an input on the front (which will obviously be expensive)
Any ideas ?
