Cheaply record MP3 from PC and play on clock radio-no batteries?

Posted by tumbleweed_lee (My Page) on

Is there an inexpensive way to copy MP3 files from a PC for play on a clock radio, say for later listening to radio program podcasts.

I'd rather not use an MP3 player that needs batteries or recharging to play it via a clock radio audio input. Are there any inexpensive MP3 players that use house current?

Are there any inexpensive clock radios that take memory cards? I've seen one that takes SD cards, but it has an $850.00 price tag!

How much of a hassle would it be to burn CDs to play on a CD clock radio?

Much floundering appreciation for any help you can give.

Most of the good MP3 players like the ipod or Vision M allow you to keep the unit plugged into either a cradle or a/c charger and still be used.

Have you considered a docking unit?
