Hi,

in a discussion with an elderly friend he expressed a 'need' for a gadget he could use on vacation to rip a music CD to a Compact Flash or some other memory card without having to use a PC. I exclaimed "in China, they build *everything*!", but a Google search later didn't turn up anything...

Is there such a thing out there?

All I found was this, from more than 3 years ago. The links provided in the article are dead, but I did find this page on a company's site, of a different name. Just scroll down till you get to Invion Micoder. Seems the product is still "coming soon".

Yeah, looks like the company went under...

The Philips AZ 1880 player is not as small, but could actually be bought, and can rip CDs to USB sticks.

Wouldn't that be a possibility, using some CF or SD card in a USB adaptor?

Then there's the quite expensive Kenwood CLX-70 which seems to support direct ripping to SD cards and USB.

Also a bit more expensive (and less portable) than the Philips is the Kenwood M-505 USB:

I have the TEAC MC-D610MP, (bookshelf stereo system - not available anymore), which could rip to MP3 on a USB Flash drive or SD/MMC card.

One for sale in the ACT, (Australian Capital Territory), for $5 atm.

Thanks guys!

Could anyone (who knows more about this kind of adaptors than I do) please comment my assessment?

It depends, I have an adapter, (for Sony Memory Stick), where a driver needs to be loaded - which is no good in your case.

However, some don't require a driver, IIRC, one of the earlier Lexar Jumpdrive series took SD cards and appeared as a normal flash drive - this is the kind you need.

If you can find a decent computer store that will let you try, (or one with knowledgable staff), it would help.
