Rip your CDs onto a flash drive in Mp3 format in the highest resolution. Use the free software "fre:ac" that MONEYJOHN recommended on the first page of this thread. If you can not get that to work then spend some money to download the software called "Express Rip". Do not purchase the additional teck support. You will not need it. The express rip software is from Australia so the price varies according to the day to day currency exchange rate, and you credit card company will probably add a small additional fee for over-seas transaction. But the software is very good. You want to use a flash-drive that is rated for temperature extremes. The Samsung BAR plus in the Champagne Silver, flash drive is rated for temperatures below the coldest and above the hottest temperature it will ever see in a vehicle. You can get them from Amazon. You really do NOT need the most expensive largest ones. My collection of over 200 CDs and the additional ones I borrowed from the local libraries resulted in 1230 songs and that uses up less than 6 Gigs of storage space on a flash drive and I used the highest resolution when I ripped them into Mp3. At the rate the smallest one, 32 Gig will hold more than 6000 songs. If you get a flash-drive holder that Amazon recommends. The flash drive is small enough to loose and the holder protects it when in transit and prevents you form loosing it.
