Looking for a flash card MP3 player that does NOT have USB.

Is there a "shell" that you can stick in an MP3-filled flash card? All I find have USB.

Thanks!

What?

I think most MP3 players have a USB interface. It's become the standard. Some had parallel port interfaces in the past, some are firewire, but again, what are you asking?

Are you looking for something you can stick a flash card (i.e. secure digital, smart media, compact flash, etc) in?

My work doesn't allow USB-enabled devices. I'm looking for something that will play MP3's on a card but that you can't transfer to and from.

Not sure if they solved the problem, but they discuss your issue on the This Week in Tech podcast, episode 19:

no usb devices at all?

Yes no USB port at all, because we have access to people's credit card, account, checkcard numbers, etc... and they don't want those types of things around that can be connected to computers.

Sigh I'll have to do an MP3 CD player
