Re: Tape Deck Problem.
Got some things that should help...What's happening is that your tape-player is encountering resistance with the new tape-adaptor (the holes are probably too small). The player meets resistance, thinks the tape is at the end, and then switches to play the other direction, and so on and so on... This is basically a defect of the design of your new adaptor. You can (1) drill the holes out a little larger, or (2) find another way to play your mp3's. Most cassette-adaptors don't sound very good any way...I don't think your old one is necessarily bad, I think they're ALL BAD. So I would take it back for a refund, and buy a wired FM transmitter. You can get one just about anywhere; I saw a Scoche one for about $20 yesterday on the internet. All you do is remove your stereo (easier than you think), remove the FM antenna, plug in the FM transmitter, and then plug the antenna back into it. You will also have to give it a power source as well, but that varies from one to another. Another option would be a wireless FM transmitter, but they don't usually sound as good as the wired version. Those you just plug in your mp3-player, stick it into your cig. lighter, and tune in a radio station. XOX
