I have a '97 Ford Taurus, with a cassette player/radio. I bought one of those adapters that is basically a cassette tape with a wire that connects to an iPod or CD player headphone jack. It didn't work, it would just play for about 5 seconds and then try to switch over to side 2, and then say there was an error and spit the adapter back out at me. I told my roommate about this, and she said that her car only works with Sony adapters.
I don't know if I just got a defective adapter (it was the cheapest one there, made by Scocshe (sp?)) or if car stereos actually have brand loyalty. Does anyone have this type of car/radio, and do you use these adapters ever? What brands work?
