If you have an older model car that only has a cassette tape player and you would like to listen to your CD collection in your car, there is an easy way to turn your car's tape player into a CD player. There is a cassette adaptor that you can use, and it is shaped just like a cassette tape. The adaptor can be connected to your portable CD player or other device and then inserted into your cassette player so that your CDs can be played through your car audio system.
