mega, I can just put the CD full of mp3's in the player and it plays
It obviously does not read "data" files so you cannot put 6 hours of mp3's on one CD but it will read mp3s. If you burn you CD in standard form (ie with nero or windows media junkbox) the stereo should read them...mine does at least.
I am sure you are wanting the stereo to read a data CD of mp3's which I don't think Volvo is planning support although the #1 CD spot on the 6 disc changer is designed to read some data because if you have the Navigation package that is the CD slot that you have to put the updated map CD ROM in.
How can volvo not offer the ipod adapter for the S40? what are they thinking??? Will they be changing this soon. I would like to buy an S40 but I think it is ridiculous that they don't have the ipod adapter or at least some sort of mp3 device input jack. It makes no sense to me. Who uses CD's anymore. Might as well have an 8-track or record player in the car.
