Docking station for MP3 players

Are there docking stations available for any MP3 players besides IPod? I can't seem to find anything but stations compatible for it.

My son has a Sansa and downloads through Rapsody. Would like to upgrade, but wanted to know if there are any other options available other than the IPod.
Thanks

I don't understand people, why pay for a docking station... when all you need is a connector from you headphone input on the player to your stereo or boom-box which has an auxiliary input. The plug you can get at any store and it only cost about 3 - 10 dollars. The plug has the same end you use on your headphones and the other end is the same as the input connectors for your stereo unit. That end would have the 2 connectors (usually red and white) that you use when connecting units to your stereo's auxiliary input. Connect and listen to your music.

Or you can buy and fm transmitter for your player and listen to your music via a fm radio station. Cost about $20 or more... depending on the name brand.

There's just so many boom boxes, radios, docking stations, etc. that have ipod compatible docking ports. It would be nice to be able to use the ports with a "non-ipod" MP3 player like the Samsung that I have. I know you can use the aux port and a cable, but how hard would it be for Samsung to make an adapter that would allow their MP3 player to plug directly into the ipod port? Does anyone know if such a thing exists?

The only docking station i've fond is using your pc :(

Posted on Mar 21, 2008

A variation on the best answer is using the an earphone port adapter with the other end having the same kind of plugs as the TV end of your game console cable, just minus the video feed. Plug the earphone end into the mp3 player and the other end into the sound jacks where you would normally put the game console. Some TV's have one set in front and on in the back just like it so you can have your music and your game console hooked up at the same time. If you have a home theater sound system, you will get killer sound out of your mp3 player like no docking station or stereo can produce you'll even get the advantage of the sub-woofer built into this thing.

Another approach is to use a cable from the earphone output to the audio input for your PC if you have a good multi-media speaker set on your PC. Again, you get killer sound and the sub-woofer. Now you might wonder why you would do that as you probably have most of your tunes on the PC already. It's simple. Unless you organize all your music into multiple play lists on your computer, you'll probably have your current top favorites organized on the mp3player and that will allow you more control from the hand than you get from mousing through all the menus and the like on the PC. It will also take advantage of the fact that the mp3 player is doing all the decoding work, and all the computer has to do is shunt the analog sound back out through the speakers, taking a lot less processing power and allowing you to keep using even the slowest PC for more practical purposes, like gaming, surfing, blogging and ....

If your docking station has an AUX IN port, connect the iPod from the headphone on the iPod to the AUX IN port on the docking station using an audio cable.

There might be some issue with the docking ports. Try to connect a different iPod and see if its working, if its not working then there is some problem with the Dock connectors in the docking station.

I had this problem for the pat two days. Believe it or not I took my Ipod touch of the dock. Shut the power off to the Ipod to reset it. Also the power to the docking station. turned everything back on. Put the Ipod back into the docking station and heard the beep.. and hit play and it was working again. Not sure but shutting Ipod off does act like a reset.

There is some docking stations or players for the generic MP3 players but most don't even need them. A lot of them do have speakers attached but you can always get generic stations such as the one that IPOD offers or if you want to save some cash, just get some speakers that will attach to the player. There is a lot of products out there so shop around and even check out your major retailers such as Wal Mart

Ipod nano blinks


I bought an Ipod shuffle 2nd generation yesterday, it charged all night and orange light was still blinking. Tried listening to songs and sometimes it would play but most times wouldn't. Took it back for exchange and same problem. Then I realized the problem is not with the USB plug or computer reoconizing ipod but in the docking itself. I applied pressure on the top side of docked Ipod and bottom of docking station and the computer recognized the Ipod. Release pressure and lose connection. The problem is that the docking station and earbuds do not connect with ipod and the fixes provided by apple doesn't address or fix this problem.
