Default Music on my boat

being old and out of touch as far the new storage units for music, what do I need?

I have a bunch of cd's and music on my computer. I would like to have something that I can take and play with on my boat and motorhome. What is the difference between MP3 and IPODS? What do I need?

I'm not up on the latest stuff so just drag CD's - I have a standard JVC w/remote from BB for 100 - I use the marine speakers from Boss from the internet only by the way - very inexpensive but really good, never had one go out and was skepical myself but they will rock. I have 4 in my boat now 2 Boss and 2 6x9 from West at twice the cost the Boss sound better, just couldn't wait for shipping - so for under 200 you have a nice system that I would believe will also hook up an MP3 player

An ipod is a "brand" of mp3 player which depending on model can also play video. You can buy a standard cheapo player and as long as you have the right stereo with connections will work!! I have two ipods, my kids each have one... I enjoy them as I have over 90gb of music on my computers. Not very many mp3 players will store so much data.

An Ipod is a portable music player made by apple that plays MP3's. Some stereo's say that they can play MP3's, what they mean by this is you can burn your MP3's onto a CD and play them directly on the boat's CD player with out having to convert the file to wav format. The advantage of this is an MP3 file is much smaller and you can fit maybe a 100 songs onto a single CD. Other stereo's say that they are Ipod ready, this means that if you have an Ipod, or pretty much any brand of an MP3 player, you can directly hook it up to the radio to hear your music.
