What do you think?

[I searched but all i get are ideas about making a bootable flash drive.]

If you got a pair of headphones that were usb headphones, what else? Move software from an mp3 player over to the flash drive? Or has puppy got something developed that would work?

I know for the most part the answer is a 'no.' But I just know if there is a way, a puppy person has figured it out, so I thought i'd ask.

Images here. Don't own one but there seem to be many variations.

Very Happy Hello,
Here is the big hurdle...
USB drives are powered thru the Universal Serial Bus...
Mp3 players are powered by a battery, sometimes recharged thru the USB..
So even if you solve the headphone dilemma...

For what it is worth, you can boot Puppy from a mp3 player...

NO

AKAIK, an MP3 player is a flash drive and a small "CPU" that interprets the mp3 files into analogue music out of the headphone jack.

A flash drive is missing that essential link in the chain that makes the data in analogue sound.

That is impossible. Smile
A flash drive is just data storage whereas mp3 player has also decoder, DAC, amplifier, some microcontroller with service program and many other stuffs.

I guess as a similar extension to this idea, maybe possible, but still unlikely challenge, would be to use a flash drive as extra storage for an mp3 player.

For some mp3 players that might be possible, for many of the "dumber" ones, I doubt it.

I think the easiest way is to find some sort of mp3 player with a usb input that way you can plug your usb in and play songs from there.

the usb headphones are good but how will the usb be powered, i guess you could have a small power supply attached to the headphones, but then its making the software on the usb.

Mp3 players are cheap these days and you can get a 8gb for less then £10 so best to stick with that imo Wink

Flash drive + no extra parts + no efforts = MP3 Player is impossible.
Flash drive + extra parts + efforts = MP3 player is possible.

Read here for much efforts how to do it:

http://forums.techguy.org/do-yourself-projects/742753-flash-drive-into-mp3-player.html
http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=1006052652869

Buy this with no efforts at all. It needs only an adapter and a flash drive to work:
Building block MP3 player
Adapter from here:

The question is is it worth the efforts and the money to do it?
