    Good job. Very innovative :)

    Nice idea except i always get crappy mp3s that dont have a d-pad like that is there some way to wire it to make it work with a nes controller (a and b buttons also) .

    That really depends on the mp3 player. If yours is a crappy Chinese S1 mp3 player (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S1_MP3_player) then you can still use that. In fact, that's what most people use for this mod because they're so commonly available.

    I suggest you search around for NES Mp3 players, and definitely look at:

    https://www.instructables.com/id/NES-Controller-MP3-Player/

    which is a full Instructable rather than just a slideshow like mine. I didn't follow it, in fact I started mine long before it was written, then I got distracted and didn't complete it until much later.

    What a fortuitous purchase! Long time since I saw something that well priced a car boot sale.

    I hate you.

    IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN MIIINE!
    (mind you i do have 3 already )

    I've had several deals like that, like two xboxs and a PlayStation 2 for free, and a few similar deals.

    Were did you get the circuit board for the MP3 player and how much did it cost? What's Scragg?

    It was a cheap chinese MP3 player with no screen, like this. Scragg is a person.

    Hmmm...okay. Thanks!
