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