Non-ipod audio/video options for 2010 model

Folks,

I have an extensive collection of mp3 songs and mpg/avi videos. I am looking at options on playing external media and possibly transferring them over to the internal disk of 2010 E350.

The car comes with a cable for iPod and AUX input. However, I do not have an iPod/IPhone.

Some options that I found on the net:
1. Buy a new cable from the car dealer that can handle USB
2. Buy a PCMCIA card adapter + memory

For the money I would pay for any of these options, I might as well buy an iPod :-(.

I would appreciate your input on these or other options.

Regards,
Peter

A cheap 8 to 16 GB memory card (does not have to be one of those intended for digital SLR cameras) and a PCMCIA adapter would be my choice. More convenient to use and a lot less expensive than iPod.

Thank you all for your help.

Is there a specific PCMCIA adapter you recommend?

Regards,
Peter

I ended up buying a used iPod Nano on Craigslist.

Thank you all for your help.
