Hello, thank you for your question regarding the Sony CFDS05 Digital CD Radio Cassette Player - Silver

Having looked into your query, I can confirm that you can preset up to 20 fm and 10 am stations. The presets are stored in the unit sequentially, so you have to press the preset button a number of times to find the required station.

Yes you can play an Mp3 player. I don't know what the lead is called but it's just got male fittings on either end. Widely available. It works well, and the sound is superb.

Thank you for your question regarding the Sony CFDS05 Digital CD and Cassette Player - Silver.

I can advise that this product is compatible with portable MP3 players through a 3.5mm Aux cable. The stereo itself does not playback MP3 files on CD for example.

Bought one and took back to shop as although great sound for CDs etc it would not play the MP3 CDs that I have. Although the Argos catalogue and website both state that you can do this, the manual in the box states that the device does not have MP3 CD playback, which I found to be indeed the case on trying it out.

You *can* play an MP3 player through this radio, but you'll need a lead with a 3.5mm stereo plug at each end. One end in the earphone socket of your MP3; the other in 'audio in' of the radio.

Afraid Argos don't stock one, but a small electrical/ electronics store probably would.

i use the player for talking books and have no problems.the buttons are clear to see and very precise,it is easy to eject the tape and replace it or turn it over.the only thing you have to remember is to press the tape button when you first turn the player on,otherwise you wont hear the tape playing.

Thank you for your question.

After looking into this, unfortunately, you cannot record from tape to CD on the Sony CFDS05 Digital CD Radio Cassette Player but you can record from CD to tape. There is also no mic socket, but a standard 3.5mm headphone jack.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.
