Portable CD player questions - C320

My wife has a portable CD player with the cassette adapter she uses in her Exploder. I tried it in my car... It had no (real low) volume and of course the system would "beep" periodically because the cassette door was opened. Any ideas why this wouldn't /shouldn't work? Any way to get around the "beep" if it did?

Ford Exploder? The Pinto version of the Explorer! . . . I couldn't resist!

With the cassette adapter, the player should be seeing the audio signal through the playback head like a tape, so that's a bit odd. Rather than beat this thing to death, have you considered using an FM transmitter. I'm using one that came with my Apple IPod's car kit and it's great.
