September 12, 2007 The Micoder is a simple device that converts audio CDs into MP3 format and transfers the music-files directly to an MP3 player or USB mass storage device. You can have a CD fully transferred to an MP3 player within 5-7 minutes, without the use of a computer, and without any technical knowledge whatsoever.

Usage is simple: connect a player to the Micoder’s USB port, insert an audio CD, press “ENTER” and within minutes, the tunes are ripped and sent to the MP3 player.

The device from China based Support Plus caught our attention at the Berlin IFA Consumer electronics show – seems like a handy tool for mums ‘n’ dads who aren’t too confident with the PC as a means of ripping and loading tunes, but love their cute MP3 players.

We don’t have any information about release dates, pricing or availability, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled.
