 Are there car MP3 players that recognize folders?

I am looking to get a car mp3 player, but i was wondering how it works when you access the CD. if I have 300 songs from 10 different bands, each band with their own folder, will the players recognize the folders? Or if I want to skip from the first band to the 10th band, am I going to have to press the skip forward button a couple hundred times before I get there? If there are any, which models can read folders? I was considering one of the new Alpine CD/MP3 players.. Alpine 7897 or 7995. Any info would be greatly appreciated. -Adam Frappy03@aol.com

 I think I know one.....

I think the Jensen 3510 MP3/CD player can recognize folders, I'm not positive though, its not too expensive either.

All the newer ones do, to the best of my knowlege. I have an older Kenwood KDC-MP8017, and it recognizes folders, displays folder and CD names, and scrolls ID3 tag info. I also just found out it will run a Kenwood Sirius tuner thru the changer port, even though Kenwood lists it as non-Sirius compatable.

 Alpine

I recently saw an Alipine CDA 7897 and a 7998. Both of them have folder buttons on them, and they look pretty easy to use.. I'm planning on getting one of these models, but i'm not really sure why there is a $100 difference in price between the two. From what i can see, the 7998 has a motorized tilt screen and no internal amp. The 7897 does not have a tilt face, but it does have an internal 20w RMS amp and a slightly different display. Are there any other differences that I should know about? I just don't see why the higher model should be so much more.

It is beacause it has no internal amp and a better display with more options on the display. I also believe the higher one has more tuning abilitys and blackout mode 2 sweet ass options. If you are going to amp everything in your car get the 7998. That no internal amp allows more juice to flow to the amps.

This is probably a stupid question, but Why would be be better to have no internal amp? Wouldn't it just be extra power? Also, what is Blackout mode?

Blackout mode is where the display is actually shut off to save power consumption to deliver more power to your amps. Having no internal amp is a huge advantage if you have everything on an amp. Because now your cd player no longer produces 4 channels of wattage that go nowhere thus again delivering more power to your amps.
