Default Factory CD changer with aftermarket deck

I have a 96 Ranger STX with a factory cd changer and I was wondering if there is a way to get the changer to work with my after market Pioneer deck?

The only way a factory cd changer will connect to any aftermarket deck, would be either with an fm modulator, or an adapter (if they even make one). You could check with your local audio shop about either one of those two things. But it will not plug directly into it, and if by some strange chance you got it to plug directly into it, it won't work.

Im not aware of any adapters out there to go to with factory changers. A great way to go though is with a head unit that has USB, then you can put your music on a thumb drive and its way better that carrying CDs, changing them and so on. I have the music on my PC arrange in folders by album and I put many albums on a thumb drive and it was like having a 20 disc changer and the player gave me album, artist, and song titles

I have an iPod and I can play it through the radio itself, but I not to good at keeping it update. I only seem to do that about once every like 8 months so I have cds that aren't on my ipod so I still want to play them. I figure I have the changer so I might as well as use it.
