Default MACH MP3 stereo, worth keeping?

The stereo is the factory MachMP3 and works great other then i got excited when i saw it and thought i could use my MP3 player on it....doesnt seem i can or i dont know how to? Seems i need a disc? To me it may be easier just to get a new stereo that will allow the mp3 to be hooked into it? Talk me into or out of it.

Wayne, Did you wind up keeping the stock radio or putting in a new one. I am thinking of replacing mine.
