These tape adapters with the wire that comes out of them is what I am talking about. The tape deck of course spins and the sounds work on Ipods and MP3 players.

Does these devices need the spinning spindle in them? I was going to damage the teeth so that the device would not spin thus would not screech. Does this device really need to spin? There is a white tape item that is connected to one of the spindles I've noticed.

My tape deck can spin all it wants but if I could damage the teeth on the adapter so it would not screech then that would be fine with me.

Whaddya think?
