i was wondering is it possible to make a portable cd player that could play mp3 files from a cd?

Certainly. Someone was doing it as a thesis project during my final year in University. Quite easy actually. Just need an embedded OS with a small footprint and all you need is the mp3 player software. A good enough processor since it will be mp3 dedicated to do the decoding. Now the fact is, are you happy with moving parts causing skipping? Otherwise you need anti-shock measures and that requires expensive RAM. That's probably why they aren't making CD mp3 players - well, they are sort of; it's called notebook.

Yes, the shock protection could be a problem, but why not store the data on MDs?
I don't like the MP3-players at the moment, 'cause I don't want to get these tiny memory cards lost

The do in fact now have 8 second memory CD players that play MP3s off CDs. If you search for it hard enough (probably not that hard with all the MP3 portals), youll find it.
