Is there an emulator module to connect external CD players to '22 Honda head units?

Recommended Posts

I just bought an external DVD drive, an LG SP80NB80, to play music CDs via a USB port in my 2022 Honda Insight head unit (which has two USB ports but lacks both a CD player and a 3.5 mm auxiliary port).
I bought it because the LG SP80NB80 is known to play CDs on a 2017 Honda CRV, but although my head unit will recognize the drive and the CD's music files (not by name, just by a generic label) when plugged into either of the USB ports, it won't play the music files on 4 different CDs.
So, can anyone direct me to a USB emulator module that will accept the DVD drive's USB cable on one end and, with a second USB cable connected to the other end, send a converted/readable signal to the Honda head unit?
(P. S. I'm aware of the alternatives and their advantages [e. g., copying CDs to flash drives, etc.], but for now, I'd like to play actual CDs with an external CD player until I get used to this 21st Century.  😉
