 Connecting PC Hard Disk Drive to stereo?

hi, my question is if this is possible, i mean use a PC HDD as music storage inside the car, and creating an interface to connect it to the stereo, or if there is a stereo that comes with this feature included, or i shall have to burn all my songs on CD(2000+, damn!), i have heard about the iPod, and guess that is the most simmilar stuff that i shall find...anyway, answers pleased

I dont think they have that yet but i know that clarion makes a head unit with a feature they call music cather. it has built into it 128mb of flash storage, you basically insert a disk of mp3 and it can record it to its built in memory. im guessing they will come out with this feature soon only problem i can see is transferring mp3's from yoru computer to the car, that might be done one disk at a time which could be a pain in the butt. you can however make your own, if you get an old laptop with say 3 gigs of hard drive memory , rip off the monitor and connect the monitor out put to one of those head units with a monitor you can make your own. i would then rip off the mouse pad and put it on the dash board , add windows 95 and it should work. if you make a custom computer case and use the mother board etc from the lap top that would work great too.

i've seen people actually put computers in their cars and output the sound from their sound card to the amps. otherwise, you can get an entire mp3 system with a built-in hard drive which you can transfer all ur music too, but its rather costly about 300 last time i checked, if ur still interested i can find the link.

Sure your idea is possible but what a headache! Check out all the new Alpine decks that control the Ipod. You get song, artist and playlist displayed plus complete control from headunit buttons and it even charges the battery in the Ipod. Kenwood offers the Music Keg which isn't portable like the Ipod but offers a cool voice feature that says the song/playlist as you scroll up and down so you can keep your eyes on the road. There's too many cool things available now (and affordable) to need a PC (for music) in your car. www.mysafeandsound.com
