I need two hard drives one for my Neo 35 car player that will be in
temperture ranges of -40 to +30 degrees celcius is there a drive that could
handle this? Would it be better to get a lower rpm drive or is the internal
heat produced close to the same ? I know I would have to warm up the vehicle
I'm just wondering if there is a drive more suited to this sort of
application.The second drive is a 100-120 gb drive for use with my modded
ps2.Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Asking here is fine IMO, others might know, but I think better
answers for hard disk drive specific technical questions are likely
found in the big/active storage group
(comp.sys.ibm.pc.hardware.storage). Good luck.

Pick a specific model # and find the spec sheet on the manufacturer's web site
for the full specs. Look for operating and non-operaating temps.

(how you get from non-op to the op range in a frozen car is an exercise
for the student.)

I was hoping for a less random more educated less time consuming approach
to making a choice.But thanks anyway.

Have you tried the storage group like I told you to do?

A Solid state drive would be ideal for this application. The only down
side is cost. Here's a link for you if you havethe cash
