  1. er, skip trying to make your own and just by an ipod.

    Same thing.
  2. i could.. but thats not what im going for... im going for an extra hard drive.. yes i could buy an mp3 player to transfer things.. but the thing is i have around 15 gigs of music.. yes i love music.. but i dont have 300 bucks laying around.. thats y im tring to do this.. i have the hard drive.. i just need to know how to wire it all up
  3. so i can use it as a backup or something..
  4. Uh, I have no idea what an MP3 hard drive is. Unless you mean just a standard hard drive that you store MP3s on... :twisted:
    Ok, just buy an external usb enclosure for your hard drive. They are cheap enough, or they even make a straight cable to to the same thing.

  5. I am guessing you mean you would like to remove the hard drive from an mp3 player and create a custom USB adapter for it.

    And the answer is no you cannot do that, it would take a team of engineers with a fair sized budget to pull of something like that.
  6. damn... o well.. i guess i can shell out 20 bucks..
