I have several WD external HDs, which are great but all require AC adaptor.
I'm now looking to get a car stereo which can handle a USB harddrive for mp3 playback (I've over 100GB's worth, and rising !)
This means I'd have my entire music collection available to play in the car, without faffing around with CDs, dvds etc.
What 's the current situation with these drives - would there be ones suitable for my task ?

*Dont know if this will work but its an interesting idea to think about*
I would suggest checking out the WesternDigital Passport External drives. Depending on the power output of the USB port on your car stereo head unit the drive might not need to be plugged into a power source at all.
