I just creamed my hard drive and cd-rom on my carputer in an unfortunate short stop and pothole incident. The hard drive has become so damaged that it is not even being detected and the cd/dvd-rom is not reading discs properly. The mobo ps and everything else works fine. I enjoyed my car pc for almost exactly 2-3 weeks. ;p. Problem is I drive a Hyundai Tiburon and drive thru the streets of all 5 boros of new york. Anyone that lives or visits here knows a carputer is playing in dangerous waters with all of the *****ed up streets and potholes. This winter inparticular has done quite a toll on the roads here. I can only assume many others have experienced problems like these. What are people doing for mounting of hard drives etc? This single incident alone has me wanting to just sell off everything and drop the carpc project alltogether. I may have to wait out for solid state media storage. The PC didnt make it through 3 weeks and those 3 were pretty rough for the hard drive and cd-rom obviously.
No announcement yet.
Need some advice? CAR PC Short Life
