  • cheapest way of having a mp3 hard drive...

    Hi, i currently have a full sound system installed into my mk2golf gti with an alpine 9813R head unit, the system is very sound quality orientated.

    What would be the cheapest way to build a small carputer which only needs to play mp3's but with the best sound quality possible that will plug into my alpine head unit?

    Well technicly having a headunit that supports mp3 cds is the very chepest way to go, and you can have a couple hundred songs on 1 cd (probably around 200-300) but if you must have 543275072 songs then get a portible ipod or something, and extend your aux cables to where you can plug it in. Try not to get a computer just for mp3s, its probably not worth the money. Thats my 2 cents. Hope this helps.

        or heck, even an Ipod would work for what you want.

        back in the early days, there where no MP3 CD players, or hard drive based players, or anything even remotely resembling such devices. When I started no one other than geeks even knew what an MP3 was, and putting a computer in the car was the ONLY way to do it.

        For what you want, there is no need to build a car PC
