    I have a Volkswagen Golf GTI -99

          car voltage is all around 13.8v while running... you'll need a power regulator, u cang et them quite cheap with plugs on designed for small electronic appliances like usb hubs.

            Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
            How about the Wiki?

                7805 voltage regulator will convert 12v to 5v at the apparent expense of some heat

                  The Opus POL DC-DC seems to bee a good option for the 5v.

                  The problem is where to get hold of it in Sweden. I will search here in Sweden.

                  I saw there are 2 models of it one with "mounting bracket/heat sink" and one without. Anyone who has one of theise, and how does it looks?

                    so if i buy one of these, i can connect my external audigy 2 nx soundcard because it takes in 5v input ? I am very reluctant to splice the wires on the power pack of my audigy 2 nx and hook it up to one of these. Theres got to be a easier way

                    I'll be using a M1, is there any way to get 5v power from it when the comp is on ?

                        cheaper? the 7805 will cost you like 50 cents (except at radio shack where you'll find the usual 300% to 400% inflation)

                        easier? well I guess if you are afraid of soldering, then I can see why you'd avoid it. but the entire circuit consists of the regulator, and a couple capacitors... could be build in 15 minutes... and with a multimeter you can easily verify that it's outputting 5v before you go hooking it up to the audigy, therefore there isn't a lot of risk...
                        But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:

                          I remember reading about a mod with a lilliput 12V adapter and it being modded to out put only 5V, Maybe I'm dreaming but I can't seem to find it right now.
