My box is almost exactly the same specs, (except the processor is a 133).
Mine works fine, I am not 100% happy with using dos/mpxf as the software, but other than that it works well.
I just finished creating a MP3 box for my car, and here are the specs of the finished product
Intel 486DX4 100
32 MB RAM
Seagate 2.1 GB HDD
SoundBlaster AWE64 ISA Sound Card
AOpen ISA Network card
It's running Windows 95, but it boots directly to the command prompt and runs MPXPlay as the player software.
It's controlled via a numeric keypad, and is currently housed in a mid tower case until I build a new one.
Has anyone built a box with lower specs?
was using a 486 dx 66 overdrive
ran ok but boot time was way to long to dos
but it worked
then i got a p120 thats fine now
nice and fast 22 secs with 200 songs ibn the boot playlist
How do you 'overdrive' a 486/66? My brother has one that he'd love to use for mp3's. We thought it might be too slow!
1983 BMW 733i
Cyrix 166 32MB with MPXPLAY And no display. Player sits on the back seat with a keypad in front. Someday I'll mount this thing for good...
Gathering parts for carplayer v2.0!
it is a different motherboard and cpu
ive played mp3s on a 486 sx25 with 8 meg ram
a 486 dx2,66 will play mp3s JUST very just
lots of luck
my sugestion is get a p75-p133 there cheap and nasty but they work better
Barrett, are you using Winamp? If so, how do you avoid loading ID3 data?
No, I'm not using winamp
I'm using MPXPlay
It's for dos, and I have it set to only load ID3 data when it loads a song, not to load it for every song on startup
