Handheld + USB Hard Drive := Ultimate MP3 Player
Has anyone tried to hook-up a USB hard drive to a PDA? Ive found a few converters for Compact Flash to PCMCIA type II. The next step would be to hookup a PCMCIA USB card up to that and then a fat 40 gig USB HD up to that. Then I'll have all the MP3's I want in my car with 95% less space then my ugly PC.
Now, I know all the parts will fit together, but will they work? I found a site
which says a "Travel HD" will work - thats just a PCMCIA Hard drive thats like 500 bucks for a 12 gig - WAY TOO EXPENSIVE. Windows CE USB drivers will come into play and probably some other problems. Has anyone tried this with or without success?
This would be HUGE if it worked. Ive talked to some guys at Casio about their E125 and they said "WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO THIS", but then on a side note the guy said "let me know if it works I am really interested." Anyone want to cought up $500 bucks for the PDA to try this out? Ill buy the converter and the Hard drive if you get me a Casio E125. :-)
