    DVD drive with FM radio?

    Check THIS out. I wonder how good the FM reception is? Cool replacement for a head unit.

    I don't think you need a pci slot, it just mounts in any empty slot in the case but it doesn't have to be mounted there.
    It's kind of cool. Everyone is looking for a head unit that has an input for a soundcard, this is just the opposite, it can be used for a head unit that fees the computer and the the conputer goes to an amp. I guess the big question is, will it work with a USB to IDE converter?

    Hmm? What about a front end made to be compatible?!? then, that'd be worth wild to get.

    It doesn't require a PCI slot. There's a circuit board that's mounted to a backplate for easy mounting. The backplate can be removed and it could be mounted anywhere.

    And this isn't new. Someone's posted this same unit in these forums previously.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
