Hard Drives in cold weather?
Hay does aneone use harddrives in their mp3 players anywere were it gets below freezing?
I live in Cleveland Ohio and want to keep my mp3 of hard drive, instead of cdrom. The problem is harddrives at no ment to be ran at temperatures under freezing. Does anyone have any info on this? Are the hard drives prone to crashing? Is there any way to pre-heat them?
As to getting to hot It runs without a problem. I have 2 3.5" harddrives mounted with grommets in a full size desctop case (3 5" bays). Workes fine for hours with only the power supply fan and restricted airflow(bad posisioning in stereo system stand).
