    Transfering songs on to carputer

    Hi all just wondered how you all transferred your info from you main home PC to your carpc, do any of you use USB hard drives or is there a better way.

    Ethernet via a hacked linsys wireless repeating router (dd-wrt.com).

    then, ssh's secure copy (scp) or the nGhost+LinuxICE comes with a upload web interface.

    I made a small script that automatically ran when I inserted a thumb drive into my laptop. It works really well and is much faster than wireless. Really it's the fastest method I've found so far.

    Edit: Here's the link to the script.

    Ok so some of you guys have your carpc networked to your home pc's sounds interesting, would it be a good idea to use a USB HDD then you wouldnt have to transfer the files just take your drive into the house load files directly onto HDD and then replace back into the car ?

    My ideal solution is to get a 1000mbit NIC card, as I already have a 1000mbit capable router and home computer. Then just get one hell of a long ethernet cable, chuck it out the window, and into the car.

    I'll be able to transfer 15gb's in like 7 minutes Less if the hard drives could keep up lol

    A external USB hard drive seems a good idea though, would simplify things greatly.

    I use a flash drive for music seeing as I did such a good job of securing my wireless network that now even I can't get into so moving files that way isn't really going to happen......not sure about moving the larger files, probably just take them out to the car

    That is what I had (well 100 not 1000), and it worked well until my cat chewed through the cable... Wifi is just easier than running a cable from the living room through the kitchen into the garage for me.

    Put a USB port on the dash right under the monitor. Let's me copy files from a memory stick quickly and easily. Makes it insanely easy to copy 1 or 2 songs at a time. I used to wait until I had a CD's worth of MP3's saved up on the house computer and would burn a CD, hook up a CD drive to the CarPC, and wait 10 minutes while the files copied.

    But now? Plug the memory stick in, copy the files, move on with life.

    And in the event that I have 2 gig's worth of stuff to transfer at once (unlikely that I'd have all that at one time) I can put the memory stick in, hit copy, and let the files copy over 20 minutes as I drive to work or something. Couldn't do that with the CD ROM method.
