    USB Hardrive

    I went to the story looking for a new radio for a car I just bought and i noticed that some radios had a SD Memory card Slot and a USB slot, I have a portable MP3 Player with a USB as a connection and to my surprize it worked. I was wondering if anybody had tried hooking up a hardrive through the same USB connection. That way all i would have to install is a hardrive mount and a power connection.

    Could Anybody give me some advice. Or has anybody tride this out?

    all the mp3 player is, is basically a small hard disk, so yes, plug a usb HDD in (with NO O.S.), just format it and upload your mp3's, and voila!

    actually those HU are only to support fat16 drives. If your mp3 player was greater than 2gigs then it can support fat32
