    Thanks Ben! I'm eagerly awaiting your next release. I use MMC solely in my car and I love it. Sure it's got a couple bugs here n there, but it seriously kicks! Thanks for all your hard work!

    Thumbs up

    Hi,

    I'd just like to say what your doing here is fantastic, very impressive looking bit of software you've made. I've downloaded it after reading about it on another Forum, can't wait to try it out.

    ------------------------------------------

    I've been working on a proto-type car pc for a few years now and have tryed all sorts of different things. The main cause for my problems have been down to the hard disk, since they're very sensitive to movement (I've lost 2 hard disks in the past 2 years due to damage from movement). So I've purchased a 160GB external shock-proof USB hard disk which will store all music, photo's, DVD's etc and I can plug it in to my PC at home to upload new music.

    I am now in the process of replacing the internal 60GB 2.5" Hard Disk with a 8GB Bootable IDE 133X Flash Drive, Windows XP will be running on the Flash Drive.

    The only problem with flash drives is that although they can with-stand just about any amount of kinetic energy they're not good at handling read\write commands at the same time. So they work great just for running apps from, or installing apps on to, but don't work so well with page files (swap space).

    The page file should be turned off when using a Flash Drive, as a result your computer will need alot more RAM, if you don't have enough RAM you will notice a reduction in performance and may encounter more serious problems. I currently have 1Gb which is enough to be able to run most applications with out swap space and offer a performance increase, but isn't realy ample for running larger applications.

    I will be upgrading the memory to 4Gb DDR400 at a later point in time (when I have the money), which should be ample memory for any number of application and suitable for Windows Vista. I also plan to install a DSATX power supply and a MATX Motherboard so I am able to remove the inverter and build my own low-profile perspex case which will be made as small and well ventelated as possible making the system highly portable for any purpose.

    My CAR PC's specs are as follows:
    AMD X2 4800+ Dual Core
    Nvidia 7300GS PCI-E Graphics Card
    1GB (512Mb X2) Kingston DDR400
    NFORCE SKT939 Motherboard
    Creative 7.1 X-Fi Xtreme Music Sound Card
    8Gb Flash Drive
    160Gb External USB Shock-Proof Hard Disk
    DVD-RW
    PCI to PCMCIA Adapter
    PCMCIA GPRS\3G Internet Card
    Media Center Keyboard\Remote Control
    DVB-T PCI TV\Radio Card
    USB GPS Globsat

    Ok, I've got MMC installed and it's awesum I have to say. Only problems with it I have are a few of the extra features are disabled and getting error's wen i click pause with MP3's something about requires BASS 2.1 followed by a debug error. I'm geussing it's still being worked on at present?

    I think I made the right choice using a Flash Drive, they're lighting fast. Took me 20 seconds to format it in NTFS (writting over every single sector on the flash card), would of taken me atleast 20 minutes to do that on a 8Gb Hard Drive. Shame they don't support swap space, but I'm sure it'll have benifits in the long run.

    I've got a quick question, will MMC be offering any support for extra commands such as the ones found on the Media Center Keyboard and Remote. For chaning volume, pausing and skiping tracks?

    Keyboard shortcuts are already enabled. They were listed in the forum somewhere in the archives. Most are CTL+ key commands

    Thumbs up RadioShark 2 and Destinator Support

    Very interested in MMC as I to have a Mac Mini. Currently running BootCamp with XP2 as there are no decent GPS solutions.

    As I am from Australia, Destinator (FreeDrive Map Monkey, GaroNav) is the only real option as they produce the maps.

    Lastly, support for Radioshark 2 2would be appreciated as I have found it works every well and is a cost effective solution.

    Cheers
