Hey in perth.
set up my MP3 player in a old IBM aptiva p2 500,256mB ram,x2 CD drives,1G HDD,Remote,LCD.
Software: DOS 7.10 for Fat32 large drive and LFN support
: Mpxplay dos mp3 player
: DOS Ir infa red software,with a very simple reciever 38Khz $6 from dick smith
: DOS CD speed to reduce cd spindle speed
: DOS shutdown ATX
: LCD software comes with Mpxplay
A little bit of batch file programming and its away.
Only a few problems I'm having if anyone can help.
I have ova 3000 mp3's on a 10Gig HDD, DOS 7.10 sees it ok but Mpxplay takes for ever to load the entier drive or even make an MU3 playlist, it's having that much trouble loading the drive that it affects the remote while try to change/Listen to songs, I'm guessing the CPU is flat out try to process the 10Gig HDD.
tired all different settings in Mpxplay but to no avail
LCD is still only showing 8.3 characters instead of the full file name, think this is comming from Mpxplay, checked all the settings and LFN is running in Mpxplay and DOS
Any help would be great, haven't seen that many DOS based players on the site so far
