    I have bought 2 different pcmcia cards just for testing. One with 4usb ports and the other with 2usb + 2 firewire. Unfortunately I just bought a usb dvd-burner. Very nice price but it seems to be very picky about power, it just spins up when it wants to.. It has usb cable for data and needs 2 usb power cables/ports on the other end to have enough power. I recently managed to have all other devices up and running at the same time but the dvd did not run. If I fiddle with some usb plug-out and replug I MIGHt get the dvd burner to run but the for example my bluetooth dongle stops working... or some other device..

    The beeping noice occurs also when not using the docking. I guess it has something to do with power load since it only occurs when I have many usb´s running

    Hey bimmerpc :-)

    Good job thus far.

    I've got an '02 325Ci and just recently installed my carpc.

    1) Did you ever find a solution for the HQCT to work with the factory antenna? If so -- details! I've just got my fuzzy two stations I can listen to while driving without an antenna hooked up.

    2) Did you find out if you had IBus or not?

    Enjoy

    Hey House98
    Thanks

    I did not try the hqct, I went for the Silab unit, which seems to work well until I tried to solve on a motorola extension adapter to fit my stock antenna. I guess I did something wrong so I have recieved my second unit which I wont risk to break until I get som help from some expertise. Anyway it works very well just placed on my desk and itīs cheap

    I dont know if I have ibus or canbus but thatīs a thing I also intend to let the one that helps me with the difficult parts of the installment to figure out
