Default Re: External Hard Drive for my car?

Oh yeeeeeeeeeeea...that'd be sweet. Look how small that thing is, too. I could put the thing in a tissue box and toss it in the glove box! I might get 150 gig though.

Oh...and what's the deal with these external drives I see on ebay that say they're actually internal drives put in a case? I didn't even know that was possible. Would that be a better way to do it?

I really wouldnt worry about the drive dying, iv had mine for about 2 months and its in my car constantly. It seen a ton of wardriving adventures and is still holding up strong :-)

**EDIT: There internal harddrives put in cases, honestly id go with a external drive rather then an excloser.

Sweet. I will give this a try soon. The things come with drivers...I obviously can't install drivers on the head unit...will this be a problem? Obviously the pen drive doesn't require any drivers...wonder if the external hard drive would just plug and go...
