mp3 + Hard drive ?!!
Hello, I am new to the forums, and I would just like to introduce myself. . Ok so I have a question, Is it possible to buy say, a 1 gb or 5 gb or something mp3 player, and if it has a USB port, connect it to a seperate external like 80 gb harddrive, so that, it would be a lot bulkier, but your have 81 gb worth of space for music, etc? What I'm saying is like, attatching the external seperate harddrive, like a 40gb, or 80 gb, (laptop possibly), the kind you can get for under a $100, and buy an mp3 player for under a $100, and connect the two through a USB cable (both presumably have USB ports), and not you have a massive storage mp3, which you bought for less than a 20 gb iPod. It may be bulkier, but nothing a little duck tape couldn't fix . Some of the laptop external hard drives are pretty slim too, only weighing like 4 ounces for 60 gb, and can fit in your hand (the viao 60 gb external hard drive for example). Also, most external hard drives are usb 2.0 1.1, so would the mp3 player have to be the same to connect? So is this possible? If so, have you heard of anyone that has done this, or any good way to do this? Thank you very much!
