I'm just really curious about the media player. How would we go about looking into buying it for other mods? I'm also EXTREMELY curious to see a materials / price list. Any light that could be shed on the matter would be very much appreciated!
Keep up the good work airz!
EDIT: I just stumbled upon these two Chinese Media players.
A.) http://tinyurl.com/ykuj5p4 MP4 Game Player FM Radio
B.) http://tinyurl.com/tradestead MP4 Player with 2.8-inch Portable Slide Panel LCD
Would anybody know if either of these are the exact media player used?
i used this media player
it was the only one i could find that was the right width to fit in the cart. i dont have a model number or anything like that due to there just not being one. but if you search on google for "slide pmp" you should find it.
iv gotten a few people asking for a step by step guide but thats just not gonna happen..its actually fairly easy project and anyone that can build other portables could defiantly tackle this project, using common sense.
a part list is as simple as the media player, a cart, and a controller. i used some expoxy, wires from a ide cable, some tape, a few tac switches, i heated up a xakto knife to make the rough cuts (no dremal here), and sanded with sand paper till it was nice.
good luck to anyone that takes it on. iv actually already done some more work on the unit since posting, i replaced the controller board with rubber tac switches, they are just way more responsive, and i minimized the small gap on the right of the start button (it bothered me haha). i still haven't sold it, iv gotton so much resposinse i dont know where to even begin. so im thinking of throwing it up on ebay within the next few days. keep your eyes peeled to this thread, and ill send a pm to everyone thats been interested so far with a link to the auction.
peace out, airz.
