:O Awesome! Thanks for the update WSF!
Please, call me 'face.<br/><br/><sub>I always wanted to say something like that.</sub><br/>
Why 'Face, what an excellent name! I'll see you around -ibles then 'Face. :-)
&nbsp;I was going to say that too! It made it in the magazine too! The April I belive, the one with a blackhawk on the cover.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> I knew I saw it on instructables!<br />
It would be neat if you could write music onto a cassette with a usb flash drive
better still take apart a casette deck adaptor for a cd player/other devices and build a usb mp3 player into that, then just push play, and stick it in your cassette deck, hours of tunes on a single cassette, and no crap quality either!
yes and this is practical huh?
i had a USB floppy. but i forgot it in my pants pocket so it melted.
it would be better if you hid the sliding bit more...instead of having a huge hole in the side of the case
True, but it is functional..
true....but form shouldn't be sacrificed for function in a "non essential" item
you could cut a small slot in the top big enoh for a toothpic instead of on the side, and glue a toothpic to the back of the USB drive and have the toothpic come out the top so you could just push the toothpic.

Just b/c mine is better.. :D
Alright, I'll give you that... Mine is crappy lol I put it together in like 10 minutes.
Thats how long it took me...
I meant five. And I wasn't using proper tools, either.
ouch! lol
I did this last year but never bothered documenting it. I made mine so the USB was hidden until you turn one of the spindles, and then it popped out.
:P You should have posted it.
Sweet! That looks really cool. I have a whole bunch of old tapes I could do this with. 5 stars and favorited.
Thanks Joe! :D
