I would try using a microcontroller to play the files stored on the old computer hdd.
No. Actually, I'd just buy a MP3 player.

.  As lemonie points out, making an iPod-sized player from standard computer parts isn't going to happen. A microprocessor-based system (eg, Arduino) will probably fit your size requirements better. You might be able to use a system-on-a-chip uP.

No.  The hardware in a portable, usable MP3 player is so specialized that you can't make it out of scraps.  Best to save up and buy one in this case.

You can run an old computer as an mp3 player, but you can't really make it small and portable.
