mini 5gb hitachi hdd re-purpose/integrate into speaker system (LOTS OF HELP lol) Answered
well, where to begin? I have a 5gb hitachi microdrive sitting in my lap right now, and i was thinking of possible uses. ironically the idea I came up with is pretty much exactly what it came from. mp3player lol. I do have the rest of the mp3, which to my knowledge has no damage except a removed screen that was shattered many moons ago. So i shouldnt have to format it or anything.
~Can I adapt some other random lcd screen/ externally operate via laptop or phone.
~could it be integrated into an amplifier circuit so that i could hook speakers up direct
~if yes ^ would any of you fine specimen be willing to either guide, or send me links for a VERY simple beginner amplifier circuit. (i dont have an LM386 taken apart tons of stuff, cant find one. and i am very much so a beginner.)
~ are there ANYYY ideas for possible other uses/configurations. I have an arduino but ive yet to begin study (on the grounds that I believe I should start with basic components and circuits b4 code)
~i have questions for dayysss.. would anybody care to do a little tutoring here and there when I have questions? Im no dumby, but I am just beginning so patience may be required, along with a casual tongue.
~lastly, im poor. I mean like REALLY poor, donations? lmao no jk jk jk. however Im unable to purchase anything at all. I do on the other hand have a mismatched selection of harvested pcb's littered with the good stuff, so if given ample time and alternatives I may posses the required component.
