Video Player

I dont know exactly what to call this. but i want some kinda device that i could make that plays movies off a hard drive, i no that they kinda mmake these already but there really expensive and i figure i could build something cheaper. ive got about 20 extra computers varing from MACs to PCs and ranging in all diffrent years, so i though of like building like a "DVR" without a tuner card or something. and the basic reason for this is so that i can bring large amounts of movies and vids to friends houses without hauling around tons of CDs or my PS3. i also like the way the XBox Mini looks

Homemade player piano

So I got two pianos for free, one in great condidtion other than being out of tune and having a stiff action, and the other, a player, having a badly cracked soundboard and pinblock.  I salvaged the player pneumatics and bellows from the player and managed to mount it upon the other piano.  On each note bellows there were rods that pushed on levers to trip the action of the player piano.  On this one, these levers are about a foot and a half above the bottom of the action, because it is a console piano (shorter).  I've tried linking the bellows to the keys with hooks (which didn't work, it just pulled the keys off the center pivot point) and directly to the action, on the bridle strap hook.  I've tried different strings and two different gauges of wire, but they always seems to stretch, untie or to come unhooked whenever a note is triggered with the player, or with the keys.  If anyone has ideas on how to link the player mechanism to the piano action, any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Mp3 Player Mod?

I'm not really sure if this is the right forum to talk about this. I did go to Tech, but I saw a topic about MP3 player Skin Mods here, so I thought if I could ask for some help. I have an Mp3 Player, it's cute, runs on AAA batteries and an SD Card. Here is the problem though. It lacks any sort of Display.  Like it's one of those screen less ones you find.  I do have a spare screen lying over from a cellphone, so I was wondering if it could be possible to modify the inner workings of my MP3 Player so that I can finally see the name of the song I'm listening to. xP

Cd player turn table

So I want to try to turn a old sony cd diskman circa 1999 into a turn table for cds. My idea here is to have it play but I can stop the disk with my finger and hopefully get a skipping effect, the other idea is to be able to freely move the laser eye and have it still play while doing it. I already have it soldered up so that it can play without the case and have a 9 volt connected to it, but thats about it. Anyone have any idea on how this could be?

CD Player spinning device

I recently found an old AA powered Portable CD player. Upon dismantling it, I found 6 wires, since which I have tested and discovered their function. My question to you all is, would there be any danger to hooking up a larger battery to the two wires that spin the CD? I tried briefly using a 9 Volt, and the results were simply amazing. I have a hack or two that I could really use this for, and I wanted the opinions of people here to see if there was any danger to doing this.

Toshiba Dvd Player Problem

This lady gave me an older dvd player (Toshiba SD-2150) and she had it hooked up at her house, but the cd started skipping about half way in, and it would contiunously cut out for 10 seconds then resume playback and then cut out again and so on and so forth. As you'll see in the pictures, I've taken it apart down to the laser assembly (only took me 10 minutes incase you're wondering). The apparent problem to me is something is wrong with the gear assembly that moves the laser head. When I turn it by hand, it moves freely for about half a turn then it feels like the gear is catching on something, and if I turn it harder it keeps moving, it's not stripped, but it almost "feels" like theres a hump in the gear or something. I keep looking at the gear and nothing looks wrong with the teeth or anything! I was just going to put 3-in-1 oil on it and see how that helps and put it back together.  Does anyone have any suggestions? *********UPDATE********* I tried many things with various tools I had sitting here to try and straighten out the one tooth on the gear with no success. However with the little bit of melting/bending I did and the 3-in-1 oil, I got it to catch on the gear less easily. After re-installing the optical assembly and testing it on my stereo with the cover off, it appears not to skip anymore, DVD's too. However, I'm still not confident in how long this "repair" is going to work. The best solution I think is to replace the smallest gear on the motor, but I cannot find one close enough.

modify cd player to zoetrope

I am looking to modify a portable cd player into a zoetrope. this is fairly easy to do, but i have zero electronics knowledge and thought it would be good to ask if it is even possible.here is an old zoetropehttp://courses.ncssm.edu/gallery/collections/toys/html/exhibit10.htmi just looking for a one second loop of animation to occur.cds spin at about 500 rpm - which when you do the math is about 8x too fast. so how can i modify the cd player to slow down?i know that i could get a strobe light and try variations on the strobe, but since the rate of cd player spin alters from center to far edge (goes more slowly) the strobe light would quickly get out of sync.any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
