Computer CD drive into a walkman Answered
hey everyone this is my first post(i never realized there was a forum untill now). Heres the idea: ive got a bag of computer parts and among them is an old cd drive. its got a volume control and a headphone jack built into it. my idea is to put a rechargeable battery on it, turning it into the nerdiest walkman in history. my knowledge of computers is only slightly above basic so i was wondering how i can get it to play and switch to different songs. can i do this by making connections on the ribbon cable port, or is this whole project totally absurd?
