Using the LCD from a portable DVD screen with an Xbox? Answered

Hello everyone, I have a portable DVD player that has a bad DVD drive. I would like to mod it so I can use it in my car as a small screen hooked to an Xbox. Can someone point me to where I can learn how to take that screen add a differen't video connection and power so I can use it with like a VGA port. The DVD player didn't have an aux. input so I have to mod the internal connection. Basically in a nut shell I just want to use the screen as a monitor in my car.


um, you probably can not mod

Why not? I see people modding these kinds of things all the time on this site for digital picture frames etc...

are you sure there's no aux in? Sometimes it's combined with the "aux out" connector, and there's a switch or config option to make it an input rather than an output... (I successfully connected a broken DVD player from the dumpster to a computer SVideo out. I was pretty happy.)
