Wanted - Media player enclosure (case) for a hard drive

mrfun1981mrfun1981

My media player case has stopped working but my hard drive is working still, So im after a media player case if anyone has one that they are willing to sell so i hook it up to my TV & watch my films

Prefer a case for a IDE hard drive but will consider a case for a SATA as i can get my hands on a sata hard drive if needed.

    Yeah that should be ok, can you please confirm the spec of it -if yours has the record function on like the link you sent me. An that you have all the cables for it still & the case is not damaged at all.

    It dont matter about it being a SATA il just have to take one of my spare SATA drives out of the PC & use that

    :)

    No worries, never been used, only unscrewed as I was curious to see if it was SATA or IDE.

    All cables are unused, remote control is also knocking around . . . .

    Will round it all up and get back to you :)


    PS - states on the casing "digital video player / recorder"

    Plugged in (just to the AV sockets on my office TV - powered up and tried remote, seems to work fine, don't have a usb2 device to plug in or a HDD but its recognising that theres no HDD attached - remote works - erm, let me know if theres anything else you want me to try (ps - Fri/Sat/Sun is a heavy weekend ahead, so please bear with me! :lol:)

    Thanks for that, the pictures look great at least it seams to power up ok

    as you are busy & not got a hard drive to test it with, how about this il pay you £12 now & after iv tested it with my hard drive & it works ok il pay you the other £8.

    Or i by the looks of it there is a memory card reader on the front of it, do you have a memory card to try & see if it plays from it.

    Not a big problem just wondering if you still got the the manual for it in case i want to learn how to set it to record. Which i wont need to for a while as iv got a V+ box at the mo, If not dont worry about it il just have to have a play around with it
