Default Best MP3 Player that used PATA 2.5'' Hard Drive?

I recently acquired a 100GB hard drive from an old iBook and I in considering what to do with it, I thought it might be useful to install it in an old hard drive MP3 player so I could have that benefit in addition to having an external drive.



I already have an old Archos Jukebox 20 but I'm curious if there's something less old out there that might be better.

Well you could get an external enclosure and also get a raspberry pi micro computer and build a music jukebox out of the two and be out ~$70. That would be my suggestion, or you could buy a media player that attaches to your TV and put the HDD into an external enclosure and use it for storage on the media player.

Ah now that I re-read it, it makes sense. Awhile ago I wanted to build a music server for my house but decided that I have enough trouble getting one library into shape and didn't want to have to deal with multiple one's. I find it much easier to have one library on my laptop so I can take it anywhere with me.
