Does anyone know if i was to buy a External Hard drive can you pick which songs to play & not to play or is it a case of plug & play & u have no control over which songs it plays or in which order..? Help PLEASE Thankyou!! CM
An external hard drive is the same as an internal one in the way you manage and use data on it. Depending on the drive and which level of USB port you have, the data transfer may be a bit slower but that is about the only difference you may notice.
In the same way you manage your music on your internal drive(s) you can do exactly the same with the external drive. You may have to tell WMP or whatever you use where to look.
"Raven & JohnDrew" thanks for ALL of your time!! If i could pick your brains one more time please, so i want to play the music via my hifi can it be done..? as in can i plug it in my hifi..? if so THEN is it a case of plug & play there is no way of selecting what u want to listen to..??? Many thanks CM
The other way to play your music via your hi-fi would be to burn the various selections to CD. With a multi-changer this could give you hours of music. be cheaper than a hd media player but perhaps less convenient as well.
