What can make a sweet high end car stereo even better? Some custom electronics to relocate the USB interface will do the trick.

“Some friends buy me a nice MP3 player for my car last year. This stuff looks great and you can even plug a hard-drive. The main issue is that the firmware only support 999 files on a single USB device, so that’s enougth for ~4Go of MP3 but not more.

I decided to open it, and try add a external USB in the back. I think my friends will understand this: “If you can’t open it, you don’t own it” First, I decided to open the front panel, to look how the USB plug is connected. As you can see on the aboves pictures, the USB power-supply come form the main board.”
