View Full Version : Car2PC - Anyone have/use this?

04-24-2007, 02:49 PM
I just picked up one of these Car2PC adapters (connects your PC to your CD changer port) and I've been having all sorts of problems. I can't figure out if it has something to do with my model/year or if I just have a faulty unit.

Has anyone else gotten one of these? Any success in getting it working? I have to hit the "Mode" button about 20 times before it will switch over and play tunes of my PC.

EDIT: Almost forgot, if you DON'T have one and it sounds cool, you can order one from this site: http://www.indashpc.org/

Everything that I've seen that connects to the cd changer port needs to have a cd changer hooked up too. If the changer isn't hooked up the mode button is dead.

In this case, the device actually emulates a CD changer (so the head unit thinks it's talking to a CD changer) and translates the CD changer commands so that Winamp or Windows Media Player can understand them. So all the buttons work for changing tracks, etc.
