    Hi everyone.

    I'm back motivated to do some more projects. I've got some more 'physicy' projects lined up (making cathode ray tubes, electron guns, tesla coils, etc), but I feel that something cool to do with μC's would be great.

    So I came across this project here:

    http://www.teuthis.com/html/mmc_mp3.html

    And I thought "That looks good", due to the fact that it comes with all the files and schematics I need. However, when I went to the files here:

    http://www.walrus.com/~raphael/mp3/MMC_version/

    My computer wouldn't recognise the files for the pcb.

    What program should this be for? I thought they might be for eagle, which I do have - how do I get it to recognise them?

    Many thanks,

    Sparky

    You are indeed very clever.

    I obviously have heard of a scroll bar. :p

    Thanks. ;)

    Ok, so in a future not so far away, you'll use it. And probably like it.;)

    Cool project btw!

    "Sparky's analysis of the lesser-spotted scroll bar". ;)

    Okay, another question.

    What SD card holder should I use? I cannot get the exact holder the guy uses, but the whole idea of number of connectors/pins/etc confuses me to high heaven.

    Would any work? What should I look out for?

    I've since found another project which looks easier:

    http://www.teuthis.com/html/mp3.html

    However, I have no experience with Compact Flash. How easy is this stuff to work with? Any info on it would be great.
