how are the pioneer headunits with the usb outlet handle portable hard drives?? does it open the media fast or slow??? do i need to be aware of any weird error messages or anything? just wondering because im kind of tired of an ipod plus i keep killing them. so anybody have hard drive experience with the pioneer line of decks???? just would like to know because its a hell of alot cheaper then a new ipod and i get twice the room so i appreciate the help in advanced.

Can use up to a 250g
Depending on brand of hard drive, you might need to run separate power supply.
Data, is fast with the deck.

Hope this helps.

Just make sure you get one that derives its power from the usb drive and has shock absorbers..OR putting in your glovebox with a lot of padding would work to. Personally I think having a external in a car is overkill unless you have a DVD player. I got a 8 gig thumb drive and only have 2 gigs of it used...which is 150ish songs.
