Need Help- I want to build an MP3 Player

Not open for further replies.

I joined this forum because i am interested in making an mp3 player. Ive searched extensively but i was wondering if any of you could help in any of the following ways:
1. Do you know any good sites with step by step instructions? I am pretty much a beginner....but i have a bit of experience from making an amp. (http://tangentsoft.net/audio/cmoy-tutorial/assy.html). I do not want a kit.

2. Id like to make one that sacrifices power output, memory capacity, and, if necessary, sound quality ALL FOR SIZE. This thing must be tiny.

Do you think this is possible? I think it is, but im gonna need alot of help. (also alot of time patience and money, but im willing).



go to www.avrfreaks.org and search in the user submitted projects section. You'll find at least 3 MP3 players, at least one of which has schematics, all have source code. It operates off of I believe an AVR microcontroller and reads from a FAT32 hard drive.


PJRC also has a kit, schematics, source, and diagrams for one that is fairly complete. It also reads from a FAT32 drive and uses regular drams for buffer memory. It is based on a C51 of some type.
