Hey is there a way to use an AVR to control a CDrom as a homemade makeshift CD player? maybe output the track number and time on an LCD?
the CDrom I got is an older one with a built in DAC and vol control. but no play and next-track button.

Im just curious.

any ideas?

This is possible and has propably been done before. There was just a week or so ago a thread about this. My friend did a ATAPI cd-rom player with a 8515.

Did you try to follow the link in Jespers posts in that thread?

Did you do the search yourself, and evaluate other hits apart from the one I pointed to?

Did you try to do searchs for other words one could imagine would produce relevant hits?
