Title: Ziotek 150-CD Carousel
Post by: Matthew on December 05, 2007, 04:37:59 am
The "Ziotek Media Carousel Plus (http://www.ziotek.com/templates/searchdetail.asp?productID=10670)" manages 150 discs. They're also only $200 (even as little as $139 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B000G7WZQY/ref=dp_olp_2)), controlled by USB to select which disc to pop out. They don't have a player/recorder, but could they be combined with a single-disc player, with LMCE controlling both devices, for an automated solution? Is there some way to automate the ejected disc from the carousel to load into the player drive?

I know, the Sony XL-1B does it all for only $200 or so, but they're going to run out sometime. Could this carousel, or maybe one similar to it (http://www.amazon.com/Century-100-Pc-Electronic-Organizer-Carousel/dp/B000HE7N7W/ref=pd_sim_e_title_2), ensure LMCE has automated jukebox features indefinitely?

a new device would have to be made to deal with the changer, a Disk Drive Embedded device could be used to deal with the companion drive.
