Ziotek 150-CD Carousel
« on: December 05, 2007, 04:37:59 am »
The "Ziotek Media Carousel Plus" manages 150 discs. They're also only $200 (even as little as $139), 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, 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.
