Yes....exactly ...the CDROM drives do work with a voltage(on the 12v line) a little bit lower than than 12V....even i thought that they wouldnt work..untill i connected it and found it was working.

About the 7805....well it heats up like crazy....mine was connected to a CPU heatsink salvaged from a dead computer.

Ahh...and another thing...the CDROM drive in car thingie is not feasible in the long run...it's just something you can do just for kicks(actually sounds OK too)...or rather just to prove that it can be done!! It gets pretty irritating when the CDs skip even over moderately bumpy roads.I myself used it for a month and then bought a proper car CD player !!

I've seen some taxis playing MP3's using normal computer CD-ROMs in their cars with the help of some internal mods.

What are the so called "internal mods" ?

I don't think that the normal computer CD-ROMs will last for-ever when used in the cars since their anti-shock ability is so pathetic...

Haven't you seen an old CDROM drive on an old PC with an earphone jack socket on the front plate.

Well, stick-in an earphone jack and connect it to an amplifier and speakers.

You will have a CD player for Rs. 2000.

Simple enough?
