PC CD Drive Modification Into Vehicle
A friend of mine came to me because he wanted to adapt an ASUS CD Drive Model No.: CD-S520/A in the Audio System of his vehicle.
He selected this unit for the following features:
First thing done was to get a LM7805 (3-Terminal 1A Positive Voltage Regulator) and below is the schematic:
Why need to get a +5 volts Voltage regulator IC LM7805? Because this PC CD Drive need 5 volt and 12 volt to function. The vehicle only supply +12 volts.
Obviously the job began, look at the photos below.
As you can see, the Electrical Diagram was ready now. Next step would be to test the input of +12 volts and the +5 volts provided by the LM7805.
So far everything was really fine, so the CD unit was assembled and connected in his car to the audio-in of his old Stereo Cassette Player and music was heard as a clarion. He can drives his vehicle now hearing his Audio CDs, and he’s very happy now.
Note: this system only play back Audio CDs (audio tracks).
