no lah... juz teasing.. but won't suggest plugging the hdd into the car's usb slot.. coz hdd may end up damaged coz of the moving needle inside the hdd that will scratch the disc surface esp when car is moving.. if scratch, den can say bye bye to whole hdd lor...

technically speaking it should work, but it's bad for the HDD cos of the vibrations inside the car... not sure whether it'll take a long time for the HU to read the HDD too

oops.. seriously, i would recommend that you do not plug ur portable HDD into the car.. Coz any sudden car movements can really dmg the disc surfaces and once that happens, ur data will be lost.. Use flash memory - ie thumbdrive, etc... anyway, there's high capacity flash drives which can oredi store a lot of songs leh..

I think can't play song... so no point putting in... Because the USB port taps the data and format from ipod/iphone...
