    Default Help! Using old pc as mp3 player

    I've got some old computers laying around and I'd like to just use one to load up all my mp3's along with winamp and the pacemaker plug-in for pitch transposing to use in my jam room.

    I'm not real computer savy. I wouldnt be using the pc for anything other than this, a glorifed mp3 player. Whats' the best way to go about this? What can I wipe off of the pc? I need it to run smooth, what's the minium that it needs to run these programs?

    I know I saw a website about how to do this before, but my google search has been fruitless.

    Can any of you gurus shed some light or point to a website?

    Thanks guys!

    Hopefully you have the original operating system CD, so then I'd just format the thing and reload the operating system and then you could install winamp. If that's all you're going to use it for and you're not going on the internet, you don't need Office (or other word processing suite), you don't need an antivirus, you shouldn't need anything else, really. Obviously you'll need whatever drivers aren't included with your operating system (especially your sound card!) but nothing more.

    I would still load an antivirus, just to be safe. I wouldn't want my MP3 collection wiped out by a virus. Go to free.grisoft.com and download AVG for free. Besides that, just like Billy said. Install windows and all the updates, and drivers, load winamp and go. Enjoy. That's not a bad idea, I've got an old pc or 3 or 4. lying around. I might do that this weekend.

    Later,
