This is my first post in this forum. I'm not even a noob, since I haven't purchased my Arduino yet. But since I knew about it, I have been thinking of a good excuse to put my hands on it, play and attempt to build something. Finally I got one.
My Arduino project is to build a media player that supports iPod, FM radio and MP3 audio from USB mass storage devices. I've seen some examples of similar projects, so I know it can be done, but I'm not sure if it would be too much difficult for someone starting with Arduino. On the other hand, I'm a programmer, and I guess that skill should prove useful for the task.
Would you stick to this project of mine as it is? If so, where should I start gathering info and buying elements? Or would you rather tell me out of it and try something easier for starters?
Thanks in advance for your help and feedback, and kind regards,
