MP3 hard drive component???

Does anybody make a standard component sized digital music hard drive? I was thinking of just buying an Xbox to use as an 8 gig WMA jukebox, but the process for saving and labling music seems pretty cumbersome and can only be done from WAV CDs. Unfortunately, everything else I've seen looks like an Ipod or like a spaceship.

Does anybody make anything standard component sized with a black face that I can fill up from my PC...presumably by USB.

If not, why the hell not, and do you think I could get a patent?

Alternatively, can anybody recommend a good 5 disk CD changer that plays MP3s. I need digital output and a random feature...and that's about it.

purchase an xbox , modify it just to use xbmc .....

Will allow you to copy your ripped music from your pc to your xbox, or just stream them to the machine.

Prob. just a easier and more functional device than just a standalone music jukebox.
