    I have a question about controlling an external drive, an IDE.

    This might be impossible or plan stupid. Can you stick a FLASH MP3 player into the daisy chain USB slot on an external and control it? even an iPOD to control it.

    any thoughts?

    You should be able to. You might not be able to charge the battery through the daisy chain but you should be able to have it show up in iTunes/mount on your desktop.
