Default Any ideas on how to adapt a PSP screen for use with a DVD player or somethin else

I have a screen from a PSP, perfect condition. The only thing is that it connects to the PSP using a ribbon cable.. it has like 40 small prongs on the ribbon cable that pluged into a little port on the PSP motherbord. How could I adapt the screen to other uses? It would be so sweet to use it for data logging or interface it with a megasquirt, it is a very nice screen. Any ideas??

3 places to check. a PSP site, and a Palm Treo Site, they can help you with the cables issues, treonauts.com and even try lumenlab.com, they do alot with LCDs and they use those small ribbon cable interior to the screen.
