Converting from a usb to ac power adapter

by rushwillow / July 27, 2007 12:47 AM PDT

My sister purchase a RCA Opal 2gig player. She loves the display, It is big and bright. She can only she out of one eye so that is important to her,, but it needs to be charged by way of the usb port on a computer. She doesn't own one!! She had a old mp3 generic player that charged by way of a usb connection to a AC power adapter. I was wondering if that would work. I called RCA support line. They really don't know much there. I really not sure why it wouldn't work I would think the power would be right. As long as the connection would fit.
I gave her a old laptop that was only able to run win98. The opal needs xp. But with laptop on it was able to charge the player. She is planning on doing alot of traveling here soon and doesn't need to lug around a heavy old laptop just to charge the player.

Should work. My wife uses one on her Cowon. For the same reason as your sister would.

(NT) It will be fine. USB chargers are generic.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
