You can use your computer USB post but it has to be USB 2.0 compatible or else it wont charge. you can also purchase a usb wall plug because most standard USB devices usually have an output of 5v. This is a lot better since you wont have to walk around with a computer or laptop to charge your camera, lol Radio Shack around ten bucks.
Many iBook G3s came with optical drives for CDs only, not DVDs; and the decoding software for many of today's popular video formats runs extremely slow on all G3 processors. It's not clear that there is anything wrong with your computer other than its age. The first iBook G3 models were ten years old last February.
If you have the original Install CDs that came with the iBook put in
Install Disk 1. When the Menu Bar appears go to Disk Utility (under file manu). Choose your HD and look for
the S.M.A.R.T. status. It should be Verified. Then choose Repair
Permissions. After that is done choose Repair Disk.
If none of this works find the Hardware Test Disk and run that.
I ran into this with my home network and my old g3 ibook needed the older speed wifi to connect. I found my old wifi router, hooked an ethernet cable to the newer router (in a regular ethernet port) and connected the other end to the internet port on the old one... they linked and worked fine to provide wifi for the old G3's ..
I had this problem with a G3 ibook. All our other laptops and desktops were fine but the old G3 was left w/o a connection. I did install an older wifi router that was pre G3 type and put it in line with the other modem via an ethernet cable from the normal router e-net port to the internet e-net port on the older style router... now eveyone can access w/o issue. This may be the reason for your prob, too.
You ned to contact an Internet Service Provider to determine if your USB wireless adapter is compatible with their service.
Read this info for an idea on how to connect to the Internet :-
There several ways to connect to the Internet. 1. You can use a cable or DSL modem and connect this modem to the laptop with a LAN cable. 2. You can use a wireless router with a cable or DSL modem and connect to the wireless router using a wireless card (a PCMCIA wireless card or the laptop may have a built-in wireless card). This wireless card can also be used in WiFi locations such as the airport, McDonalds and Starbucks etc. 3. You can use an USB G3 wireless adapter. This type of device uses the G3 mobile network and may not give you Internet coverage in some locations. All these require an Internet Service Provider and the costs vary widely depending upon the various plans they offer. Check the ISP in your area and compare the plans and cost of their plans and pick the one that best suits your needs.
If you can detect wireless connections in your area, then you have a wireless card in your Apple.
You cannot connect to the Internet unless you have a DSL or cable modem that connects to an Internet Service Provider.
You can connect to the Internet using a public access WiFi hot spot, these are located at McDonalds, Star Bucks and at the airport etc. and some Internet Cafe. There maybe some charges for these Internet connection.
