I lost my usb cable to my (I know it is a piece of junk but I actually like running with it better than my ipod) Verge DFP200 while I was deployed. I had to listen to the same mix for a year and a half. I'm just trying to get a replacement cable - it isn't a standard usb cable. I tried circuit city who gave me a number for verge that has been disconnected. Any ideas?

Re: Verge MP3 DFP200
According to all the reviews, forums etc. I could find, it is a standard USB 1.1 4-pin type A male to type B male cable.
Here is one example but there should be a hundred different versions of the same at any computer store for very little cash;
If this is not the right cable, then if you could post back with a photo of the connector socket on the player from close up and a couple of different angles we can hopefully identify which it needs.
No one is going to design a special cable for an MP3 player of this value, it would be a pointless expense unless they were going to continue selling the cable exclusively, which they are not doing.
There are however quite a lot of "standard" USB cable designs which are all different and not very standard.
Let me know if you have tried this cable type with no success, and with a photo or two so that I can identify the right one if that is the case.
Verge have vanished from the face of the earth, so don't waste your time trying to contact them. I had no luck finding anyone else who admits to having picked up Verge's torch either, so we have to hope that the people involved are enjoying their Caribbean hideaways.
Hope this helps :)

You don't need a charger, it will charge via USB if you have the original USB connection cable for it. Suggest if you do not have that cable, that you get one off of eBay, that will cost less (most likely) than buying one from Apple.
Here is the link to the correct cable at the Apple Store:
If you have the cable, just plug it into any USB port on your computer and it will charge your iPod. If you actually want the plug into the wall that will provide USB power, then here is Apple's product link, though any USB charger will work:
Honestly I could not find one either maybe the reason being that is quite an inexpensive piece. I see them online for $15.99, you are better off just buying the same model brand new. If you were to find the actual cable I guarantee the cable is at least more than 50% of $16 ($8) so I would just go after a new one instead.

If you have a piece from the USB cable stuck inside your USB port, the computer needs to be serviced. Until that piece is removed you will not be able to use the port. I do not recommend trying to remove the piece youself.

Ah, this is the biggest fault with the RCA Opal: the dedicated USB cord. My suggestion: buy another one, take the USB cord out and return it to the store saying you opened it and you didn't get a USB....and that you'll buy another one at another store.
i know it's sneaky, but that's the only way.
