I went to radio shack and bought an DC to AC converter (plugs into your cig lighter and has a DC plug at the other end) and just use the other DC provided plug. it works much better. I bought one by "powerline" that has dual plugs and a usb port. it has a long estension and the unit can sit away from the cig lighter.(great for lap tops and other stuff to be used in the car as well!) its also fused. solved all my problems. it cost about 30$.

Didn't anyone take shop in grade school and high school? Get any adapter from another brand name that has the same volts and amps.
Keep the old adapter if the new adapter has a different tip use the old one. Simple cut but wires on both adapters like 10-12 inches from the tip. Either use wire strippers or burn off the plastic wait a few seconds so you don't burn you fingers pinch the plastic and pull off the plastic repeat if necess. about 1/2 to 1 inch.
The outside wire is the ground wire and there is more plastic under the ground wire. Peel down the ground wire twist the wire together; do the same to the other adapter wire the new one.
Get some electricial tape interweve bare ground wires together than wrap the ground wire connection like twice or buy the shrink wrap for radio shack.
The positive wire is the inside wire strip the positive on the tip adapter wire that fits your dvd player.
Do the same for the new adapter. twist the two positives together than wrap with electric tape.
Your done you can go to goodwill as-is stores find the adapter pay 80 cents for the used adapter you save ? $20.
I found a Mintek adapter 9v 2.2 amp. that was the same as my DUR-10.
Then use the wire stripper or do the same as above
