From: Chuck Urwiler (curwiler_at_comcast.net)
I was able to get mine to charge a bit by plugging the USB cable into my
computer, but not allowing it to go past the boot. This way, the drive was
never mounted by the OS, and therefore never spun up after the initial
one. I had to let the FMR "restart" several times before it had enough
power to keep itself alive.
Perhaps that will help you until you can land a universal type power
adapter that will work.

I just tried it, I think I'll try a some chargers (6V or 5V 700mA-1500mA)
... And about the USB problem, any ideas ? I saw Linus had a FM Recorder
too, so he's maybe some clues about it... (mean about the way I can handle
the USB detection, and if this one is handled by hard or by software...)
