I use the USB cable and charge directly from my computer. I was suprised to find that when I inserted the cord into my MP3 player smoke began to rise. I removed the cable to find the metal components red/orange hot, and the corner of the cord’s plug a brown/bronze color (probably a burn). My MP3 still works fine, but I’m afraid to charge it again.
Anyone know if I could just buy a new usb cord, or do I have to get a new MP3?
