fast and easy way to get 3.3v from 5v without a lm317?
i got a dvd player but the power supply was missing. i can get the 5v and the 12v, but other than a lm317 (which i dont have) i cant get 3.3v. ive looked at all sorts of things to try and find a 3.3v regulator, but everything i have searched up lead to several misleading results.
so i was wondering, what value resistor could i use to get 3.3v from 5v or what devices could i look in to find a 3.3v regulator? i have several computer motherboards, a bunch of cd drives, a couple hard drives, etc.
