How would I recharge a portable MP3 player's battery if the computer freezes every time I plug it in to the USB port? Answered
A while ago, I found an MP3 player sitting outside on the ground. It was rather wet 'cause it been been sitting in the rain for quite a while. Anyway, the MP3 player I found is a Philips "GoGear" 4 Gig, and it uses the same kind of plug for charging that many cameras use. Like what the question says, every time I plug it into the USB port to charge it, it freezes the computer and the player's screen says "OK to disconnect" and it shuts off as soon as I unplug it. On this site I've seen people make comments on how the recharge a battery by connecting wires up to the battery's positive and negative terminals. (Or something like that) Would this tactic work with the MP3 player's battery? If not, what else could work?
