Been too busy to follow up on this project.

Thanks, shoefly2k for the tips on how to read the resistors. A digital multimeter may or may not work, depending on how it's terminated, but I may try that for the resistors.

As for the caps, they are large enough to read, but the brand is unknown, and therefore the cross-reference between the numbers and the actual values is unknown, too. *sigh*

I strongly suspect that both the resistors and the caps are needed to "switch on" the outputs on the sansa.

I may just try a direct-wire, and see what happens-- it could be that the resistance of an actual "live" connection is enough to switch on the sansa.

The extra components seem to be in parallel anyway.... they may just be noise filters.

I'm planning on modifying an existing car charger I already own, so that the power connetors are already "done" I just need to solder to the new, fully populated connector from the one on the charger (which _only_ has the power lines in the connector-- none of the rest are present).

Will post here, my results.
