Question about charging new ZVM
Hi, I just got a refurbished ZVM from Creative, and prior to this I had a Zen MicroPhoto, and sold it for parts/repair on Ebay after it died,and didn't sell the Creative AC/USB charger that I had been using for it, because a customer service person at Creative had told me I could use it to charge the ZVM when I got it, via the sync adapter.I tried doing that a while ago, and it didn't seem to be going anywhere as far as charging. I had the charging icon on the screen for a while, then it disappeared, but the blue light was still blinking. I went and borrowed my wife's actual ac adapter that she uses for her ZVM, and when I plugged it in, the ZVM powered up right away, and continued charging, but it was very low. I powered it off, and now it seems to be charging fine. My question is, did I do any harm using my ac/usb charger plugged into the usb port on the sync adapter? From what I was reading at the Creative site, they don't recommend it. It wasn't some third party charger, it's a Creative, but an AC/USB charger.It was plugged in like that for a couple hours. I sure hope not. Thanks in advance!
