DR1000s with broken USB port
I’ve found myself in a rather frustrating situation. My DR1000S works great in every way – except that the mini-usb port has broken off. Or, more precisely, it "fell in".
Since this removes the only way to charge, the fact that I can still read and annotate while the battery drains is almost poignant.
What should I do? Don’t think I dare opening up the reader myself. I've damaged the case enough when hopelessly trying to connect the cable to the reader.
Other than that, I may have to sell the reader (for its screen and parts) to anyone interested.

If I remember well there is also a thread somewhere that describes changing the usb connector, but I have not found it yet.
Please let us know how(if) you solved this, to help other people that might get the same problem.
