Handspring Visor

Way back in the Dark Ages, I owned one of these devices primarily to use as an eBook reader. I loved it. It was backlit, and I knew how to convert books to PDB format to read. Of course, technology moved forward, and I put the thing away.

Recently I unearthed the thing after a move. It's missing a stylus, but I put in fresh batteries and I find it still works. The eBook reader app I installed is still there, so I'm thinking of hanging onto it. I know where to get replacement software for synching, too.

Question is, I need a USB cradle for it. The old one is lost. Any ideas on a decent priced one?

I have a spare cradle and installation CD, which I am happy to post out to you for a nominal cost (I live in London). I have been reading on my Visor for many years. I bought it for £5 on Ebay and I would not swap it for a kindle or a sony. It is great.

I know this is an old thread, but how do you get your ebooks onto the Visor? I used to have one and loved it.
