Bill... is this with a generic car charger or a generic computer USB cable connected to your computer? Were you just charging or also shooting video with the cord? The vendor's description was a bit hard to fully understand how their supplied cord was the only one that will work to do what.
As I understood what was said, any USB cord from PC to camera should work to charge and/or as a web cam, but only their car charger will work from a car plug to charge and video. Maybe a generic car charger will will charge OK, but not also allow the camera to shoot video at the same time? Still some questions to be answered.
