You don't need to buyt one. I will see if I still have one lying around. If you want it, I can send it to you.

Another question. I remember reading somehwere that you have to have a dc made before a certain date to use that. Do you know what the date is?

Thanks

You can buy the DC-X at lik-sang. There's reviews farther down the page.
