No schematic but you have to build a regulator for 5V / 2A voltage / current and use the 12V from battery. Pick a CD-ROM with headphone connector and buttons in front and you need just the power. Use google to find the pinout, I think the yellow is +12V, red one is +5V and black is ground. PC power extension cable with suitable connector are available in your nearest computer shop. Thank you.
