Charging via USB

I was wondering if there is a way to have the Sansa plugged into a USB port on a computer to keep it charged, but still listen to it at the same time?

Re: Charging via USB

not by default there isnt. Plug in your cable halfway and it will do this though, so that only certain pins are touch. Or you can get a wallcharger and it does this.

Re: Charging via USB

Thanks.  I have a wall charger, but in my cube at work, the outlet is about 5 feet from my computer.  So I was hoping to just plug the USB cable into the computer.  I'll just buy a USB extension.

Re: Charging via USB

Try this:

Turn the computer off.

Plug the Player in.

Turn the computer on.

The computer will connect to the player then disconnect, and will charge but you can still play.
