Re: it wont charge on my computer
Unfortunately, the USB cable is only used to download photos from the camera. It will not charge the battery. You need to purchase a battery charger, and because the battery is proprietary for this camera, you will probably have to get one from Canon (unless you can find one on eBay or Amazon). The charger (in the US) is the CB-2LV and Canon sells it here for $50.

The camera does not charge via the USB connection. Connecting the camera to the computer drains the battery faster, as the camera has to communicate with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say). To charge the battery, take it out of the camera, put it into the supplied charger, and plug the charger into a wall outlet.
You have to use the battery charger included with the camera, or a replacement unit. The camera does not have charging circuitry built-in. Connecting the camera to a computer runs down the battery faster, as the camera must then communicate with the computer.
You can actually charge this camera right from your computer's USB port. Use the small, rectangular hole and plug the small end of the USB cord into that and the other end into the USB port in your computer or laptoip. The green charging light should come on but the computer won't recognize new hardware since you don't need to turn the camera on. In fact, it will charge faster if you leave it off, so you can just leave that plugged in for a few hours and go about your business.
Hope that helps. Good luck. :)
Go to the GE website, consult your manual if you still have it, go to RadioShack and see if they might have a replacement charging cord. Maybe at the GE website you can order the charging cord. Good luck.
You charge it by plugging into the usb plug on the camera. When you purchased the camera there should have been 2 cords that came with it. A usb plug to your computer, and a usb plug to plug into an outlet. Both will charge your battery. You should be able to purchase a usb to computer cord at a Circut City or other electronics store. Just make sure you take the camera to the store with you. To make sure you get the correct cord.
