I have the fe-220. I believe yours has similiar properties. They require a separate charger for the battery. Hooking up to a usb is not going to charge your battery. The LI-40c charger should have come with your camera. If you purchased aftermarket, contact seller to obtain specific charger for your camera.
Good Luck and let me know if I can be of further assistance.
Stop using this camera (Olympus FE-210), warn all your friends and relatives about this piece of junk, send the camera back to Olympus COD. Take the money you save from not buying more batteries for this camera and buy a decent camera from a reputable manufacturer.
