Re: CAN I CHARGE IT ON THE COMPUTER?
This device does not have that capability. Your cheapest solution would be to buy a battery charger and some rechargeable batteries. WalMart has one for under $10 that includes charger with two AA's and two AAA's included. This way you could be charging one while using the other of the AAA's.

Several things could keep your iPod's battery from charging. The major causes are listed below in logical order. Check each one to see if it's what's keeping your battery from charging. Low-powered USB port iPods that connect to USB ports require a high-power USB port.
Keyboards and some USB hubs will not charge iPod. Connect iPod directly to the computer or to a USB AC power adapter. Click here for more information. Connect directly to computer If you connect iPod to something that connects to the computer (like a USB hub or FireWire drive), connect iPod directly to the USB or
FireWire port on the computer. FireWire port on a Windows PC The FireWire (IEEE 1394) ports on some Windows-compatible computers may not be powered, and consequently won't charge iPod when you plug it in. Check here to see if the FireWire port on your PC can charge iPod. Your computer goes to sleep Your computer can only charge iPod when it's turned on and not asleep. Make sure your computer is on and not set to go to sleep when you want to charge iPod. Tip:
Some Macintosh computers can charge iPod even though they're asleep. If your sleeping computer doesn't charge iPod, don't worry, just wake it and let iPod charge. hope this helps
I have a question, how do you know that it can't keep a charge if it doesn't charge? Anyway, it's either a problem with your battery or the power cable. If your phone seems to be charging when you plug it in, then you probably need a new battery. If it seems like your battery isn't even charging when you plug it in, then it's most likely a problem with your power cable and you'll probably need to buy another.
If you are trying to charge it, and your computer says "OK to disconnect", then you can just ignore it. This is your computer telling you that disconnecting the device will not adversely affect the computer. If it's your MP3 player that is saying "OK to disconnect", I can only tell you that keeping it plugged into your computer via a USB cord will probably continue to charge it.
If you're unsure, disconnect it from the computer and see if there's an indicator for the amount of battery life remaining on your player.
connect the usb cord you received with the device to the device and to your computer and it will charge automatically. generally you want to charge a device for several hours at least, most devices will let you know when they are done charging.
Try charging it up on a different computer. It says in the instructions
that they cannot guarantee the charging of the battery on personally
assembled or modified computers. I had the same problem with mine on
our independent computer shop bought PC, but it is charging up fine now
that I've plugged it into my hubby's laptop which was bought in a PC
supermarket. I hope this helps.
First, please check your connection (I'm sure you have already done this). Make sure that the cable is plugged in and working on both ends.
If that is fine, I would recommend taking it back and getting a new one. If you just recently purchased it, you should be able to return without a problem. It sounds like you might have a defective product and you don't want to get stuck with it after the return period.
Good news is that when you get the new one, if you use iTunes, it will automatically sync up and you wont have to manually load songs.
Hope this was helpful but if you still have questions, let me know.
Have a great day
for some **** reason the new ipod nano (4th generation) does not support FireWire and therefore will not charge on any docking station that is a FireWire power sorce - which seems to be most of them out there!
have same problem so will end up charging from computer as docking station still plays the new nano, no point in buying new docking station just for sake of charging!
The USB cable was having issues with our computer. We could download the music but it would not charge. Had to buy a USB accessible charger that plugged into the wall. I suggest the Sony AC power adapter. It's a USB power supply for Sony and iPod.
Plug it into the computer (the cord you would use to charge it and transfer files), and hold down the power button for at least 15 seconds. The Sansa should then begin to turn on and start charging. :)
