    In spite of the fact that it says this, it does seem to charge on my phone. I don't use the phone for media playing or the like, but the charge seems to hold for a long enough period with my usage (two-three days).

Sony nwz-w262 is recognize by the pc, but it will not charge

I have to assume you are using an USB port. Be aware not all USB ports on a PC can deliver 5 Volt and if they do, it could be the current coming from a port can be insufficient to start the charging ps a modern phone. On an my iPad there is even a message like can't charge from computer as soon as I connect to the PC.
Try an external charger or perhaps just another USB port on the same computer.

I have a genx mp4 player model-gmp4-01. the moment i connect it with my pc through usb it gets charged automatically but i am not able to access its files like removable disk. also the windows does no

The USB cable is probably strictly a charging cable, not a sync cable or a dual charging/sync cable, so it will only charge the player but not make it visible to/accessible by your computer. You can get a sync cable or if you already have a multi-port USB hub that you use to connect devices to your computer (mouse, flash drive(s), etc.), try connecting the player through an available port on the hub.

Can you charge the 1440 using a usb to the computer?

For the software version: In the menu go to "Product Information" you will find it there.

If your GPS receiver has power pin port and a USB port the internal battery cannot be charged using your computer. You must use the supplied vehicle power adapter to charge the receiver's internal battery.

If your GPS receiver only contains a USB port it can be charged by your computer however we recommend using the supplied Vehicle Power Adapter.

Charging the internal battery using your computer may take up to 12 hours. Charging the internal battery using he supplied Pehicle power Adapter takes 4 - 6 hours. The receiver can be powered on or off while charging.

plug it in to your computer via the usb cable for a few hours, the car and home chargers are not recommended for the initial charge as there only a trickle charge...if it still hasn't charged up using the usb cable, there is probably a problem with the usb port(charging port)

let me know how you make out after charging it via the usb cable that was supplied with the unit.

Can I charge my Magellan roadmate with USB cable connected to the computer?

It depends on the Roadmate that you have. :
- If your Roadmate has a separate plug-in port for charging your unit IN ADDITION TO a USB port, then no, your Roadmate cannot be charged using your computer via the USB cable.
- If your Roadmate only has a USB port available for charging your unit, then yes, you can charge it via your computer via USB.
However, please note, according to Magellan, charging your unit using your PC via USB can take up to 12 hours to charge vs. 4-6 hours when using the vehicle power adapter.
FYI: This is mainly due to USB constraints on pretty much all electronic devices. USB cannot carry the same amount of power to a device. It uses what is commonly known as a 'trickle' charge to recharge a device. It carries much less current than a full-blown charger (like an AC power adapter).

Garmin gps won't charge while driving

If the Nuvi won't charge when connected to charge but charges on USB, then the charger port is faulty.

If the Nuvin does not charge at all , then the battery must be replaced.

Shows Li-On battery charged when plugged into AC, shuts down when unplugged

Here is a palm article on the battery not holding charge-,/

My battery loses its charge very quickly

Like all Lithium Ion batteries, the battery in your device will eventually wear out. If you charge your device fully but it loses power after a few hours (or sooner), it may be time to replace the internal battery.

Sounds like you already did this. Do you have someone you know who has the same battery you could try? Or try your battery in their device?

Also this site looks good -

Step #11

You can connect it via USB and let it charge that way a little while, then try charging it normally. It's called trickle charging-

Trickle charging
Some Palm devices have the ability to "trickle charge" from a USB port on a PC or Mac. This means that it receives a very small amount of charging from the USB port, even if it is not connected to its AC charger. If your device is capable of this function, the charging time will be significantly longer for a trickle charge (depending on the power rating of the PC USB port). However, the device may not charge at all on an unpowered USB hub (or for example off off a keyboard).
