My Casio Exilim is the smaller one, 2.0 megapixels. Have had it a while. When I put it in the cradle I think the red light usually comes on, then goes to green when it has charged. Right now it does nothing when I put it in the cradle. If I press the right hand button, a green light flashes once on my camera (not on the cradle) but still no charge. How do I charge it?

No. The EX-Z60 does not charge the battery through the USB port. You need to use the supplied charger. Alternatively, if you have the EX-Z60DX cradle, you can plug the camera into the cradle and plug the cradle into a wall outlet. However, using the cradle will not let you charge the camera through the USB port either.
I called casio and they told me that when you have a red flashing light on the charger it means the lithium battery is no longer any good. They offered to send me one free of charge. It's been several weeks and I have yet to receive it.
The cradle is defective. Casio replaced the first one of mine for free then they told me to sit and spin when the second one broke 8 months later. I had only used the camera ~ 10 times. So, I went to a big box electonic store (Best Buy) and bought a Digipower travel charger. It charged the battery up just fine. I also bought a Dynex Memory Card Reader/Writer to transfer the photos to my computer. Good luck. The defective cradle is a known problem that Casio is refusing to correct.
Here is how you fix the problem (without using a 9V battery method...).
The battery doesn't charge because it's been fully discharged.
What you do is you put the camera into the cradle. Now you see that the Red LED comes on solid for a while. It's charging for a few seconds. Then it starts blinking. When it does that - TAKE THE CAMERA OUT of the cradle.
Now put the camera back and repeat. Do this six or eight times. Each time what's happening is that the battery is getting a tiny bit of charge. After 8 times the LED will come on red and stay solid red.
I gave my wife also one of the Casio Exilim cameras. She doesn't take a lot of pictures. But so far the battery has not failed us. There might be a chance that your battery has died on you. I suggest you go to Casio and ask them to test the battery. I'm guessing it is the battery that has conked out. If it isn't then you need to have Casio check on your camera.
