How to Play While Charging

I have yet to figure out how to play the Pilot while plugged into the PC. I've tried everything including the Charger Settings in the USB Settings menu which don't seem to do anything.

Is this possible?

    That's too bad. That means that when I take this to work and my battery runs out, I have no choice but to plug it in to charge and wait to use it again until it charges up.

    I was hoping that was what the Charger Settings was for. Can you explain the difference between the 3 options? The manual doesn't say much and has it wrong as one is says "Always Play" when the player instead says "Always Pause". I haven't been able to figure out what exactly they do nor the difference.

You cannot play it from the device while it is plugged into the computer - you must use outside software like windows Media Player to read the device and then play the songs from the computer itself

Radio will only play using battery power only It will not play plug into power supply

The charging circuit on many devices typically cuts off the power to most of the device, other than the charging circuit. This is done to ensure that the charging circuit is not used by accident, or otherwise, to try and use the device normally. Doing so will usually burn-out the charging circuit, or can sometimes cause the unit to catch fire. You'd be surprised how many people try this and cause fires without thinking.

Not charging Acer Aspire 5732z, now won't turn on!

If it does not work with the Charger while the battery is out then I would say either your charger is bad, the dc power jack where the charger plugs into the laptop is bad or you've got motherboard issues. Does the charger have a light on it to indicate that it is on when plugged in the wall? Do you see any lights when you plug the charger into the laptop?

Take an ink pen and see if the little pin inside the computer where the charger plugs is loose and moves a bit. If so that is probably your problem. If the pin is tight and the charger works, then you've got motherboard issues.

You can keep the Sansa plugged in without fear of overcharging. The Sansa will play while it is connected to a USB port that is supplying only power, such as a USB charger operating off a car cigarette lighter. It will not play while connected to a computer.

My Archos 604 wifi only play a few minutes after charging.. I have used the dvr, usb and wall charger and nothing helps.. is my battery kaput? also since messing with it the touchscreen isn't working......

it must be the battery..While charging is pilot lamp lightning ?
To verify,just plug the USB cable to see if device battery charging circuit is working..Device should work normally..
If it does,either your battery is dead or its charger needs to be changed.

It dosent even charge!!

Are you sure it's not charging? What makes you think it's not charging? When you plug the USB cord in (and it's attached to the charger or the PC)a screen should appear temporarily. It shows a picture of a PC with a usb cable coming out of it. Are you not even seeing that much? Remember that this is a no-name Chinese player, so don't expect iPod or iRiver quality. I didn't think mine turned on, but that's because the on/off switch was sticky and because you need to press play once or twice after it's turned on to get it to do anything. But so far, mine's working fine.
