Default Battery doesn't charge really w/USB to computer

I rooted my Moto Droid the other day to 2.2. Now when I plug it into my computer, it doesn't seem to charge. Yesterday I plugged it into my netbook and work desktop and it was at 50%. Left it there for a while, came back and was still at 50%. Tried it while mounted and not mounted. Yet, I Plug it into CLA and Home dock all the time and charges fine. Any ideas?

Usb is a slow charging method, usually I only charge off usb when then battery is really low and has to be trickle charged, otherwise use AC

Yeah USB is slower, but it helps if you turn off the screen and don't use the phone while it is charging too.

I do not even get it to charge. It shows discharging when it's plugged in with the USB cable. It charges on my Win7 Laptop but on my XP laptop is does not work. I have tried the drivers from Motorola but nothing changes.

btw: What does rooting mean? I am completely new to this. I went from a Palm running windows Mobile to Droid.

Are you using the factory provided cable or a third party one?

Rooting means get super user permissions. Once you root you can install custom roms. you are already in the root section posting, read some of the topics and see the power of root.

If your XP laptop is fairly old, it could just be that the USB ports don't supply enough power to actually charge it, but will still work fine for data transfer. I know on our Gateway laptop, only certain ports will actually charge our phones.

This^ Also on some newer laptops there may still only be one 'charging' usb port. It still charges much slower than through a wall charger.
