    Is anyone else able to charge their RMHD from a USB port? When I plug it in to my laptop it connects as USB mass storage but doesn't charge. I've tried two different laptops and USB cables with the same results.

    Works fine for mine, regardless of cable or PC. (windows 7 on both machines)

    most new laptop usb ports can't power much more than a mouse these days, it's probably output of the port.

    Download drivers, try all the ports. If not, it's probably something to discuss with the laptop maker.

    and if it does charge, keep in mind that it'll take about 2-3x LONGER to charge than using the wall outlet.

    Just want to report that USB charging works now after the update to JB. I tried it again using the exact same laptops and usb cables as I tried before. Weird...
