    i have a 700p and i am trying to charge my 700p with my office's desktop computer's usb port

    i do not have admin rights on this win2000 machine and will not be able to get admin rights to install 700p on this machine - i do not want to sync- i just want to use the usb port to charge

    when i plug the usb charge cable and the 700p i get a loop "finding new hardware- which fails and starts all over again" once again i do not want to install all i want to do is charge

    i was able to do this w/ my old t600 but something is diff't w/ the700. is it a windows problem? is it something w/the 700p?

    any guidance would be appreciated

    Curious about this as well...

    i've had the same issue on my home desktop, which does not have the palm desktop software installed (i sync my 700p to my laptop which does have it installed). I think having the software installed is a requirement for the 700p to be recognized and thus being able to be charged.

    Hmm, that seems unlikely. The USB port shoves 5 volts down the line no matter what software or device is involved. I'll try connecting my 700P to a machine w/o Palm software loaded and see what happens.
