what indicator are you looking at that says it is only 75% charged. When you unplug the device is the battery fully colored? Or are you looking at the properties by right clicking on the device in Windows Explorer.

I noticed this also but figured that since the battery gauge stopped flashing while connected it was fully charged. If it is not flashing and fully colored while charging or connected to the computer that indicates it is fully charged. Not sure why/how windows comes up with 75%.

I had a similar experience. I don't think the clip will charge through usb 1.1, or at least won't charge enough.

I don't think it's an issue of whether it's USB 1.1/2.0, it's whether the port is high-power or low-power. This is mentioned in the Clip's manual. Unfortunately, PC manufacturers usually don't make it clear as to which ports are high-power and which are low-power.

imo, it’s a firmware bug that shows the display at 75%, while in reality the player is fully charged. If you haven’t upgraded the firmware, give that a try, if you’ve already done that try a fw re-install.

Don't know about low/high powered 1.1 USB, but I do know that my clip doesn't seem to charge on any of my 1.1 USB ports. It does fully charge on my HD-DVD player, but that has 2.0 USB.

For some strange reason my Sansa clip will now fully charge off my usb 1.1 ports. I don't know what changed, but something had to have happened.

Whether it's USB 1.1 or USB 2 the output is 5V. Has nothing to do with the data channels. Does it? BTW anyone notice a difference when using an A/C adapter to charge it? When using a modifies USB cable (sans data lines) or an A/C - USB adapter, the Clip acts differently when playing than when it is not plugged in. When plugged in the keypad does not illuminate when you press it. The display comes on, but the blue lighting of the keypad stays dark. That's not a big issue & I guess it will help the unit charge a bit faster when playing 'cause the LEDs are not on, but it is odd. Loving this player!!!
