Default Can you play the s50 while it's plugged into the computer?

I plugged my s50 into my laptop usb for the first time (I always use my desktop for programming my s50) and I got some sort of can not recognize error and It worked perfect. While I was surfing on my laptop, my s50 was charging and I was listening to music on it. I unplugged my s50 for a few minutes and when I came back and plugged it in, the computer found new drive etc. and all my s50 says is do not disconnect. I now can't get it to play while its charging on the usb. I tried to do the safe disconnect but everytime I try to play something it says to disconnect the cable.

Any ideas?

It sounds like the first time you connected it to the PC, it didn't recognize it as a drive so you weren't really connected to the PC. Normally, it won't play when connected via USB, it goes into data mode. You can use the AC adapter and plug the USB into that to charge and listen. Just a note for that setup, you may not get your My Channels...

The joys of the S50...

Thanks for the help. It's too bad, because the first time I plugged it in to the computer it was charging and playing.

Load the software on your laptop.
Connect the S50
Open MMS and eject your S50

Your S50 should no longer say "Do Not Dissconnect"

Now it should continue to charge and play.

No luck. once it ejects the s50 and I click on playlist , it says cable disconnect and I can't do anything until I disconnect the cable from the s50. Any other ideas
thanks

Default

If you have the Home Dock, I know you can do this because my Home Dock was always connected to my Computer at work and I used to listen at the same time. There is a Sync Button on the Home dock to make the connection.
