    I'm confused... The HD2 can be charged whilst attached to the PC. Why would you disconnect & then charge seperately? If you have the USB charging enabled; then you will burn out the battery by charging it too much. You should always wait for the device to die off before charging {this is true of ALL rechargable electronics}.
    There are a few things that could be an issue. There are registry settings that enable/disable USB & AC charging ability. You can disable the USB charge thru the Power control panel as well. Try this:
    1} remove battery & leave out for 5 Minutes
    2} reinstall the battery; but do not turn the device on.
    3} Hook up charger with device turned off {try the wall charger 1st & then try the PC USB}
    If the orange LED appears; then you are charging. If the device is not charging; then I recommend contacting your carrier, or HTC for service.

    U can turn off the charging effect when u plug it into a computer, as i did when i got it. For the reason not to fuck up the battery when putting in new songs etc. But i'll try, thx for the tip =)

    I know you can turn it off; I had stated that earlier. How often do you connect to the PC that you need the power disabled? Personally I only connect my device to one of my PCs when it needs to be recharged. This way I am killing two birds with one stone. I usually tether it to my laptop & use the Internet Sharing feature when I do. Of course, charging thru USB does take a lil' longer as the USB port only puts out half the amperage of the wall charger. But, it does not harm the battery to use the USB charging function instead of the Wall charger.

    You don't have to connect the device to the PC to copy over songs & such. Personally I just take the mem card out, place it in my laptop or desktop {using an SD adapter}, & copy the music &/or installers that I want. The only thing with this is you can't Sync your music or data with the PC thru the memory card. But since I never Sync my device; it's not nessecary for me {I perform backups on my memory card so I don't need to sync}. If syncing is really important to you; then you can also connect to ActiveSync via the built-in Bluetooth. But your PC will need a bluetooth module for this to work.

    The problem you had may have been that the battery was running too hot as well. HTC devices have a temp probe & the charger will shut off automatically if the battery or device reaches a certain temperature. This happened quite often with my Diamond; but I found that the HD2 runs much cooler then the Diamond & haven't experianced this issue as of yet.

    Good luck with getting it fixed up. Have you tried another USB cable with it? It could be possible that the cable has a broken wire. It could be that the USB connector in the device is damaged as well. This happens on occasion & HTC can definately get it fixed for you. Again good luck with getting it repaired; especially in a timely fashion.
