Hi all. I just got a Dell DJ Ditty. 512 MB + FM, for $39 plus tax, if applicable. They are still available if anyone is interested. http://www.dell.com/content/products...s=19l=en&s=dhs It turns out that the Ditty is a high speed USB device, and my Dell 4400 computer does not have a high speed USB port. I got a message that says: "The device will function at reduced speed...." I am charging the Ditty and the instructions call for a 2.5 hour period. I would much appreciate it if anyone can answer my questions. 1) Does the computer have to be turned on for the USB port to be "active" for me to charge the Ditty, or is the USB port active even with the computer is turned off? 2) Given the "reduced speed", should I charge the Ditty for more than 2.5 hours. For example, should I charge it for 5 hours instead of 2.5 hours? 3) Are there any other aspects of this that I should be aware of? Thanks again for any help you can provide.
