Are you sure your USB port even has power ("self-powered")? Also an USB
port can be a "computer" port (delivers 100mA) or a "hub" port (delivers
500 mA). In the iRiver firmware you can select what type of port you are
connecting to.

Having said this, charging over USB is really slow (especially using
100mA). You'd better use the supplied power adapter.
