Currently, if you want to charge the player using a USB cable, you have to hold the rec button while inserting the cable. Since 2 August though (JdGordon's commit - use the rec button to get to the rec screen) while you 're doing this you get to the recording screen as well.

Since it sounds logical to use the rec button to enter recording screen, I think a different button should be used for entering USB charging mode.

A proposition would be the play button, since it's the only one that it's not mapped (long-press) in file browser, menu and wps as well.

Mind also that the same problem exists when reseting settings (hold rec on boot)
This task depends upon

I think the hold switch should be used on all targets. using hold means we wont ever have annoying screen changes when we just want to use usb power.

One for vote for the hold switch (on all targets that have one)
