    I don't have the audio package...there wasn't a single red 1SS Camaro with a 6spd in all of Arizona when I bought it. And I think you need the 2SS for it anyhow.

    It definitely charges when plugged into a computer, but quite slowly as stated above. You will see "not charging" when the screen is on, but once the screen is off, it will slowly charge. I too, was wondering about that article saying that some motherboard makers had put out updates to make charging possible. Glad to see it does work for those who have the supported ones, now to see if I do.

    I had to flash my BIOS and then run a USB Charge program from my motherboard manufacturer.

    But I am now showing CHARGING during PC connection.

    Nice!

    The link would depend on your motherboard manufacturer.

    yeah i plug mine into my monitor to sync and if I leave it there the screen will eventually turn off and when I go back to it later it has taken some charge...it's just not as fast as the wall outlet.

    Quick update:

    Wall charger 1% per minute
    Updated USB port 1% every 5 minutes (4.8)

    So the wall charger is still MUCH faster. Not sure this update is worth the trouble.
