    Going from Charger to PC

    On the motorola droid, how do you go from wall charging to connecting to the PC through usb? I wanted to put some music on my droid, but the thought of having to dismantle my charging setup and plugging it into the pc, and then going back when I want to charge while the computer is off is rather annoying to me. How do you guys get around this?

    I always just charge through USB. I've only used the wall charger when I'm on the road.

    I just bought a backup charger for $2.99 online. These are generic and you can pick them up a Walmart, TJ MAX, Target for about $7-10. I made the mistake and but my memory card in my PC which created another area on the card for storage and then when I used the USB, it created double.

    Have you had any issues with this charger? I've been reading here that the cheaper ones cause problems. And if it's fine (I'm assuming it is) can you post where you purchased one for that price? I work out of three locations, one with a computer so the usb cable is fine for that. I leave the ac charger at home bedside. But I need a third ac charger and don't want to pay the VZW price if I have a cheaper alternative.

    Can you transfer files with Bluetooth?? I ordered a few BT2.1 USB Dongles in hopes I can do this wirelessly at my home and office.

    can someone confirm/deny that cheaper USB cables can cause damage? The one that came with the droid seems considerably thicker than any USB cables I've used before.

    928Droid, EStrongs File Explorer lets you set up computers on your WiFi network and copy files that way, its here...

    in the marketplace.

    There are plenty of other options as well, look for file transfer or bluetooth file transfer in the market, you'll get plenty of hits.

    DB83, you probably wont have any problems with USB cables, the USB port puts out a much smaller amount of power than the wall charger, I would not use a generic cable with the wall plug for charging, stick with the one that came with the phone for that, thats why its a thicker cable, to handle the extra power from the wall charger.
