K20D, does the battery charge while in USB mode? I tried reading the mini bible manual but fell asleep during the first few pages!

Thanks guys!

The camera isn't able to charge the battery at all - you need to use the battery charger for that. So, no it can't charge the battery while it's hooked up to a computer. I don't think I've ever read about how the camera functions when hooked up to a computer, but I always thought it couldn't use the power from the USB hook-up (doesn't work like an iPod or some external hard drives) - it requires a battery or other power source.
