However, since the OS had either gone to sleep or shut down or was frozen, my hitting the enter button was not registering with the reader. That's my guess (although I did not get asked whether I wanted to charge or copy when I plugged in teh reader to my phone's USB charger.
When I plug in the USB Charger, the EZ Reader detects it is a charger (not a computer) and the battery indicator switches to a charging icon and the orange light flashes.
I have seen reports with other devices that USB charging does not work with a completely flat battery, so perhaps this is the case here (which is a problem when USB is the only option).
