Kindle 3 - reading while charging ?

Hi All
I thought we could read on the Kindle while it's charging using USB connected to PC. It says I should eject it from my computer, but nothing changes when i Stop the USB device. I'm using Windows Vista 64.
Just wondering.

HOW embarassing.

For Windows 7 users

Actually, it's not so obvious and no reason to make fun of those who don't know. Especially that in case of Windows 7 users simple ejecting with the safe device eject mode DOES NOT work. For those on 7 follow this path:
- open Windows Explorer window and right click on the device’s name,
- Select 'eject' from the newly opened menu and that’s it.
Safe ejection won't help - the welcome or support screen will be there all the time and you won't be able to read.
Enjoy!

Yes, it's not at ALL obvious. I only found out about it by reading this forum, too .

So did I. I couldn't work out why I could eject via safe ejection whilst connected to my XP laptop but not from my laptop which runs vista. Then I looked on this website and realised what I had to do differently.

Same here. It was kinda frustrating when I was doing a charge at work, and it wouldn't let me read on break.

Thanks MobileRead!

I was confused by this under Linux. I had figured unmounting the filesystem would have sufficed, but you need to actually eject the device as well.

Doing that still doesn't work for me. I don't really mind, though.

Hooray! It worked for me too. I just thought that the instruction book had got it wrong.

Kaymully you've missed out the [ at the start of "QUOTE=JoAnn77PL" but thanks very much for the re-post, I tried doing this just recently and wondered why it didn't work. Now I know
