My Sony PRS-600 is refusing to charge from my computer. Have tried all (8) USB ports to no avail.
Before I take it back, has anyone else had this problem and was it 'curable'?

I haven't personally had this issue but I've read enough to know that sometimes charging from USB can be an issue for a number of reasons including the fact that some computers go into a sleep mode and will not charge when this happens or because of faulty / unstable USB connections.
Have you a different computer that you can try?
I would also really recommend a wall charger for the Sony - you can get a psp charger which people here have mentioned that they use with success.

Funnily enough I was just charging my own 600 when I read this. I had not charged for a bit and it was a good 10 minutes before it finally plopped on. I think sometimes you have to be patient and wait. I always switch right off as well to save on battery life.

Strongly recommend you get a cheap PSP wall charger. It's far more reliable and faster than trying to charge via USB.
