Yes I've found the same thing on a Win7(32) system _without_ Sony library installed. I assumed it was a cable fault until I noticed that on an XP system using the same cable but with Sony library installed it instantly goes straight to "Charging Battery" never 'oscillating' as you put it.
So I guess it must be a handshaking issue of some sort - just ever so slightly irritating!
I do question the wisdom of using the micro USB port for charging, the longevity of it must be questionable over the round plug on the 505.
