Hi,

I have a xacti CG6 which i find great. On feature that i've been using is the webcam. As a webcam, it's actually pretty good i find.

Anyway, one problem I have is that when i connect the USB cable, and use the camera as a webcam, the power is exclusively taken from the battery.

This means that even though the camera is connected to the computer, it shuts down as soon as the battery wears out. This is very annoying because you have to wait til the battery recharges before you can use the webcam function again.

Has anyone else noticed this? is there a way to tell it to take the power from the computer instead of from the battery? (or even better to be able to use the webcam function AND charge the battery at the same time).

Thanks!
