I haven't installed my mini 0806 yet. My car as USB connections from the factory, and today just to check, I plugged the 0806 in with the cable that came with it and got a blue screen that said "USB connected" and couldn't get any other screen. (I haven't tried it with the supplied power cord yet, since I'll have to put in another power port for it and I was hoping I'd be able to make it work with one of the already-there USB ports) When I plug it in with that cord to my computer, I get the same screen. Using a cable attached to a charger (for my tablet) I get the same thing when plugged in to the computer, but if plugged into the wall the picture starts. What's going on?

plug it in using the supplied power cord, connecting to a PC or your car where there are active data pins in the USB won't work, your in car USB port is not suitable for powering this camera anyway
