Heres what lsusb gives:
The two outputs are identical; and according to them the computer is sending 500mA out the port as desired. So, if your 7100 is empty (out of battery), you plug it in and run bcharge -- does it actually charge up after an hour or two? Or, are you saying if you leave it plugged in for 2 hours that nothing happens, you get no charge at all?
According to your lsusb output, the computer is attempting to charge the device -- you sure the 7100 doesn't have some sort of OS flaw with the charging icon?
