I agree with JS
Power is flowing to the BB not from the BB!
I don't see this happening unless the cable is defective in some way
I'm thinking the cable must be defective. He said that it happened twice exactly when he plugged the BB in. Anyway, I talked to him some more and Dell is saying it is a problem related to that particular computer model of theirs, not a widespread thing. They claim there have been multiple reports of the same issue on this particular machine. Anyway, he's going to just sync on his home computer.
Thanks everyone for the comments.
