I don't know anything about Windows, but -- the problem with not
charging on dumb cords is that the NEO is polite about needing to
handshake, and being able to request 500mA, before it will draw
500mA.  If the device on the other end doesn't even do that, the NEO
will only draw 100mA which isn't enough (the fast_cccv parameter
somebody else mentioned will, apparently, force it to draw lots of
power anyway).
