Looks off to me.  It looks like it goes black, then the backlight
goes off.

Can't say for sure.  It worked on Sunday.  It was fully charged before
the drive started.  I have a charger in the car I plug it in over night
in the car.

No progress bar.  

If it's the charger I'll know tomorrow.

Does not loop.  It does nothing until the next time the power button
is pressed.  It does the exact same thing each time the power button
is pressed.  If you hold it on, it will loop through the same sequence
of events I described.

It does not respond as a USB storage device.
