Default No longer getting usb connected notification

My hero has stopped giving me the notification to connect to any pc, it still charges, but I can't access my files. It's been happening for a few months, it worked ok for the first 6 months I had the phone, I've tried numerous PCs and cables, but nothing has worked. I'm currently stuck on v1.5 of Android.
I've contacted Orange, but they've just passed me on to HTC, can anyone help before I just give up and buy an iphone?!

I'm having the exact same problem. Has anyone found a solution? Also, when I remove headphones from the device it doesn't update; it keeps thinking they're still plugged in until I turn the unit off and on again.

If this is a hardware issue then they really need to sort out their sockets!

I had the same problem: charging but no other USB functionality. The cause was dirty contacts. I fixed it by putting a few drops of iso-propyl alcohol in the connector, and then connecting and disconnecting the USB lead several times.

I was having trouble with mine since the 2.1 update but just fixed it now by uninstalling and reinstalling HTC Sync. It installed with no issues and each connection type works including the internet sharing which is what I'm using now as I type this on my laptop that is connected to internet through the Hero. Yay... now I can get rid of EasyTether which I loved (wish I wouldn't have upgraded that which cost me $10 though) Oh well I'm still happy

In my nexus 7 I could fix it by

Go to Settings -> Storage -> click on menu (3 dots at top right) -> USB Computer connection -> Check the option, Media Device (MTP)

Enjoy
