    I lost my original microUSB cable that came with my Samsung Galaxy, and I went and bought a new one.

    But, it seems like data doesn't sleep to work with this cable? Is that possible?

    The phone is charging though, but I don't see a new drive popping up in my computer like usual, and I don't see the option of mounting the SD card on my phone..

    Do I need a special kind of cable??

    a good quality one and not a cheep one
    i bought an after market cable and i couldnt do fastboot and also data transfer kept bombing our mid file.
    I then used my blackberry 9700 cable (official) which works perfectly fine with it.

    Some cables out there (like the stupid Rocketfish one I bought @ BB) will only charge the phone. Apparently they don't have all the pins/leads necessary to make a data connection.

    At least the cable I bought was full size USB-B to Mini-USB and it came with a Mini to Micro adapter. So I kept the adapter which had all the pins and chucked the cable which didn't.
