    Hi Dark Heart, and welcome to the forum.

    I'm not familiar with the specific ROM you're working with, but I've seen on other ROMs where these is a setting along the lines of "when I plug in the phone to a PC, set it to charge only, and never ask me again".
    Check the settings, and if there is a menu under settings that are ROM specific, check there first. Look for something like 'default action when plugged in to PC'.
    I realize that's all very vague, but it's the best I can do without being more familiar with the ROM. :)

    I have never seen the pop up you are referring to when plugging my rooted RAZR into my PC but there is a notification item on my phone called "USB connection" that I can select and choose one of 4 different USB modes:

    1. PC Mode
    2. Windows Media Sync
    3. USB Mass Storage
    4. Charge Only

    Choose USB mass storage. The PC will then see your phone as a USB drive. Note that when inhis mode some apps on the phone may not work because the PC has 'control' of it's storage.

    Same thing happened to me last week, I had to get a new usb cable from Verizon, not the little short one they sell but the long one made for v-cast.

    I never got the popup either. Always have to go into notifications and open the window myself.

    That's a good point. I've never seen a popup on this phone like I have on others. There is just a notification that says 'USB connection', pull down the notification bar, press the USB notification and then the choices are displayed.

    It doesn't show up in the notification drop down either. So i can't select out of charge only... I've searched the settings looking for some other way but I couldn't find anything. I'm not sure what rom I used but I will find out asap

    If yo uare using a 3rd party ROM, it maybe the ROM's fault then.
