    Ah, this might be a shot in the dark as I've not done any installing of custom roms yet (although I've read my fair share of threads on how to do...)

    however, one thing that has come up in many of the threads that I've read, check that USB debugging is set: press menu/settings/applications/development then select USB debugging.

    See if that helps!

    Ah, pooh! I've just started on the long path to installing a custom rom so I'll have to pass this over to someone more knowledgeable. Sorry man, hope you get it sorted soon!
