    I cannot get my Captivate to connect to my laptop. I plugged in the usb cable and nothing comes up. No option for mass storage, no usb symbol on notifications, no nothing. My phone is charging though so I know it's not the cable. Please help. :thinking:

    Try a different USB port on your computer.

    Try a different cable. Just because a cable will charge the phone does not mean that it will work as a data cable. I (and a lot of other people) have had this problem too. Search this forum and you will see quite a bit of threads posted about this problem.
