    Bought mine from the o2 shop when I got the phone m8 and its fine, its a Nokia lead but I think there standard mini usb now so dont think it matters about the make.

    Have you got anything else you can plug in the car to see that the sockets not gone ?

    The X10 (and many other new phones like all Nokia) requires the data cables D+ and D- to be shorted together. You can easily modify your charger or your cable. My charger had D+ and D- connected to GND and VCC via resistors. They had to be removed before it worked properly.
