    It does charge, but nothing on my computer pops up.. Like the auto play menu won't come up.. I check the COMPUTER section, on my computer, and it doesn't show that its plugged in. My phone does charge, tho. I'm trying to put music to my phone, from my computer. But I can't, since the Auto Play thing, wont pop up :/ Whats going on?

    If nothing else, you could use a Wi-Fi file manager. I think PG posted one a while back. So you can transfer files over Wi-Fi. I don't remember what it was called and I'm not on the computer so can't link you.

    I found the issue. I guess I was using the wrong USB cable? I was using the USB cable for my blue tooth. I didn't know it mattered o_O I thought as long as it fits, it should work.

    I've found certain cables don't work with certain phones, though I don't know what the difference is either.
