    Ok so, here it goes. I have been mounting my phone with my pc for quite awhile, then one day, it decided to be difficult. At first it took a couple, replugs to get it to recognize the SD card. Then, It stopped recognizing it at all. Depending on what USB port I use, I get different results from I/O error, to device not recognized.

    Things I have tried:
    -Every driver known to mankind.
    -Plugging in every single usb port on the computer (including mobo)
    -Disconnecting every usb device except for the phone
    -Formatting the SD card (lost my photos :( forgot they were on there)
    -Only used STOCK cable.

    I'm out of ideas, and sprint claims this is not a problem with the phone on all the forum posts I've seen with similar problems. Has anyone actually found a solution for this other than thinking plugging it in the back of the computer actually fixes anything?

    I would suggest trying another cable.

    I agree. There are better cables than Samsung's stock.

    My stock cable works with most of the computers I connect to,. but it would not work with one cranky XP computer I sometimes use no matter what USB port I tried. I bought a short cable from monoprice.com, with gold-plated contacts and a ferrite core. Reasonably priced and it works on that system perfectly.

    I guess I will try that, thanks for the replies. What kind of end connection is it to the phone?

    I had that problem once. I rebooted both my phone and computer and everything worked.

    It still happens occasionally but a reboot cures it.

    Might not be the same cure you need, but it wouldn't hurt.

    I have been having a similar problem. It was driving me crazy. One computer worked, one didn't, reinstalled drivers, switched USB ports, the whole works. It was something in the cable. I got it working by using a different cable. Maybe a shorter one works better?
