    Idk what the problem is. My Razr used to connect but at some point a couple months ago, my PC hasnt been able to detect my phone, which means i can't enter USB mass storage mode when i hook it up. It actually doesn't even charge anymore either. 15% for like 45 mins when I tried. I can only charge it on the wall.

    I've tried restarting my phone while it was on the cable, as well as my pc, then i tried restartin both non-connected. i tried uninstalling drivers but nothing changed. I dont have any task-killers or battery savers so thats out the picture.

    This is the same cable that it came with out of the box. I'm running Windows 7.

    Also, i cant take screen caps of my phone. The button combo was Pwr+Vdown right?

    thanks for all your guys input. Im tired of having to take of the droid otterbox case everytime i want to put a song onto my phone.:mad:

    Make sure your using the usb cable the phone came with. They are NOT all the same. Just because it fits doesnt mean it is the right one. I had the same issue when I tried to use my Samsung usb cable.

    +1 on this. I also found the phone does funky things if you try using it while plugged in using certain non-Motorola cables/power cords. Freaked me out at first.

    As I said this is the very same cable I got with my phone. I haven't bought any aftermarket cables and I have never replaced my phone or cable. Same cable out of the box as I said in my post. Guess I'll just go bug the people at the vzw store for a new one?
