    welllll... i just plugged my phone into my PC to work on my phone book and resync it and for some reason my PC doesn't see the phone and my phone doesn't see the PC.

    yes, i DO have the HTC Sync software installed on my pc and i have successfully linked them before.. but neither my phone OR my pc can find each other.

    when i first plug the phone to the PC i get a menu on the phone asking me if i want to "charge only" or "HTC Sync Contacts and Calendar" or if i want to use my phone as a web router. I selected the "HTC Sync" because that is the one that applies but i have also tried a couple of others hoping it might help them find each other.. but it says open the HTC sync software on the PC before connecting the phone and it IS open!!

    does anyone know why or what my problem might be?

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    Sometimes changing to a different USB port will help... other times rebooting the PC and/or phone can also help...
