    Sorry if this question may have been answered in a different thread but I don't really have enough time right now to look it up.
    After I rooted my Captivate, it could still pick up the USB connection to the computer. A little while later it stopped showing the USB symbol and did not recognize the connection at all.
    I would really want to know if there is a way to fix this.
    Thank you for taking the time to respond to my issue.

    It charges when connected to the computer and wall charger yes.
    I have plugged it into a different computer and it still does not recognize the USB.
    I have plugged other devices into the USB drive of the computer and they work fine =/

    you must go into settings > applications > USB settings and select "Ask on Connection"
    Then plug it in, select Mass Storage.
    Then you will get the prompt to mount USB.

    I had the same issue
