Why won't my device connect to my computer?
flowergardener

I've always been able to plug my phone into my computer to access photos, etc.  Suddenly my phone is not recognized on my computer or my laptop....it says usb malfunction...not recognizable.  I haven't done anything different to my phone or either of my computers.  I am using the same cable and we've tried another cable as well as my laptop.

Have you ensured it is listed as a Mass Storage Device when you connect the USB cable? Do you have the latest Motorola drivers loaded on your computer. Did you accept the Jan 10 OS update? Those are the things that come to mind.
