    Droid doesn't even notice when connected to computer

    So I hate having to ask for help, but im at a dead end here.

    I used to use a Windows 7 64 bit RC, but that expired and I had to install a retail copy. So I did. Droid wise before everything was running great. USB to mount, blah blah, it all worked.

    So after reinstalling windows 7 and putting in the drivers for droid, I put my phone on the usb cable and went to bed, to find my droid dead in the morning. After recharging on the actual power cable I found out my droid doesnít see that its connected to my computer at all. Im using Droidmod. So i restore back to right after I rooted and my droid works fine, computer seeís it, charges it, lets me mount. If I flash any rom, it goes back to not being able to talk to my computer.

    The only way I can get it to work is if I enable usb debugging. Then my computer seesís it just fine. I hate having to enable that just to connect to my computer when I never had to before.

    There is a USB Composite driver that keeps failing to install when I donít have usb debugging on, but for the life me I canít get any drivers to install there. I even extracted them out of the moto msi.

    I just donít understand why pre rom installs my computer will see it and post rom installs it no longer does. Any help would be sooo great. Thank you.

    Not that I have any talk ideas what I am taking about here, but you have to consider they are meeting with all the system files.

    Is it all roms? Or just droidmod? did you install the usb drivers from moto website?

    I am having this issue with my Droid running Droidmod. My phone is not recognized on Win 7 64bit. My dad's Droid connects no problem. Mind connected pre Droidmod and it still connects to my Win XP laptop. You mentioned SDK files and I don't understand what those are. Can you help please?

    The droid actually has drivers, charging and connection drivers.

    I'm not sure what happens to them when we root the phone, but sometimes they don't recognize the phone correctly.

    Try this page: USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola USA

    Thanks, I had already tried that but it didn't help. I mean, I loaded those on the computer. They don't go on the phone do they? I feel pretty ignorant right now. I can usually figure these things out but I'm pretty baffled.

    Don't feel ignorant you did the right thing.

    Yes they go on the comp, there is an issue with win 7, but I never looked into it because I never experienced a problem.

    People report the same as you, one phone will work, one won't. Try a google search, it might help a bit more than me at this point, lol
