I just recently purchased a droid, and tried to connect it to my PC. I have an
asus P5NQL pro mobo and just a regular 4gig setup nothing special 2.66ghz
core2duo proc. anyway, so connecting to USB does nothing, the notification area of my phone is blank, the described action of the USB connected showing there I do not get.

No USB 'connected' beep from the computer absolutely nothing. I've already reinstalled Vista to correct any potential driver issues, i've downloaded motorola's specific USB drivers even to no effect.

I'm not sure where to go from here in terms of trouble shooting this issue, when I connect it to a mac it works perfectly, the notification area shows it connected and will allow you to mount the SD to the mac.

I went to verizon as well to test it on their machine, functions just fine. Any help would be much appreciated. I love the phone otherwise.
