    Phone will not connect to PC

    When I plug my Droid 3 into the USB cable connected to my PC, it just charges. Doesn't ask if I want to connect as a mass storage device for anything. And no, there is not a USB icon at the top or anywhere on the screen.

    I then installed Motorola's USB drivers and when I plugged it in it said Windows cannot recognize the USB device.

    I THEN tried their developer's USB drivers and that had the same result as their regular drivers.

    What's the deal?

    Which cable are you using.
    People have reported issues when they did not use the genuine cable that came with the phone.
    Also, if you haven't done so already, try different ports on your pc.

    Always start with the basics, let us know.
    Also, what are you running? Stock, rooted, roms, etc

    First I was using my old LG cable but after Googling I had found that bit about using the Motorola Cable. So I found that cord and it had the same results.

    I tried the second USB port on my laptop also.

    It's the Droid 3 with Android 2.3.4. Standard Build from Verizon, nonrooted.

    Yeah reason I posted that is because I've download other drivers before and had same issues as you but as soon as I installed the motohelper, it started to work on my PC.

    Sorry to hear, it's still not working for you.

    No problem, so I guess you haven't seen other similar complaints? Or have any ideas on what to do?

    When you plug it in, and then pulldown the status bar, what options do you get besides "Charge Only"

    Charge Only isn't even there. When I plug it in, the battery icon in the notification bar gets the little lightning bolt to show that it is charging, but that is it. Nothing else comes up or changes at all. Even when the drivers are installed.
