I seem to have a semi common problem with the droid. I plug it in via usb, and the notification is not there and windows tells me the usb device is not recognized and that it has malfunctioned.
I've tried the same phone and usb cable on three different computers. It works perfectly fine on one and i get errors on the other two.
On one of the computers that my phone wont connect to anymore, the "usb connected" and "usb debugging" icons show up as the computer boots between bios and the windows screen.
The only difference other than hardware on the machines that i know of, is the machine that my phone/cable still works with, I had never connected my phone to prior to upgrading to froyo OTA. All computers are running windows XP service pack 2.
Now some things make me think it isn't a froyo issue, One of the machines that doesnt recognize the droid now I had connected to with froyo and used for about a day and a half till it all of a sudden quit connecting/notifying me.
I'd take my phone in and complain, but the fact that my phone works fine on one computer makes me believe it isn't the phone.
I've been searching high and low for an answer on the internet. Ive done everything from messing with usb debugging, defragging my hard drive, installing another microsd card, messing with removing devices in the windows device manager and nothing. Anyone with an answer or an educated guess would be greatly appreciated.
