1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Hi Everyone -
    I just got a new to me, used DInc2 from (gasp!) ebay. It continues to have a problem: there is no data connection between the USB cable and my laptop. I get a great charge plugged into my computer, just no USB love. Bluetooth, great connection. Syncing with the cloud (google), yup. But no USB.
    I am using a 2011 Macbook Pro (OS 10.7.4) and have android 2.3.4 on the phone.
    Reading through others' troubles linking up DInc2's and Macs, there is lots of talk about getting a 'The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer' message, but i don't even get that. I don't even get the little USB symbol notification icon on my status bar at the top of the phone saying i'm linked up.
    I tried different cords, various different syncing applications (double twist, sync mate, selling media sync), but no one wants to talk to the phone...

    So, is this a hardware issue (the port? The port pins?) or could it be a software issue in the phone? Do you think a factory reset might help (my boyfriend's idea)? I think i'm going outside to get the air compressor in on the action, and i'll do a factory reset, but if any one else has any inspired thoughts, i would LOVE to hear them. (Thankfully, i'm still in my 30 day warrantee period with the ebay seller.)
    Thanks in advance...

    Check the simple stuff first:

    Go to SETTINGS > CONNECT TO PC
    What does it say under DEFAULT CONNECTION TYPE?
    I am betting is says "CHARGE ONLY".
    Click on that and set it to DISK DRIVE.

    Anything else?
    :D
