    Oooooh....that's not good and also not what I expected you to say....lol

    People were having trouble with W7 and I did too one time but it just stopped suddenly and everything was fine

    But have you tried a battery pull or rebooting your phone?

    WAY too many variables here.

    First makes sure you USB port is good by plugging something else into it (jumpdrive or other USB Flash drive).

    If that works check your cable. See if you have something else that has a Micro USB connection and try to plug that in.

    If that comes back with negative results, try another MicroUSB cable and with your droid.

    If thats negative come back and see us.

    This happened to me too, and that's why I went with BB 0.7.4

    The very first time I plugged the phone to the computer it worked. The next time it didn't.

    Well now we know it's software problem and not a hardware problem (on the host computer end).

    Plug in your droid to your computer and then open up device manager (I am assuming you are using Windows XP or later) in windows and see if your droid in there under one of the USB hosts.

    If it is check the driver under properties.

    If it's not showing up I personally would go back to stock to see if that works and then reflash back to the most current sholesmod (2.0.5 was just released).

    It sounds like you have already done a battery pull (with the power on) and a reboot. That personally clears up 99% of my problems.

    no i was just letting you know that i checked both the usb cable and the usb port on my computer to make sure that wasnt the problem and both the cable and the usb port are fine and. My computer recognizes the phone but the phone doesnt recognize the computer.

    This just occurred to me...

    Does it show your phone charging when you have it hooked up to the computer? If not it COULD (big maybe here) be a hardware problem on your phone. But my first suggestion is to reflash back to stock.

    Sounds like something got mixed up in the midst of you rooting, Make sure you cut no corners, understand completely what your doing every step and follow the directions 120%. Find another ROM and use that to see if it works. If it does then you know its not your technique in rooting, if it doesn't then you know your doing something wrong. i don't use any sholds ROM so i cant talk to say its sholds fault(Which i kinda doubt). But my theory is worth a try.
