    FWIW I did a factory restore (After backing up with MyBackup Pro) 3 days ago and it has not rebooted since.

    For some reason I hooked up today 5-6 times with no issue with phone. But now it flashes the prompt window on my PC that would usually let me select "open folder to view files." So I have to go and open it manually, then move files.

    When connected to your PC, pull down the status bar, and select USB connection and you can change it there.

    Also, for those having reboot issues:

    Rooted- in TiBU, scroll down to usb1.1 and wipe data. That should fix the problem.
    Nonrooted- go to settings/applications/manage applications/all tab/scroll down to USB and force stop.

    Hopefully that works. If its already been mentioned then disregard.

    Turn on USB debugging (under Settings>Applications>Developer). It stops the rebooting. My card itself is taking up to 5 minutes to be recognized by the computer, but at least the phone doesn't reboot.

    I believe that was brought up and tried. My debugging is always on.

    I skimmed and didn't see it. It made the difference for me FWIW.

    I had this happen the past few weeks, and finally got it worked out. Start, Run, type in services.msc and hit enter.

    Scroll down to the moto connect service, double click on it, set to disabled, and then hit stop.

    Reboot the PC, and then connect the X. No more reboots.

    Don't remember if I posted this already, but a good work around for this for me as been WiFi File Explorer. The actual writing speeds aren't as fast but overall with the reboot issue, it's faster.

    Potential fix to USB-induced rebooting?

    I have been suffering from this USB-connection-induced rebooting of late. Browsing threads on these forums, I came up with a solution that solved this problem for me. Essentially, I moved all my apps back to the phone (from my SD card) and can no longer induce the reboot.

    My best explanation is that the SD card must be unmounted by Android before it can be exported to the USB-attached OS (Win7 x64 in my case). Unmounting the SD card could crash apps running from SD. Perhaps the straight-to-Droid-logo-restart is simply the way this crash is handled.

    I posted essentially everything I know and guess about this problem in this thread. Have a look if interested. I hope this helps someone. Thanks!

    For me though, its random. Sometimes while transferring files (testing of theme files I make, etc) it reconnects/mounts just fine. No reboot. Other times, does exactly like you all are explaining.
    Haven't been able to pinpoint anything. I've run 3 different ROMs, stock, themes, the works. And it does it in every situation. It sounds like a driver issue, but I doubt its that.
    Definitely a Motorola software issue as I never encountered this prior to the last update.

    What is the benefit of always being in debugging mode?

    My phone seems to do a spontaneous reboot once or twice a day, usually when it is just sitting there not plugged into anything. I see the Droid "Eye" glowing on the screen and see it booting back up.

    No apparent reason. The phone is running the latest Verizon OS, it is rooted but the only "hack" is the ADW Launcher EX app. I am overclocked to 1.1Ghz, so I was thinking that perhaps it was that, but if there is a wide range of devices with the same problem, many of them unrooted stock phones, then it would appear to be OS related.

    It isn't the overclocking in my case. I think that it is the ADW Launcher EX. The reboots started when I installed that.

    I set my Droid X back to stock speeds and voltage, and then I uninstalled the DX overclocking utility.

    ANd as the phone was just sitting here on the coffee table, it spontaneously rebooted itself.

    I don't think it ever did that before installing ADW. I will back up all my ADW settings and uninstall that, and then see if it stops doing it.
