    Will it charge when its plugged into the wall? Also, try rebooting then plugging into your computer. That often fixes any problems I have.

    I've found that a lot of times the computer glitches and needs a reboot before it'll recognize the Droid. If that doesn't fix it but it charges fine from the wall charger using the same cable then you may have a problem. Windows 7 has a glitch in it that sometimes causes it to stop recognizing the Droid entirely until something major is done to it, sometimes even requiring a reformat/reinstall.
