    I'm using the Seidio desktop cradle, and for the most part am very happy with it. Here's my question: For the life of me, I can't mount my Droid as a USB device when it's on the cradle. When I use the pull-down menu and select "USB Connected", nothing happens. As soon as I take the cable off the back of the dock and plug it directly into the phone, I'm able to mount it as a USB device.

    Is this normal behavior, or do I have a faulty dock?

    I don't have a seidio to check for you, but on the stock desktop cradle, I move from wall charger to my usb hub all the time and can mount it with no problems.

    All the cradle is is just a port to it, IMO it should work fine, is it possible for you to exchange it at this time?

    After further review, it looks like the cradle is fine. My problem was a flaky USB hub.
