    you should just plug it in and there should be a usb symbol in the notification bar. Just pull that down click on it and it should show you multiple options.

    No nothing was coming up at all. But, I figured it out. I've been using the wrong USB cable and it finally quit out on me. Now it's working. :p ..Restored my phone for no reason. >.>

    I thought maybe that'd fix it. It didn't.

    Yep. It just wasn't showing up period. But I read somewhere if you're not using the charger that comes with the phone, it can eventually stop. And I was either using my OG Droid's one, or my old enV Touch's. After finding my Droid 3's USB cable, it started working again thankfully. I was scared.. I was so pissed lol. But all is good now. :)

    Im having the same problem with the cable that came with it. When i plug it it i have to plug it in again to charge "as the first time it does nothing". Sometime on the second try the pc will make the sound like a device was found, but it never installs a device, and device manager doesnt find it.
