    I havent plugged my phone into the computer for a while so I dont know when this issue started... but for some reason my samsung Focus will not be detected by any of my PCs. (all on windows 7)

    It doesnt show up in device manager, my computer or the zune software. I tried power cycle and also tried the 'reset' option which deleted my phone and started over.

    I am using the cable that came with the phone.

    Any other ideas?

    have you tried a different USB port on the same PC? I was having problems with USB ports on my PC, but since I got a new mother board, i have only used 1 specific port for my focus and its working very well

    you could also try to un-install the USB drivers and let the windows reinstall them, then hook the phone back up

    I did manage to dig up another cable and that works. Odd thing is, the original cable used to work fine, and still works fine for another phone we have.
