    My Computer Can't Recognize my Samsung Galaxy Nexus Anymore

    I've always dowloaded my pictures and videos from my phone to my computer every month so that I dont have to worry about loosing my photos and such.
    Well one day when I was planning to download my pictures my computer didnt recognize the dvice anymore. And my phone didnt have any USB connect icon that it had when I connected it.
    I've been reading on all types of forums and help sites but I just dont understand whats going on and how to fix it. It has no problems charging with the computer. I dont know if its something I clicked or what but its not working.
    Can anyone help? And my computer is Windows Vista if that helps.

    Thanks.

    Same with me, I can plug my galaxy tab into the computer or my girlfriends Samsung phone and they will install and auto play will pop right up on windows 7. But if I plug my nexus into any port it is not recognized. I don't understand, it charges, at first I was thinking I may need to open it up and replace a part or something but I see many forum entries with this problem. I'm wondering if it is the data cable. This has happened before but it wasn't that it wasn't recognized but it didn't pop up with auto play options until about a half hour later.

    Do you still.have the cable that came.with it? Because I had the same thing happen to me. And how I fixed it:

    I lost my cable that came with the phone. So I got a compatible.one from.a.VZW store. Then 2 months later, my computer wouldn't recognkze my G-Nex. It would give me a pop up which I can't remember what it said. But something along the lines of ''unrecognkzed device'' or ''there was a problem installing the drivers.'' so I redownloaded the drivers. Same problem. Then I plugged it into another computer, and wouldn't recognize it ln that one, either. So I ruled.out my computer. Back to VZW. The tech hooked his G-Nex up.and it worked for him. And then stopped. So he gave me another one, and it worked.

    So, somehow static electricity or something shorted or opened something in the line. Static electricity (when you can feel it and see it arc is around at least 1,000 volts, believe it or not.)
