    Does it show it is charging, but shows up as unknown device? If yes, then charging port. It is #1 problem on Evos.
    If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?

    I had this problem with mine. Try holding up or down on the part that's plugged into the port. You may have to do it kinda hard then hold it like that till your done doing whatever.

    Try another USB cable?

    AFAIK if a few of the pins are damaged it MAY charge but it won't connect to the computer..

    First thing I'd try is another cable though,.

    Yeah probably the pin that is responsible for pc connection is totally broken. I think it is the last one from the left. Just buy a new charging port and fix it. Or pay $45 and get it done. You are flashing it yourself, so $45 is saved already.

    That's not too bad, even though the prices for evos have been going down this month.
