Okay, today when I plugged my phone into the computer through a USB cord it did not say anything on the phone's screen such as "connected". All it say's is that the battery is charging.

Do anyone know what the problem is?

Did you tried to go to "my computer", and look for your phone there? You should see your phone in drive E or F. Click on it. Follow instructions.
Open and run cell phone PC suite software to start transferring data from your cell phone.

Actually, it use to work like that with no problem, but yesterday when I plugged the phone in to the computer all the phone said was that it's charging.

And I tried to find drive E and F but it's nowhere in "my computer".

Something to check is the connector ports in the phone and the cable. From time to time, dust and dirt will collect and disable the connection. Gently try to clean the connections and see if that resolves the issue. Good luck.

Have you changed out the SD card by any chance to a higher capacity card (8GB+?)
Have you tried other ports on the PC? Do you get the driver installation wizard etc?

There is a good chance that the SD card is not seated in to the slot. Try popping that SD card out and cleaning off the contacts.

Sometimes a simple reboot without the USB cord plugged might help as well.

Could be either a computer infection or a deleted file that controls the connection.
