Make sure your USB Cable is a good one. Had a similar issue a while back, USB just quit being recognized. Turned out my cable had gone bad. They wear out like anything else. Also, beware of knock off USB Cables.

You should be able to find the USB Cable you need here in the states, or online. Unless it's something really strange. The cacle will still charge the device, because that does not put much demand on the cable. But if it's transfering data, and it's frayed, or damaged in anyway it will not work.

Are you sure? I did a search for your device last night. Looked at pics, and specs. Looks like it uses a standard mini USB data Cable.

yup it needed a usb cable with 20 pins which is very hard to find here in the Philippines because most phones use here are only the popular ones which has only less than 20 pins in the teeth of the usb cable

Then it's most likely better to just get it from the manufacturer.
