My laptop (and other computers I've tried) stopped seeing the note.
When I plug it in it only says charging but I don't see a new device added on Windows.
ADB says waiting for device. If i disable usb debugging a message about MTP comes up upon connection but I don't see any drives mapped in windows at all. Device manager doesn't show any android or untecognized devices.
I tried uninstalling samsung usb drivers and reinstalling them. Nothing helps. I am starting to think I have a hw issue. Anything else you can think of friends?

Forgot to mention. I am back on Rocket ROM v22.
The plan is to full wipe and install ROCKET V23 today and see if it helps.

#$%^@! Samsung USB drivers will be the death of us all.

I experienced something similar the other day: had the standalone drivers installed which worked well, then suddenly stopped for reasons known only to CIA and KGB, I suppose.

This is what helped:

1. uninstalled drivers
2. installed fresh Kies *yecch*

update : things aren't looking good.
I did a full wipe, tried a different kernel and installed KIES.
Nothing helps, the comp doesn't even make that sound when a new usb is plugged in so it doesn't even try to look for drivers or mount it.

Is it really HW issue or can i still try anything ?

Im pretty sure you already tried it but...
I had such a problem once. Turned out that my USB cable was broken, it could only charge but data-lines were inactive. I have no idea if Note uses the same line for both charging and data sync, but maybe it's not the phone - but the cable ?

thanks mate, tried two different cables.
Went to another comp now, which didn't have any samsung **** installed on it, upon first connection it tried installing the drivers and failed (obviously). I then installed samsung usb drivers, and ever since - same problem - comp doesn't see the phone.

?

You will agree, wipe can't restore if any corrupt system file isn't ?
N this can't be solved by any measure you.took, change pc/change cable/wipe device
How is the idea to reflash?

Hello Dr!
So... i tried flashing ICS via mobile ODIN to try and see if it works - nothing. I tried a full wipe on stock GB - same.
I tried 3 different usb cables, and three comps - same same.

What i did notice now, is that if i keep trying to connect it for 20-30 times, it might work once out of those 30 and next time it won't work again.

hardware right ?
