Default [Q]Can't flash a tot even in emergency download

Hey guys, I'm having an annoying problem here.
When I try to connect my phone to a computer, it just goes straight to charging, it doesn't even recognize on either end that a USB is connected to a computer. Now, sometimes I can force it to work, but that is like around 200 tries and it finally connects. I suspect it might be in test mode (but I'm not sure, I tried pressing # on the dialer to see if it pops up but nothing shows), so I've tried to follow the instructions to flash a .tot file by pressing power + volume up, unfortunately, the computer still doesn't recognize anything is connected, and neither does LGNPST. I have all the drivers properly installed (I was able to successfully downgrade to zv7/install gingervolt last week), and am out of ideas on how to get it to work. Any help would be appreciated.

So far I've tried about 6 different cables in four different USB ports to no success.

pow + vol down (hard reset) should work, phone has to be completely off. not even the charging animation. unplug from pc, pull and replace batt, put batt in then plug into usb then hard reset (hold until factory reset pops up) 10 secs or so
this has allways worked for me no matter how badly i messed up the phone.

Well, I tried your method of a hard reset and it still didn't work. Any other ideas? Is there any way to make the computer force to recognize the phone when its in emergency download mode?

I'm having a similar issue on a friend's phone

Edit: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1564941 I think this is the solution

I followed the instructions exactly, and LGNPST still isn't noticing anything and won't go into emergency mode......this is frustrating me....if I can just get this thing back to stock and lose cwm i can just take it to the store and get a new one.....

*EDIT* Well it randomly decided to connect to my computer again. The problem now is as soon as it goes into download mode(LGNPST is at around 11% complete and about to start on the Masterbin), it loses the connection to the computer and can't finish flashing the tot file....ugh..

Anyone have any ideas? I'm going crazy over here trying to figure out whats wrong. Every like 100th try, it will connect to the computer still, but if I try and run mt's revoallinone package it fails to unroot (says access is denied or folder not found), or try lgnpst it loses the usb connection the second it goes to that download screen.

Yeah I've tried that. On the occassion that the COM port reveals which port is the phone(usually on the 100th time of reconnecting the usb cord and successfully able to go into usb debug) I run that program, only for it to state that this is not a lg revo and auto close before I can get all the log data. Its frustrating...I only started to have this problem when I installed GingerVolt.....

Will adb recognize your device, because i had the same issue on a newer revo, you say your on gingervolt then you should be able to set up root acces and push cwm through adb then boot to cwm and flash sonething anything a recovery or do a wipe from there and i believe i saw a method in the forums for installing a stock os fron a zip. All depending on usb connection though

I have cwm already on there. I want it and the root off and back to stock, but I can never flash a tot and unfortunately I have no experience with adb, but I guess I'll google instructions to unroot via that and see if I can go back to stock via it as well.
