What exactly is your problem? Do you mean mobile data or storage like sdcard? Also, you definitely need to plug int into a PC for rooting because you need to install a custom recovery via fastboot (due to S-ON, there is no other way).

Plugged my phone into my pc and it will not be seen by HTC manager, windows or any other software I tried everything and I can't get the data transfer through usb to work I can get it to charge but that's it

OK, try reinstall the drivers. If that won't work, try to insert sdcard directly to PC via adapter, or try using adb / fastboot from Linux.

What kind of USB port are you using? USB 3.0 or USB 2.0? USB 3.0 is known to cause issues. Also, did you try another port or another computer maybe?

Did you get ADB or fastboot working (as dansou901 suggested)? Fastboot is the last resort, if thats not working from atleast linux you may need to use your warranty.

Progress is helpful.
A finished product is more helpful.
Thank me for what I've done, not what I'm doing.

Yeah... If it won't work like @CurtisMJ suggested, the usb port on your phone might be broken...
