    Default USB Mass Storage Mode shuts down my PC

    Whenever I plug my Droid 3 into my HP Pavilion PC running Windows Vista Home Premium, with the phone on Mass Storage Mode, it shuts down my computer. It does this regardless of which USB port I use and even if it is the only thing I have plugged in. I am able to use the USB ports for other things fine. I had the same problem on my HTC Incredible 1, except after I rooted it and loaded Nils Business Sense ROM. With this ROM, I was able to browse my phone memory and SD card memory fine on this computer. The Droid 3 is completely stock. Has anyone else resolved this problem, and if so, how?

    Yeah, don't beat yourself up over it too much

    I see this often in several forums. All these mini usb cables look the same, so I Mark mine with color!
