The EVO needs to know what you want it to be. When you first plug it in, you have 4 choices that show up for about 10 seconds. If you don't make the choice, I think it defaults to charging only.
The choices are:
HTC Sync (Software Windows wants is on the SDHC card it came with)
To transfer data, you need to choose Disc Drive. Took me a few minutes to find this. The Pre waited and didn't do anything until you decided. The HTC doesn't wait.

I had this issue on windows 7. In my system tray, there was an Add Device icon with a spinning circle. I clicked on that and it said that it was checking Windows update for updated drivers. I double clicked the icon and in the window that appeared, I had the option to turn that off. After that, I unplugged and replugged and was fine. I doubt this will fix everyone's issues, but hopefully it'll help.

You can find the connection by pulling the notifications down from the top of the screen. Go to the top bar, pull down.
However, my phone can't find my HTC sync on my XP PC, so it won't sync. I've removed the program, downloaded the updated HTC Sync program from htc.com, and it still won't "find htc sync."

Well my issue is resolved by using the usb charging cable that came with the phone. I was previously using a different micro usb cable I had lying around. Don't know why it would make any difference. Wierd thing was that I tested out the older cable with a different pc and evo and it worked fine. Guess this computer only likes the cable that evo came with for some reason.

This might sound like a ridiculously simple solution, but it worked on mine. Don't plug into a USB hub. Plug it directly into your computer's USB 2.0 port. I researched online, tried all sorts of other things. Even changed cables. Nothing worked until I moved from the hub to the PC.
I'm on Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
