    It could be a bad cable - or it could be a bad USB connector on the phone. (There are 4 pins - 2 for charging and 2 for data - if there's nothing connected to the data connection on the motherboard, you won't get the dropdown.)

    Welcome to Android Central! If it doesn't work with a different USB cable, then use a can of compressed air to blow out the tablet's USB port, and a small Q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol to clean the contacts. Now try again.

    Also, on the PC, are you using one of the native USB ports, or a hub? Make sure you're using one of the native ports.
