Am fairly new to my htc desire hd.   Can't seem to transfer any data to the computer.   When I connect my phone to my computer all it does is charge the phone.   According to the manual a screen should appear asking me about connection type etc.   But nothing!   Default connection type is set at disk drive and I have ticked the box to ask me about USB connection type etc.   What am I doing wrong?   Help will be much appreciated.

Note, this board if for the standard Desire. There's a board dedicated to the HD at

Assuming the two are very similar in this regard, what USB cable are you using? If it's a special "charge only cable", then it might be missing the two data wires, in which case the phone would only charge.
Normally, when you are connected to a PC, there should be an icon on the notification bar showing it is charging. If you open the notificaiton window, you should be able to select the USB mode.
So, my first suggestion would be to try another USB cable (and ask your question on the Desire D board.)
