Question re Droid, bubbles, hubs, popping, etc.

So I’ve got the Droid hooked up to the PC to charge, right? (That is to say, only to charge. It’s not set to sync, and it’s not mounted as a disk drive.) And two weird things are going on:

  1. The WinXP marimba-ish sound that indicates a device is being connected to, or disconnected from, the PC keeps going on and off and on and off, even though the phone and cord are absolutely still and not being messed with.
  2. I keep getting a message saying the device attached to the PC would work faster if I hooked it up to a USB 2.0 port, and it offers me a list. Well, old as this machine is, it’s still recent enough that there’s nothing BUT USB 2.0 on it.

I’m not asking for “solutions,” inasmuch as it’s not really a problem as long as the phone is still charging, which it appears to be. But does anyone have an explanation?



  1. Maybe this will help:

  2. Once again, Internet Win, at least for Item 2. I’ll try this out this weekend. Thanks, Roch!

    Item 1 is, I believe, a phone hardware issue. I’m due for a phone upgrade in January, and if this is as bad as it gets, I can live with this ’til then.
