After T-Mobile upgraded my "original MyTouch 3G" to Froyo, I have to reboot the phone to reconnect it to my computer after it's been connected once and disconnected.

I've tried using different USB ports on my computer, and everything else I can think of. Is there a fix for this?

Thanks very much.

Are you properly dismounting the phone storage from your computer, and then having your phone mount it, before disconnecting USB? – Matthew Read Mar 23 '11 at 5:19
That did it. I was pulling the plug whenever I was ready. If you'll put this as an answer I'll mark it as "the" answer. Thanks a lot. (Funny that I never had to do this routine before the upgrade. Oh well, I'm glad to have a "fix".) – ChrisC Mar 23 '11 at 18:43
Done, glad to help. – Matthew Read Mar 23 '11 at 19:06
