    ok first off, i lost my original data cable and charger. i went to vegas the day i got it and left it on the plane.. anyway i have ordered the original one off the inet but i am waiting for the delivery.

    I have the data cable from radioshack and i have just plugging it into my pc to charge it. in the manual it says i should see a flash drive on my pc to manage the photos. however when i use this cable i don't see that. am i doing something wrong? or is it the cable i am using?

    same question for itunes. when i open itunes i don't see a device listed to manage my songs.

    Try plugging it in do a different USB port on your computer. Really. Try them all. In my experience the Pre can be a bit picky about the voltage and can do funny things of USB hubs or some USB ports.

    When you plug it in, do you see the popup on your phone? It should give you three options, media sync, usb drive or just charge

    If I remember correctly, the front USB ports on many desktop computers are slower or provide less power than the ones in back (at least on marginally older computers), so the above suggestion to try all of them (and why) is appropriate. If you're not willing to try the back ones, then it's hard to say whether it's the cable or the ports.
