Are you using a BB USB cord or generic?

Are you connecting to a USB port on the back of your PC close to the motherboard, not a hub or on the monitor or keyboard?

Can you connect to the device from the computer? Does it show the PIN in BDM 6? The phone should prompt if you want to sync it or charge only when plugged into the computer, does this happen?

If you can connect with the software I would say do a backup of your data and reload the phone from factory.

Are you getting the bolt through the charge indicator?

Also under options > application management > blackberry system software 6 > edit permissions > connections. That "USB" is set to "allowed"

For what it's worth I saw the same behavior today on a VZW 8530 that I updated to the .886 version of the software. It recognized usb( that's how I did the upgrade) but after the upgrade, I got a message on the device saying their wasn't adequate power coming over usb to charge the device.
