Customer Question

Hello there,
I hope you are doing good.
Quick question, I have a Toshiba bought in August 2013. Since a few weeks I have being noticing that when I connect my phone to the pc with the cable it does connect he phone as it shows it is charging but it doesn't connect it "completely" as I can't the phone between the devices. Due to this I can't transfer any imagines and music from one to another. What kind of problem can It be? ??
Thanks in advance.
