    You might have to enter Disk Management and locate the missing phone. It might not have a drive letter assigned and can't be found. This article goes into more details. (Hint: to save some typing you can right click the start button and access Disk Management from there.)

    Or you can try other devices with the same cable to see if the cable is faulty or your phone but before that did you turn on usb tranfer through your phone ? Usually it's a sign the cable is working and so is your phone
