I have a Sony MP3 player (model NWZ-W202 -- Link.

For some reason, whenever I try to connect, it connects and then disconnects in 2 second bursts. Does anyone know where the problem lies? Much thanks in advance.

Try jiggling the cable. If it causes it to connect/disconnect, then you know that it is either the cable or the connector. Hold the connector stable and jiggle the cable again. If it still does it, then it is the cable; if not, then it is the connector. (By connector, I mean the USB end, but you can also try the device end as well.)

Okay, I think I figured out the problem. When I hook up my MP3 for charging by itself, it works just fine. However, when I hook up by BlackBerry for charging WHILE the MP3 is charging, the connection comes and goes. I take it that onboard USB cannot provide power for everything? Neither devices are connected to a hub.

Well thatís what it sounds like. You can find out for sure like so:
  • Start->Run->devmgmt.msc
  • Expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers branch
  • Right-click the items in there, selecting Properties
  • View their Advanced and Power tabs
You can see if the controllersí bandwidths are being overloaded and if the devices are drawing too much power.
