I wonder if your N900 USB port may be faulty.

Suppose that's a possibility....although, if this N900 truly is a new one and I am very gentle in attaching/removing USB cable, I'd be surprised if it is. However, you never know.....

Will be interesting to hear from seller what the problem is....should receive N900 by Saturday....

i found a solution to my problem...the n900 CAN be flashed without the use of a usb..the guys at the repair shop showed me how...they took the back cover off, removed the battery, and they attached some sort of cable to the area which is circled in red...and flashed the n900 from there...didnt know that was even possible

Very interesting.....

What kind of repair shop was this?

And did they flash the N900 the same method as we usually do, other than attaching the cable to the inside of the N900?

UPDATE

Got word from seller that my N900 had 'manufacturing defect'. He didn't specify what exactly.

However, the good news (for me...) is that he's sending me another N900....should be here in a day or two.....so, at least seller is very responsive and responsible....
