Phone not detected anymore


I have been happily developing for a while using visual studio and a Samsung S3 over USB.
Yesterday, after putting a breakpoint to step through the code as I did many time before, the phone froze and I had to reboot it.

No sweat so far... but when I then resumed working I found that Visual Studio was not seeing the phone anymore when I ran the project.

I have reinstalled the drivers for the S3 without success. I'm puzzled, can anybody help me troubleshoot this?

    Note that the phone is detected by windows, and I can see it's content without problem

    Try USBDeview and remove all Phone related stuff and install drivers again. See if that helps.

    Well that's embarassing...

    It turns out "USB Debugging" switched itself off and I did not think of double checking...

    All sorted now
