in most times replacing the cable helps a lot cause in the cable is the "flexible" (worn out) part of the usb connector

Douglas, the usb connectors on the Pluto are not of the highest quality and if you do enough connecting/disconnecting you will find they start to fail. 

It is a very good idea to always have the second usb power-only connection in use at all times. This helps alleviate a lot of problems.

Also, not all usb cables are equally good as far as the quality of their connectors. Some certainly have a better, more solid fit than others.

And finally, replacing the on-board connectors is not trivial, unless you have very good smd skills and equipment.
