NOTE: Please DO NOT delete any stock files in your phone without doing some research first. You can run into BIG problems. If you have researched and you know the proper way to delete stock files, please mak sure that you always back everything up to your PC before deleting. Better safe than sorry...

For Windows user only:

Connection problems are very common and are usually solved quite easily. Please try each of the following before you post about the problem you're having!


1. If you're using MPT, you must close it and disconnect your phone from your PC before you try to use any P2K programs. Then reconnect your phone and open the program you want to use.


2. If you have the option in your phone, make sure that it is defaulted to data/fax mode.

Menu -> Connections -> USB Settings


3. Search google for RSD Lite 2.7 (latest version is 2.8 but many people report bugs). Please do not ask for a link as it is not allowed to be posted here.

Install RSD, then open it and plug in your phone. If it asks for drivers, use these. Once the drivers are installed and the phone is recognized by RSD Lite, open a P2k program WITH RSD LITE STILL OPEN AND CONNECTED. Leave RSD Lite open while you use any P2k programs. You may have to do this all the time - it's very common.

That will take care of the problem 99% of the time.


4. Try a new USB port (NEVER THROUGH A USB HUB). Connect your phone to a different USB port. Windows will ask you for drivers again and use the ones linked above. Once installed, go through step 3 again and it will work.

This little annoyance that Windows has (having to reinstall drivers for each USB port) actually helps us sometimes!


If the 4 suggestions above do not work, please post a new thread with a detailed description of the problems you're having along with the exact wording of any error messages.

:good:


EDIT: If all of the above fails, check out this guide by yitz0550 for details on uninstalling and reinstalling your drivers. :good:

Sir EchoZulu,

iv tried rsd lite, the one you were suggesting to the other guy. but still cant detect my V3i.

august born posted that v3i phone doesnt need the p2k command and i should search the board. iv been at it for a few hours now. tried everything to no avail.

if you can pls help me. how do i install a skin to my v3i? can you give me a link or some instructions to do.

my problem right is that:

1. it doesnt go to p2k mode, it stays in AT mode
2. rsd couldn't detect my v3i
3. skinmanager couldn't detect my v3i also

________________________________

- i can connect to MPT.
- what do you mean by assign com ports?
- yes, i've installed the drivers
- im on winXp

hmmm... what else, when i connect my phone to the other com port it says "found new hardware"

________________________________

changing my usb from memory to data/fax won't help either coz it now doesnt even see my phone


OK, let's start from the beginning. First off, leave your phone in data/fax mode. Even though it appears as though your PC doesn't detect your phone at all, this is the mode that you will need to be in to use P2k programs.

Let's start by opening RSD Lite and connecting the phone. Does XP ask for drivers? If so, please download these drivers and unpack them into a folder on your desktop. Point to that folder when XP asks you for drivers.

If XP does not ask you for drivers, then you've probably already installed them. With your phone still connected to your PC go to Control Panel -> System. Then on the Hardware tab, click on Device Manager. Under Modems you should see an entry there for a Motorola Modem (or something along those lines). Right-click it and select Update Driver. Follow the instructions to choose drivers from a specific location and point to the folder on your desktop with the drivers from earlier in this post. Once it's done, close everything and unplug your phone. Now plug it back in and open RSD Lite.

Let me know you this works out for you.

:good:

Ha! :)

Well at least it's working now... :good:

Are you positive that your new file is named "cl.gif" (exact name must be used, all lower-case)? Also, are you sure that the dimensions are exact?

Please clarify this part:

"but it ask me the driver, so i select the p2k_drivers but i occurs some problem, i dunno why?"

What problem is occuring? Are you getting an error message? If so, please type the text here exactly as it appears in the error message. P2k Programs will certainly not work until the drivers are installed properly.

Also (I forgot to ask :)) what phone do you have?

First close all programs and try downloading this file. Unpack it into a new folder and run the exe. Then open RSD Lite 2.7 and connect your phone.
