Ok, there are numerous tutorials on the internet telling you how to get your computer to recognize your V3. Well, here's another one. This one is short and sweet, but very effective. Just to be sure, I just tried it on a fresh PC & one that had driver issues.
Unpack the download, you'll need winrar or similar. Once you have that unpackaged, we can move on.
This download of P2K Bezol has 2.9 P2K drivers included. This IS different from the other downloads available on the interent, uneless someone did the samething.
** If you have NEVER plugged your phone into the computer, please SKIP step 1. **
** If you HAVE plugged in your phone and tried installing drivers, but something went wrong.. follow EVERY step.**
UNPLUG YOUR PHONE FROM THE COMPUTER!!
1. SKIP IF YOU HAVE NEVER PLUGGED YOUR PHONE INTO THE COMPUTER
Run the Device Manager batch app that you downloaded above (devmgr.bat that was in the devshowall.zip). Windows Device Manager will pop up. Click the view menu, and select "Show Hidden Devices". Now navigate to the Modems catagory, click the + next to it. It will expand. Remove all traces of Motorola USB Modem. Do this by right clicking over the item and selecting "Uninstall" Next, navigate to the Motorola USB Device Catagory (if its there), click the +, and uninstall everyone of the items in there. Finally, navigate to the Universal Serial Bus controllers catagory, click the +, and uninstall all "Unknown devices".
2. Plug your phone into the computer.
Windows will detect your phone.
3. XP will detect the phone, and prompt for drivers, direct it to wherever you have them saved... (Check "Install from list or specific location")
Check the Install from List or Specific Location box, and click next.
Click Include This Location In The Search, and Click Browse.
Now locate your bezol folder that you downloaded, you must have unpackaged it. I unpackaged mine to the desktop.
4. Find the DRV folder within the newp2k folder, Click ok, and then finish out the installation.
5. Once the drivers are installed, unplug the phone, wait a few seconds, and then plug it back in.
6. Run the Bezol P2K (p2ktools.exe) app on the PC
7. Your phone will now switch modes ..might take a few seconds..(you'll hear Windows sounds) and then it will prompt for more drivers. If it doesn't switch modes, try leaving your phone plugged ina dn turning it off and then on (If it still didn'detect see the *** at the very bottom of this guide) Once again direct it to where you have them saved. (This is the SAME place as before) After it finds numerous devices, you're all set...almost.. Like I said it will find a few different things, but the drivers are all in that "drv" folder that was in the Bezol download.
If it doesn't switch modes and prompt for more drivers see the *** below (very bottom of this post)
**You might get a message pop up saying the target file exists (p2k.sys) and is a diff language than the source, ignore that error, and click ok.. Who knows why the drivers language matters? not me. [Smile] **
Here is only ONE of the things it will find, there will be a few (MCU Logging, Test Command Interface, Accessories Interface) but they all use the same drivers.
8. Once its done installing all those devices, unplug the Phone from PC.
9. CLOSE P2K Bezol and RESTART the Bezol application. <--very important!!
10. Plug phone in and enjoy. You'll see in the bottom left corner, it shows disconnected (RED DOT) Once you plug your phone back in, it will be Connected and show the GREEN DOT!
I also ran into issues where the cable was the culprit!! Just yesterday I spenta good portion of my day helping user ANH - which found it was his cable causing the problems. The weirdest part was, you could fully flash using RSD with his bad cable, just the p2k apps wouldn't work. Cables are cheap. Headaches suck.
*** If you cannot get p2k to get make windows prompt for the additional drivers, close p2ktools and run rsd lite 2.5.. if you don't have RSD lite 2.5... Google is your best friend right about now. Upon installing RSD Lite, Windows may ask you to install "hotfixes".. do so. I HIGHLY suggest making sure you have SP2 (Service Pack 2 for XP). I'm not saying that this will solve your problem, but its always a good idea to have the most recent hotfixes and serivce packs. Please Register and Post Your Results After Using This Guide.
I know i'm late guys but i'm having a little problem. Camtasia doesn't record the small bubbles that pop up on the bottom left corner. I've recorded six times with diffrent settings but it's not showing up. Does anyone know a free tool that can record desktop video and turn it into a flash file?
