I have a motorola V3t and I need help getting windows vista to recognize it when i plug it in. I dont have a micro sd card so when i plug it in, all i see in my computer is "removable disk (K:)" and when i click on it it just tells me to "please instert disk into... ect". I want to be able to add some songs, music and personal ringtones, but i can't figure out a way to do it. I tried screwing around with drivers but appaerntly i cant find the right one.

I heard im supposed to buy "motorola phone tools" but i am trying to find a free third party program if possible. Also my version of vista is the 64 bit.

Thanks for helping!

michael2,

The bad news is that you can ONLY access files stored on you phone's SD card - NOT the phone's built-in memory - so basically, you'll to to get an SD card if you want to transfer media files between your phone and comptuer via the phone's USB connector.

Here are the steps:

You can access your phone's memory card with a PC and move / copy compatible files to it, or from it.

There are two steps to this process:

Setting up the Phone, and connecting and transferring between the computer.

Note: When your phone is connected to a computer, you can access the memory card only through the computer.

To set up on your phone:

Press the Center Select Key
Use the Navigation Key to scroll to Settings, and Press the Center Select Key
Use the Navigation Key to scroll to Connection, and Press the Center Select Key
Use the Navigation Key to scroll to USB Settings, and Press the Center Select Key
Use the Navigation Key to scroll to Default Connection, and Press the Center Select Key
Use the Navigation Key to scroll to Memory Card, and Press the Center Select Key
Once you have completed the above steps attach the Motorola Original USB cable to the accessory port on your phone and to an available USB port on your computer.

Then on your computer:

Find where your phone's memory card displays as a "Removable Disk " icon

On a PC this is the "My Computer" window
On a Mac it's on the desktop

Double-click the "Removable Disk" icon to access the files on your phone's memory card

To store the desired files onto the memory card, drag and drop them as follows:

MP3 files: mobile/audio
Screen savers: mobile/picture
Wallpapers: mobile/picture
Video clips: mobile/vide


Hope this helps.

michael2,

The answer is YES, you can use your own MP3 files as ringtones but they must be as follows:

A bit rate of 64 kbps or less, and be no greater than 2:30 in length
— or —
A bit rate or 128 kbps, and no greater than 30 seconds in length

Check out the tech support FAQ section on Motorol's user-support site at:

Hope this helps.
