Link to flashing.

This is what I used on my phone. I think it cost me like $20, but it was worth it.

Fixed all my problems, and now it works on T-Mobile.

I cannot transfer music from micro sd to my kyocera phone

You should not need to transfer the music from the sd card to the phones memory, but play the songs directly from the sd card. Once the songs are loaded onto the sc card in the right format, (MP3) your phone should find them on the card.

Assuming the player is charged. (For charging always connect directly to the computer, not through a reader or hub).
When buttons on the player do not react, reset the player:
Disconnect the player from the computer.
See that the HOLD button is not engaged.
Gently push the RESET button on the rear side: use a narrow pointed
object, like a paperclip.

Did synchronization of the songs in Windows Media Player fail ?
For transferring songs, check in Windows Media Player:
1. The player is detected in Windows Media Player 10 or higher.
2. Setup the Library / Add to Library: add the location of songs you want to transfer in the library.
3. Create Playlist; give the list a name and put songs in a playlist
4. Sync Playlist: transfer the list of songs onto the player and wait for the message until you're allowed to disconnect.

Motorola ROKR z6m Media Player Not Functional

Okay, now this goes for if you can't see your pictures as well.

You need to make sure that there are not files for each song. Go onto the memory card and if there are folders for each song, move the songs onto the card 1 by 1 and delete the folders. It seems as though the folders are tricking the phone and making it shut down. The phone cannot process that many folders.

Once this is accomplished, you should be able to opperate like it should be.

Folders are created when you sink your media player to the phone, don't do this!

Move the songs over 1 by 1 to the music folder preinstalled on the memory card once formatted by the phone.

Error (-48)

Error(-48) is somekind of hardware communication error. The easiest way to fix it will be to flash the firmware. Here's how to do it.. It will take a while(around half an hour) but its worth it and will also improve the sound clarity of your phone.

What u need :
1) Motorola Driver
2) RSD Lite or Flash&Backup 3
3) Monster Pack(Flash update for(Lseries including SLVR)

Firstly you need to backup all your files that stored on phone memory because it will delete everything in your phone when you flashing.
Start RSD Lite and let it connect to your phone. If your phone is not detected (and you are certain you have everything installed), disconnect the data cable, then shut your phone off, and manually put it into bootloader mode. You do this by pressing and holding down the "*" and "#" keys while pressing and holding down the on button until you see text display on your screen. Now connect the phone back to the data cable. Now click the button labeled "...".

This will bring up the open file dialog box. Find the file you want to use (in this case select your monster pack file) and then click the button labeled "Open".

Click the "Start" button. Now you should see various messages displayed on the screen as the program processes each code group and does various other things.

This is what the phone will display during a flash:

After it's finished and your phone has given you a confirmation tone, you can click "Close" and disconnect your phone from the cable and check out your changes.
If you should get a message like this where the program seems to hang:

Don't panic. Just close the program, chance are your phone is just fine. Sometimes this happens. This is usually caused by a checksum error. There could be more serious cases where you phone appears dead. In this case try to reflash your file again. You could also try reflashing another file.

Flash drive is not working correctly

Did you try to download your songs to your media player, or whatever you use to play music on yours? Sometimes if they are not saved correctly you can not just copy them to anywhere.

How do you change ringtones/settings !?

Well firstly,..make sure you have downloaded some songs via Bluetooth to the Sd card.
Then select setup.
then go to Ringer alert Style.
Then click edit.
then ringtone line 1, on the lil blue/white file folder.
A screen should come up saying select ring tone,..scroll down to more,..and click more
click my audio
click my audio again, scroll down to trans flash,..which is where any bluetooth downloaded ringtones, songs, go too.
select what you want from your downloads, click insert
then click save.

You can also do that for mesages
Hope it helps
