    non-OEM drivers

    ok im a cheapo
    i got a data cable for my kx160/kx16 phones ($.99 off ebay)
    anyways this stupid cable didnt come with any drivers
    i tried all the ones on Kyoceras site, but none worked
    the seller wasnt any help
    they said check with Kyocera, then i told them it was not a Kyocera adapter so thats not any help, so they sent me a faq about return policies
    im at my wits end here
    the closest i can get to making this work is a PL-2303 Driver i found
    but all that does is not pop up the new hardware wizard
    please if anyone has seen this cable, or know of any other non-OEM drivers that i can try
    please let me know

    wow your fast
    sorry i guess i should have been more specific
    i got those, just the other drivers are not there
    i found the same guide here
    http://www.datacabledrivers.com/downloads/kyocera/
    and the link to Driver01.zip worked
    but they still dont help
    i can see my adapter in device manager listed as 'prolific usb-to-serial bridge'
    but i still cant detect my phone

    bitpim acts like it sees the phone, but does not support it ('generic' doesnt let me download/upload anything)

    ok i got a little more info
    devcon tells me:
    USB\VID_067B&PID_2303\5&3873A573&0&2
    Name: USB-Serial Controller
    Hardware ID's:
    USB\Vid_067b&Pid_2303&Rev_0300
    USB\Vid_067b&Pid_2303
    Compatible ID's:
    USB\Class_ff&SubClass_00&Prot_00
    USB\Class_ff&SubClass_00
    USB\Class_ff

    and the prolific drivers are for "For Prolific USB VID_067B&PID_2303 Only"
    looks good except for i have two IDs and the first is "Rev_0300"
    maybe thats the problem?
    doubt it, im starting to think this cable is broken somehow
    the seller told me they would exchange it or refund me
    but its not even worth it, i can buy a new one with drivers for the price to ship it back to them

    are there some certain steps/tricks i could be doing wrong?

    ok ill post this in my thread too

    so i figured i had a bad cable/wrong drivers. so i went and bought another non oem cable, this one came with the driver disc.
    when i got it, it was the same cable i had previously bought, and the disc had the same old prolific drivers i downloaded.
    needless to say, its not working either.

    so lets get this straight....
    install the modem drivers.....
    install the cable drivers.....
    hook up the phone (while turned on).....
    plug in the usb to the pc....
    and KMPT is supposed to recognize it.

    no special tricks/tips i need to know about?

    I purchased this same cable. Not only does it not work but it fried the battery in the KX16 as many others have stated. I'm going to file with the BBB if they don't respond to me soon. I've contacted them a few times and have received very non-personal, useless auto-responses.

    Thanks! I'd try them out, but plugging the phone in doesn't even detect any hardware ;( Anyone know a fix for that?

    Smile Oem

    Well, my Kyocera OEM cable came in the mail today. I plugged it in and right away it worked with no problems. It's worth the extra $15+. GO OEM with these phones! It's so nice to not have to hassle with this anymore.

    Unhappy

    I have a KX5B phone (not the remix) and a non OEM cable. Would any of these links work for me? I can't seem to find any drivers anywhere
