    *For those stumped with deleting images*

    I had the same problem as almost everyone. Trying to delete those pictures with bitpim and the usb cable.

    Using the instructions from Superdave in another thread i finally got it.

    You need to go to C:/windows/system32 and rename the catroot folder to catroot3.

    Then do the p2kman seem file replacements again.

    Before all I did were the p2kman usbser and p2k file replacements and always got the error message when accessing the motorola/shared/picture folder

    So try to rename the catroot file and it should work.

    BTW I am running windows xp sp2, if that matters.

    Hope this helps..

    This worked for me too.
    I had read that thread where SD said to rename the CatRoot folder to CatRoot3, but did not try it since I had just deleted my stock images using the FutureDial usb to serial cable.

    When I saw this post, I figured I'd try it.
    I put the usbser.sys file in the C:\WINDOWS\Driver Cache\i386 and in the C:/WINDOWS/system32 (which I have tried before). But this time I first renamed the CatRoot folder to CatRoot3.
    After I rebooted, I could access the shared > audio and pics folders with my Moto usb cable!

    Very nice ...
    Thanks for posting this again ...

    The instructions are only for straight USB cables, if you get a FutureDial Cable with a Serial > USB conevertor you don't need to do that.

    How do you get rid of the empty files in the phone?

    So once you erase the stock inages using bitpim, how do you get rid of the locked files that are now empty and the phone thinks are corrupt?

    Reboot the phone and they should be gone.

    the term reboot or cycle simply means turn it off and then back on

    I'm not finding the usbser.sys file that I need to use. I d/l'd p2kman.zip and all that is inside is an executable. Where do I get this file from?

    Update: Never mind, I found it on the wiki page. other places I've gotten the download from did not contain the necessary file!

    How do you get rid of the empty files in the phone?

    Even after I reboot the phone the files are still there, there still present but now the icons in the phone have a "X" through them and they are 0KB in size. My question is can you get rid of the empty files in the phone? When I try to look at them they are corrupt and the phone asks if I want to delete them, then says they are locked and wont let me delete.

    i got bitpim to work correctly, browing all the file structures of my phone. but as soon as i try to expand either the pictures or audio folder under motorola/shared ... i get an error mesage about manipulating the filesystem. it is the ONLY directories that give me that error message! how can i fix this so that i can get rid of these STUPID pictures?? what's the method with PST ?

    That's what this thread is explaining; follow the directions on the wiki page posted earlier in this thread exactly and the problem should be fixed.

    Setup

    %System% represents your Windows directory (Usually C:\Windows or C:\Winnt)

    1. Unplug the phone from the computer
    2. Install Bitpim
    3. Rename C:\%System%\system32\catroot to catroot3
    4. Copy usbser.sys from p2kman.zip to C:\%System%\Driver Cache\i386
    5. Delete the file usbser.sys from C:\%System%\system32\drivers
    6. Copy usbser.sys from p2kman.zip C:\%System%\system32\drivers
    7. Reboot the computer
    Each time I delete the usbser.sys from \system32\drivers it automatically reappears as the 2003 version even if I paste in the 2000 version. Any ideas?

    I've read others with this problem, though I didn't encounter it. I thought perhaps, that renaming the catroot folder is the reason I didn't have the problem.
    If you boot to Safe Mode can you then delete and replace the file?

    Oops

    On my Motorola V710…In deleting the factory images (those stupid pictures that come with the phone)...I accidentally deleted (using BitPim) a file from the Motorola/shared/pictures directory that was semi-crucial. Now when I turn on the phone I see a white screen with some lines of garbage on the bottom. I have to close then reopen the phone to use it (this clears the screen). Could you tell me what this file was that I deleted?

    I am asking for a list (or even better a link to) the "crucial files" that should be in the directory. An example is customer_opening.gif. There are others...


    Any help would be much appreciated.
