Windows 7: Motorola phone drivers

20 Jan 2009   #1

Windows Vista/7
Motorola phone drivers

SLB: Motorola RAZR V3 - Vista USB Drivers - & Windows XP 64-bit Install

The installation says It does not recognize my system's operating system, which makes me believe that I'll have to use XP or Vista to charge my cellphone.

Does anyone know a way around this, such as maybe running Vista as an emulation to use the correct drivers?

Only other way I can think of doing this would be to fix my first mistake by repartioning the hard drive so I can dual boot Win 7 and Vista (I'm a little impulsive...).

Windows 7 Beta
Motorola Phone Tools -> Working Solution


1.) Driver Installation (x64)

Download the lates Driver from

You have to register as Developer first.

Don't start the MSI, it will not work.

Create an Folder "C:\Driver"

Decompress the MSI-File (Start/Run CMD):

msiexec /a Handset_USB_Driver_x64_v3.7.0.msi /qn TARGETDIR="C:\Driver"

Since we have no "add hardware" in control panel, we have to install this driver manually.
The Hardware-Wizard still exist.

Start/Search -> hdwwiz.exe

I don't know the exact text, because i'm using the german version...

- Button "next"
- select "hardware manually (expert)"
- Button "next"
- select "All Devices"
- Button "next"

Now you have to search for the Button "have disk". in my german version i can see only 10 % from the button in the lower right side. click on this button and search for the folder

C:\Driver\Common Files (64-Bit) Folder\Motorola Shared\MOTPCSDrivers\Drivers

- Select "motmodem"
- Button "Open"
- Button "OK"
- Select "Motorola" on left side
- Select "Motorla USB Modem" on right side
- Press "Next"
- Press "Next"


2.) Motorola Phone Tools

Install the Tools and all available Updates. Don't Cancel the installation, it will take some time (5 minutes on
my system)

3.) Driver Installation again

Motorola Phone Tools will install an old Drive that is not working with "Windows 7". Repeat step 1

that's all..

Greetings from Germany

Windows Vista/7

Im stuck on this part

Decompress the MSI-File (Start/Run CMD):

msiexec /a Handset_USB_Driver_x64_v3.7.0.msi /qn TARGETDIR="C:\Driver"
It doesn't do anything. I've googled decompressing msi files and gotten nowhere. If I leave out /qn, it just runs the file.

If I use 7zip to unzip it, it doesn't have anything useful.

You have to run the command line in administrator mode (right click and run as administrator).

Windows 7 Build 7000 Public

Works great! I tried the above instructions on Windows 7 32 bit (with 32 bit Motorola driver).

You do not have to create the C:\driver directory beforehand, and you do not have to use the quotes.

It did not extract for me at first, I had the msi file in the C:\driver directory. Once I moved it somewhere else, all was fine.

Now I can tether my V3xx without being limited to the speed of bluetooth. Almost faster than my DSL service at home!
