    If the install package gave options to choose the drive that would be great advise. In fact, there are no options. You run the install program and that error message results. It's like it doesn't even see the C: drive. If you know a way to force it to install to C: and ignore D:, I'm listening.

    RSD_Lite_2.5_Release.exe which was extracted from RSD_Lite_2.5_Release.zip is what I have. It took me all day to find it and since this problem I've continued to search for others with no luck so far. Guess I'm just not looking in the right place.

    The problem is obviously NOT the file. I get the same result as before. The specific error mesage is:

    "Default drive f D: detected; RSD program files can only be installed on C: drive. RSD program will abort."

    Maybe this needs to be done on a computer where ther hard drive is NOT partitioned. I followed read me first.txt to the letter. I'm just stumped.

    when I download that file, my computer thinks it's a Windows Media Player file... When I double-click it, it tries to open a movie... what am I doing wrong?

    Oh this is why you prob having problems. RAR files, its like zip, but you need winrar program, google for it. And when you get it use the wizard and extract the file, to its own folder on your desktop.

    thanks technokid, i figured it out on my own last night after posting. I had never heard of the file extension 'rar'. I just googled it and figured out that it was a new 'zip' type of file and i downloaded winRAR. I was successfully able to flash to version .02 on my RAZR V3c. Haven't tried to transfer any files yet, but I plan on trying to transfer my phone book from my V3c to my Lexus via bluetooth later tonight. wish me luck.

    WinRAR is not really something new but lots of people have new clue what it is.
