Motorola Cell Phone W375 unable to connect to my PC

I'm trying to connect a Motorola W375 cell phone up to my computer. The mini-usb hookup recognizes the phone however the drivers I have do not work with the phone. At this point all I really want to do is to upload ringtones. I am able to hookup other motorola cell phones and have them recognized as modems, I would then use p2kCommander to interact with the file system on the phone.

Because the phone is not recognized, I assume I need a different driver for this phone (prepaid minutes cell phone) I have not been able to find anything yet. I wan't to be able to upload my own ringtones onto this phone.

Thanks,

Nacho

It now allows me to connect my phone to the computer and have it identified. Still I am unable to upload my own ring tones.

You may want to try P2K Commander http://handheld.softpedia.com/get/Developer-Tools/File-Manager/P2kCommander-38120.shtml, along with the Motorola Software Update program.  Here's an example with the RAZR, but the idea is the same with other Motorola phones: http://forums.wirelessadvisor.com/razr-phones/59694-loading-ringtones-from-p2k-commander.html

Thanks for the help Callandor, as of now I've managed to find more information however I still am not able to communitcate in p2kCommander with this phone. I haven't tried any other versions as of yet my research indicates that this phone is different from the other Motorola phones ive been able to use p2cComannder with. its a DOM phone or something?  I have this flasher util called dmtools from here http://rapidshare.com/files/44641956/W375_V0.0.76.rar.html and some .MOT (motorola?) files I dont know what to do with these yet no info.txt

Do I need to update the phones firmware/software ? I'm more confused now than when I started this!

Yes - the Motorola Software Update program.  It needs to be running and communicating with the phone before you start P2K Commander, as it is the means by which communication is established.  Once it signals you that it has detected the phone, you start P2K Commander and open the folder corresponding to the phone (a p2k, or something like that) and drag and drop an mp3 file to the ringtone area.  There are some youtube videos that show this whole process.
