When we plug the USB cable on the P168, two options appear. We can use it as a Mass Storage or as a WebCam. If we choose that last option the screen of the phone shows a drawing of a webcam but the screen of the PC doesn't change.
It's not a malfunction of the camera, is just that we need a software able to detect the camera.
If we use an instant messenger software like Live messenger it will recognize it at once.


Refer to the "Software Downloads" section for a very handy webcam program that will help run the webcam!

What does that mass storage option do?

mass storage makes it act as a flash drive.

My 168+ has 3 options- the 3rd is as a COM connection to use as a modem, or to access with something like PC Sync Manager

So you've actually found a driver so the pc recognizes the phone as a phone not just a storage device

Well, I've had no problems pluggin the phone in "hot" i.e. on, and I saw the 3 menu items since day 1.
Then I had that problem with the phone itself not popping up the menu for a while (fixed via resetting the UART in engineering mode) but during that time my computer said that it detected a MT6227 unit and loaded the software for it off the web (even though my firmware says MT6225).
Now that I fixed it, it's showing the menu again, and I've been able to upload/download stuff (backup the phone book, upload pictures, music) through the PC Sync Manager software.

I wonder if in com setting it can be flashed through USB?? I guess only if the phone is working and you want to try an upgrade... but if the phone is dead, you can't set it to the COM...

I was curious about that part of being able to flash through the com port also. I have the 6225 chipset in mine also and have downloaded the 6227 driver, but never installed it. The phone suite says it's for bluetooth and that's how I've been using it, but the cable would make things easier I think. I'm assuming you got the stuff off of "Zen's" website like I did. My hardrive went south on my home pc so my serial cable is doing me no good for flashing as my laptop has no such port of course. Maybe when I get some time I'll see if I can really screw up one of my phones. lol!

that would be another major breakthrough if we could utilize the USB cable some how and flash the phone.. Smile

You're right, that would be great. Why should i purchase another cable just to flash my device. And about the webcam option, it doesn't appear on my device.
