Installing USB Flash Drivers

To connect phone in flashing mode, and perform tasks like flashing the main firmware, FS or to upload files to FS you must have USB Flash drivers installed on your computer.

With out installing USB Flash drivers, you can’t use XS++ or SeTool 2 lite or JDFlasher.

In good old days we used to use SEUS to do this automatically for us, but now SEUS updates phone to CID53 which is not desirable, so hence we install USB Flash Drivers manually. Here is the tutorial ! Please read the tutorial carefully and completely and also check out the video tutorial given !

Download the necessary drivers.

Index

1. XP Install.
2. Vista Install.
3. Automatic Installer. (Recommended for New users)

Important Note: If your phone C key and Power On button are the same then Hold 2+5 while connecting phone to USB Data cable instead of C key. In many new SE phones the C key is same as power on.

1. Installing Drivers (for Windows XP)

Then unpack the downloaded archive to a directory, your choice. (Use WinRAR to extract from archive)

1. Switch OFF your phone !
2. Remove the battery !
3. Reinsert your battery !
4. Don’t start your phone !
5. HOLDING ‘C’ on your phone, connect your phone to USB Cable ! (or 2+5 in new A2 SE phones)
6. Don’t Leave C through out driver installation.

You get a notification in System Tray ! Saying SEMC USB Flash Device

A new window should appear “Found new hardware wizard”
It asks permissions for to search for drivers for the device. Select “No, not this time” and click next.

Then select the option INSTALL FROM A SPECIFIED LOCATION(ADVANCED) and click next

Then choose “Search for the best drivers in these locations”, and check the “Include this location in this search”, now browse for the downloaded drivers.

Click next, Wait for some time, drivers get installed.

Now…….

Open the directory, where you unpacked the archive, In the directory, you will find a ggsemc.inf file. Click on it with the right mouse button, and then click ‘Install‘.

here is a video tutorial that’s almost the same as above tutorial, but with few steps missing, because my computer was already configured with some things ;) ! Download Video !

2. Installing USB Flash Drivers in VISTA.

Now Vista Tutorial, its almost the same as in XP. I can’t make vista video, but check out the XP tutorial, as both are the same also see images given in download. Here I provide instructions to install usb drivers in Vista.

Shut down phone, Re-insert battery, Connect phone holding C. Don’t leave C key.
You will get a notification near the Windows Clock in saying SEMC USB Flash Device Detected.
A Wizard to install usb flash driver will start immediately. (Found New Device Wizard)
In the Wizard select first option, Locate and Install driver software(recommended).
Then Select Don’t Search Online Option.
In next screen select the option Browse My Computer for driver software.
Then provide the location of USB Flash drivers on your computer.
Click Next, USB Flasd Drivers will be insalled, Your phone may start in file transfer mode. Don’t worry.
Leave the C key when it says finished successfuly.

Images of Installing USB drivers in Vista. Download.

3. USB Driver Insatller, Automatic Install.

This is the easiest method. The first 2 methods are manual methods. Now an installer is available, you can use it install drivers automatiall.y
Download the USB Driver Installer and Run it. This works both in Vista or XP.

Download !

Akshay

    great job there

  2. Peti says

    Thanx, but you should know, you were the one who inspired me, without you, I could have never got this far (to my first tutorial XD ). You’re the greatest, papi :D

  3. Lmbrt says

    Hi everyone,
    This is a moslty awaited tut, as I am looking forward to get rid of SEUS (just note that it is at 128mb in Add and Remove programs…). :-)
    Just two questions:
    1- is the link to download the drivers working fine? I keep getting a Bandwidth Notice…
    2- The tut PeTi makes reference to in SE-NSE uses a different approach and… different drivers? At any rate it is impossible to download them either…
    Humble regards to Master Akshay and to the new star.
    Lmbrt

  4. Peti says

    The link is alive all right.
    Akshay edited it, he makes the reference. :D
    If you can’t download them, then try using a proxy, or search at google.com, for sony ericsson flash driver…

  5. pzevil says

  10. Akshay says

    IMEI name and GDFS name don’t match.. that’s not a problem at all… chill
    its a problem in the IMEI list that Sony Ericsson produced…
    so don’t worry.

  11. Akshay says

    and what happened to your phone.. why is it not starting ?? how come all of a sudden it went dead ?

  12. ostine says

    1. Switch OFF your phone !
    2. Remove the battery !
    3. Reinsert your battery !
    4. Don’t start your phone !
    5. HOLDING ‘C’ on your phone, connect your phone to USB Cable !
    6. Don’t Leave C through out driver installation.

  14. lb85 says

    I get the same problem too, my phone is W850i

    Please help

  15. Peti says

    Then just install SEUS but don’t use it. LOL

  16. jarmerson says

    I had to go into (start/ r clk My Comp, select Manage, dbl clk Device Manager) and actually try to update the driver, then follow the tut. My problem is I cannot seem to get the drivers to be recognized as drivers. It tells me there are no drivers in the folder I unzipped??? Grrr, I will chk tomorrow for answers.

  17. Peti says

    I can tell the same, SEUS has drivers installed, intall it but never use.

  18. jarmerson says

    AHH, following instructions help. Didn’t hold C the entire time. Thnks so much. May need more help later.

    If you can’t seem to get the wizard to run, follow my instructions on going into the device manager and manually updating drivers. Rem to hold C =)

  19. user_121 says

    Can anyone help me?

When i re-insert phone battery and conenct while pressing c, windows detects phone and found new hardware SEMC flash Device pops up, then it displays error that hardware cannot be installed, i’ve manually tried to update the driver but it cannot be installed. I’ve recently done a repair installation of xp due to my comp mailfunctioning a coulpe of weeks earlier, however before i done the repair evrything was working fine with my phone and JDflasher. I’ve tried to search for the file on my SE CD and still can’t install. Please help.

  20. Peti says

    Thx u very very much

  24. fishbone says

    i have followed all your instructions for my w550i but still i couldn’t get the “install new hardware” wizard pops up. plssss help me

  25. Akshay says

    that’s bad. check out the video also.
    as soon as you connect phone holding C after reinsering battery phone should be identified..
    in windows xp..!

    Visita its a bit different.

  26. fishbone says

    i’m using windows xp.
    anyway, i managed to do it by right click on the drive>hardware>driver >update driver and i have selected the USB flash driver folder according to your instructions. but when i clicked next, it says that
    “the wizard could not find a better match for your hardware than the software you currently have installed” what has happened? do you know what is the problem here?
    by the way, when i remove my battery, reinsert it and connect my phone to the pc, the phone automatically on itself and enquires password for my phone to go into the phone status. this only happens if i remove my battery and reinsert it.
    please help me !

  27. Akshay says

    omg fishbone that’s a lot of problems with that phone.
    Installing usb drivers now is a hell.

    try once again carefully.
    besides i hope you have seen the video. the drivers are installed ;)

    else use some other computer.
    or use some other phone to install drivers.

    else you install SEUS. Sony Ericsson update service.
    but don’t update your phone. yes don’t update with SEUS.

  28. kevin says

    hey akshay…you’re a great person…im sure that this stuff works..but the problem is that i tried following the tutorial…followed da instructions….but wen i hold “C” and plug da phone into the usb cable…nothing comes up in the system tray…i unzipped the file and everything…after about 2mins…of holding the “C” button it goes to file transfer…would you be able to help?

  29. Peti says

    Try the previous post, install SEUS. (to install drivers)

  30. jenny says

    hmm so i switched phones with someone, and now i have the sony ericsson w580 and he has the sony ericsson k550i. i have an usb cable and an installation disc for k550i, but none for the w580. how do i upload files between my computer and phone? when i plug in the phone, i only get the phone card, and i cant seem to access it on my phone.

    thanks.

  31. Peti says

    The drivers you get on that disc are likely to work. I’m not sure about w580, but I know that my k550 disc had w200, w610, k750, w800. So install those drivers.

  32. Akshay says

    jenny just reinstall all that sony ericsson
    it works for all phones. all sony ericsson no matter what.

  33. arsenal says

    maa sony ericsson k610 wont turn onnn and the battery is fully charged it blinks a red light 5 times on the top wat shud i doo? add ma msn soo u can help please ppl

    There’s no need for that, just follow that tutorial, it will work.

  44. Peti says

    To flash back to original state you need the firmwares of the service provider, “rebranding”. An easier solution is to kill the phone so they replace it. I never did it, Akshay told about it. It is that you first make a GDFS backup, then use an mp3 file to Write GDFS. That kills the phone, and they won’t be able to do anything, they just give you a new phone. (at your own risk)

    hi mine is w200i it get suddenly swithched off i cannot able to switch it on what i want to do

  57. Peti says

    You can always try to reflash main and FS. So now connect the phone to xs++ and see what CID it has, according to that, download firmwares. Then use XS++ to flash them on. Then customize filesystem with a cda. Get files from seusers.com, topse.ru, share2flash.com, sek750.extra.hu.

    To change those icons, you need professional tools which cost pretty much, free tools can’t do anything at the moment.

    hi, when i run the DP Install program for automatic device driver, my phone is not connected. (I presume that this is ok as the driver is for the pc?) I am using xp. when I run the automatic installer, 2 lines appear. The first one looks good and says: ready to use’ with a tick. and then immediately below it, there is a line with a red cross and it says ‘install failed (unsigned). Could you explain why this happens?
    regds ed

  130. Akshay says

    what ? i am confused. In vista the ggsetup was a clean install with success.
    and you should not connect phone while running ggsetup
    try to re-install ggsetup. or go for manual install. :)

  140. Denrag says

    Hi there! I’ve been reading your website the last few days and I’m really impressed and thankfull!
    I need your help to instal the Flash Drivers. I do the procedure, hold the C and so on, but the computer does not recognize my k790i nor say “SEMC USB Flash Device”. What happens is that, later, the “USB Mass Storage Device” starts. So Windows never asks me to install the “SEMC USB Flash Device”.
    What to do in this case?
    Thanks on forehand!

  141. bhuvan says

    @Denrag
    get gordons gate drivers from filebase
    install them
    now connect your phone holding ‘c’ key

  142. sYkO says

    Hi,
    I installed the SEMC driver in vista, but when I press ‘C’ button and plugin the device it gives that found new hardware dialog, I followed your instructions and Browsed the ggsemc driver.
    It says that the driver is installed successfully but Windows Encountered a problem- ‘The Service Does not Exist’. Now what does that mean?
    I am so tired of this Windows Bullcrap!
    Please give me options- I am trying to upgrade W910i (For which I am getting this error)
    I was successful in Flashing my W960i prior to this.
    Someone, Please do reply, I am waiting for an answer.

  143. bhuvan says

    @sYkO
    well get gordon gate driver from our filebase and install it …its one click driver setup
    then connect
    or install seus
    dont run it
    and then connect it

  144. Sathyan says

  146. HELP says

    um
    i read this after
    saying “no,not this time” to the “found new hardware” thingy,
    and now its gone and it doesnt come back when i connect my phone in
    when i went to the device manager to uninstall it so i can make that “found new hardware wizard”
    pop back up when i connect my phone, but it doesnt.
    when i connect it, instead, it either says “a problem occured during hardware installation” and blahblahblah saying it might not work properly
    and sometimes, it says it is installed (i think it did it automatically) and ready to use
    i went to the device manager and tried to update the driver to the usb flash drivers folder, but it doesnt work
    and i kept uninstalling it and seeing if it’ll pop back up, but now it doesnt even appear in the device manager
    HELP

    well thanks for the concern
    but we are not really intrested

  163. dina says

    Okay, I’ve tried absolutely everthing now. To make it simpler for u to understand, “Found new hardware wizard” doesn’t even appear. Therefore in XS++, far manager, its either cannot open port, error, etc. but i did install it, somehow
    oh and my phone’s folder is not in jd flasher folder… W350i and if anyone knows what the phone looks like, the walkman player is the MAIN DISPLAY screen. I desperately need to change my skin I’m practically on my knees!
    And Thanks,
    i must be really annoying now

  164. bhuvan says

    dina
    check the cable…connect it again
    try cleaning the port…ur phone is not connecting….
    thats y this is happening
    get gordons gate drivers and iinstall it
    then connect ur phone
    get latest jdflasher from our filebase
    us it
    use pnx5230 script

  165. dina says

    hey.. dont say my port is dirty! it does connect to my pc.. but not to XS++ n far manger.
    And I did get gordons gate drivers and i did install them. I did get jd flasher from right here buddy.

  166. bhuvan says

    dina
    “”hey.. dont say my port is dirty!””
    lol
    according to your error its just that ur phone is not getting connected!
    try few more times…or tried with jdflasher?

  167. dina says

    I’ve tried a million times :(
    Now I think I will just PAY someone to change the freakin walkman skin in my phone

    Anyone listening??

  168. Akshay says

    DINA,
    You don’t have to PAY, you should have some friends, brother or sister, Use their computer and take their help. Am very sure, there will some geek near by you, just go him/her and ask help, they will happily help you out.
    And Installing USB drivers is the basic step, no idea what’s up with your phone. Am sorry for all that pain you been through. This is the maximum we can help via Text Messages, If I were in your home, I could have done it for you. But AM far far away from where ever you live.

  169. jamir says

    my phone is w610i and i have a failed connection to my computer. i cant download anymore… i think my phone had a virus bec. when i sent a bluetooth to my friend after she received it her phone has been shut down…pls help me….

    jamir
    se phone do not get infected by viruses!
    java basd platform
    but yea…autorun scripts in memcard or phone mem may get restarting or hangign problem!
    simply format both mem and yea first take the backup

  171. dina says

    Yeah I know that u r far away. But thats what I always kept thinking… That if I knew you you would just do this for me.. *sigh* how simple and un-complicated that sounds! lol
    I just said those things to emphasize how desperate and fed up i was getting.. Anyway thanks a lot u guys.. Helping people out the way u do..
    You guys are super cool!

  172. bhuvan says

    Lothian110
    what are u attempting to do?

  178. bhuvan says

    sahil;
    install drivers

  179. Lothian110 says

    i am attempting to flash the phone via the steps listed on this page.
    I believe I have the EROM problem with my w580. The phone is dead, won’t turn on, the red light behind the C just flashes. Tried a new battery already, ruled out that problem.

  180. Lothian110 says

    i connect the phone using 2+5, c doesnt do anything.
    it beeps that its connected, then a couple seconds later it beeps that the connection is dropped.

    I tried to install the driver manually
    in the device manager “Generic Flash Device” appears. I right click and choose update drivers.
    it opens up a wizard “Can Windows connect to Windows Update to search for software?”
    I click “No, not this time” and next
    I then choose “install from a list or specifc location (advanced)” next
    Then I choose “Don’t search, I will choose the driver to install”
    It then asks me to choose a “hardware type”
    Which do I choose? “Universal Serial Bus Controllers”? There are alot of options in this list to choose…
    If I choose USB Controllers, it takes me to another list with “Generic Flash Version 2.2.0.5 4/1/2009″ and several others, I choose Generic Flash Version 1.1.0.12 9/25/2006
    It installed and said Finish.

    I tried running again XS++ (im using v1.6.8), pressed connect, held 2+5 and connected the phone… beep for usb connection, then beep for connection lost…

    Still doesn’t work when I open up xs++ and it loses the connection after a short time in both xs and windows.

    Please help

  181. bhuvan says

    Lothian110
    dude its setool not xs++ which solves red light blinking problem!!!!
    use the correct software
    a few tries will get it done
    ur pc settings are right
    only if u have cid:53 phone then it cant be fixed

  182. Lothian110 says

    doesn’t matter. setools or xs++.
    the drivers are not working to connect the phone to the computer, regardless of what program i use afterwards. i can’t get the connection to stay open, the computer just keeps dropping the phone.

    btw – when i download setools off of this site, my avg antivirus flags it as a trojan.

  183. bhuvan says

    Lothian110
    add setool to exclusions list!
    and dude many times flashing softwares automatically removes hardware attached for flashing when u exit them for safety!
    so use setool

    i want to flash my other phone cuz it wont turn on even if i swap iwth a fully charged battery. It’s S500i Sony Ericsson. red light turns on blinks 5 times sometimes other times just once. weird… plz replay

  194. 310ccrob says

    ok heres what i did i got up to the part where i got thru

    check the “Include this location in this search”, but i left the other box checked too then ran it. Think my phone turned on while the usb flash drives were installing and wasn’t aware i was supposed to pull out usb cable. after it finished installing i can’t find the ggsemc.inf in the “USB FLASH DRIVERS” that i specified it to… grrr help!!

  195. 310ccrob says

    skipped the ggesmc.inf cuz i couldnt find it so went thru the setool lite thing with v1.1 and got this msg

    chipid; 9900, emp protocol:0301
    bootrom mode detected
    Flash props sent ok
    loader startup: executed
    CSloader refused to start GDFS services, error is: 29 failed, that is fatal
    elapsed: 5 secs.

  196. bhuvan says

    310ccrob
    first of all
    setool aint got any trojan or virus
    its just developer’s choice which softwares it uses to build up the programming
    u only have to install usb flash drivers
    get one from file base names as gordons gate flash drivers
    its just simple installation!
    not connect in setool
    follow 2+5 procedure
    now if u did the way i said
    and still u are facing this problem then tell me
    is the red light still blinking?
    if no then reflash!
    got the backup of gdfs?

    Hi Bhuvan
    I just realized that another gentlemen had the same problem as mine (posted much earlier) and you had replied to use JDFlasher due to CID53 problem, which also means I need to do the same right?

    Then I need your kind advice, does this means I just download and install the JDFlasher+Far Manager software, I can now proceed to delete those protected music & video files using this software instead of XS?

    Thanks again mate, cheers

  245. bhuvan says

    Daryl
    which phone u r using? some info should come even if ur phone is cid53!!! u may try jdflasher too anyways

  246. Daryl says

    Hi Bhuvan

    I am using a W980i, so as per my question earlier, do I install JDFlasher in place of XS to delete those protected music files? Or do I need to install and use both software for this purpose? (Apologies as I am an IT-idiot in this aspect)

    Thanks again & cheers

  247. gregory says

    i hvnt find d sonyericsson unlock phone

  248. splidge1982 says

    whilst starting the flash install I accidentally took my thumb off the C button. So I cancelled. Now when I try and start the install again the computer just makes an error sound and does nothing. What do I do to be able to start the procedure again?

  249. maxiboy1999 says

    I am trying to unlock my K700i and I’m trying to follow some of the tutorials. But I cannot install usb flash driver to my K700i. My connection from pc to K700i via usb cable in Device Manager is recognised as a prolific usb-to-serial bridge and not usb therefore Setool2lite cannot locate the k700i via usb. I can locate the phone on COM9 in device manager and can connect via PC Suite but when I set the port in Setool2lite to COM9 it cannot connect. XS++ will also not connect. Anybody know what to do.
