Motorola V3 RAZR – How to store and transfer videos – Step-by-Step Guide

One of the coolest features on your Motorola V3 RAZR phone is the ability to add videos, play them, and share them with friends. However, it is not necessarily the easiest thing to do. For that reason, I have put together this short guide on how you can take videos you have created or discovered (YouTube) and enable you play them on your Motorola V3 RAZR phone.

Here we go……

There are a few dependencies that you will need to take care of before you transfer the videos to your phone.

1. You need to install P2K Commander. If you have not, there is a how-to guide here.
2. You need to convert your video to the 3GP format from its native format in order to compatible with your phone. For that, there is a how-to guide here.
3. You need to have your video sized properly to fit the screen. If it is not sized properly, you will receive the ‘image too large’ message when trying to view the image or movie on your phone. There is a how-to guide on resizing videos here.

Step-by-Step Guide:
1. Start up P2K Commander

2. Browse to P2k --> a --> mobile --> video on your mobile phone. Browse to C:\My Saved Files\Converted or wherever you stored your Motorola RAZR compatible video.

3. Click on the video that you want to transfer to your phone and click on the ‘Copy’ icon on the lower right. The video should transfer to your phone in less than a minute generally speaking, depending on size.

4. Now browse to the videos on your phone and you can see the new video and play it. Congratulations, you have successfully added videos to your phone!

Guide is compatible with: RAZR V3, RAZR V3c, RAZR V3i, RAZR V3r, RAZR V3t, RAZR V3xx, RAZR V3m

How do you transfer videos to the transflash card inside of the razr using P2k Commander? My phone shows up in P2k Commander but I can't figure out how to access the transflash card. Any help would be appreciated.

Excellent question! I will be posting a how-to on the transflash card in the next couple of weeks!

I have PK up and running, but there is no P2k mobile icon with a star next to it in the dropdown in the upper left. The only star icon in the list says "P2k Phone System". After I acess this menu, it shows absolutely no folders for any videos or pictures...just a bunch of p2k's app files. Am I missing something?

Will this method allow me to transfer from my Motorola Pebl phone to my PC?

I am able to transfer pics via bluetooh, but the vidoes get "transfer rejected".

I just got a razr and am trying to put vids on it...i did everything the tut says...but when i try to copy the file over it takes foooooorrrrever and doesn't finish...for a small vid file it took about 20 min for it to get to about 60% then just stopped moving. i disconnected the phone, restarted it, hooked it all up and the file was on there, but when i try playing it through the phone, it says my videos/vcast is unavailable. before i tried this, it would always load, but i had no videos. any ideas???
