How would I know if it flashed? If it did, would I still need to work this other problem of not seeing my phone out ... I guess what I am asking is will I use RSD Lite again other than this SPRecovery?
Dogdays, are you running it as administrator? I always had problems trying to figure out how to run something as administrator. If you type RSD lite into the search box when you click on the start button, then press ctrl+alt+shift and hit enter. you will be prompted to allow rsd. After this, does rsd recognize your phone?
Actually RSD Lite 4.6 does not play nice on a 64bit OS, especially Vista. Ultimately try to find a way to do it on a 32bit Win XP machine. You _might_ be able to play around with different USB cords/ports, but doubt that will work.
