If you have a driver disk with XP drivers on it then update the drivers through Device Manager.
 
well i had the same problem.. and the drivers i got are windows 2000 drivers..but it just doesnt work..
 
Track down their website and see if they have any XP drivers available. If not you'll need to email or call them to see if they're going to develop XP drivers for your modem.
 
I,m usins the same modem. It was recognised by XP Home Ed
and it's using Microsoft drivers 5.0.0.2 , which shipped with XP,
though it did work for me on earlier install of XP with generic
2000 drivers. When I originally ran the Hardware checking prog,
bfore getting XP it did highlight it as potential conflict, but
knowing Msoft, maybe I got lucky??!!
 
I also am useing the same modem device manager lists it as Generic 56K HCF Data Fax Modem. useing Microsoft 5.0.0.2 Driver
 
mine was recognized as 'Dell Fax Data Modem' or something. I just ran Windows Update and updated the drivers...
 
I forgot to say My modem is in PCI slot 5 and IRQ 11.
In Device Manager under the diagnostics tab what happens when you press the Query Modem button
 
I use a Diamond Modem and had the same probs, then I was told that XP installs it's own drivers (Generic) and you have to go into your modem disc... load and select (on Device manager) the driver that discribes your modem.
Now I only have the problem of the modem dialing after 3-4 attempts.but at least it works eventually.
 
yeah.......in the modem settings u can switch between these two
"best best data fax modem"
or
Generic 56K HCF Data Fax Modem.

k......where can i get Microsoft 5.0.0.2 Drivers?????
i cant run windows update.....coz the modem aint workin...LOL
 
Those Best Data Fax Modem blues...

I've checked it in Device mangler and it reads as follows:-

Drivers -C:\windows\system32\drivers\HCF_MSFT.sys
 
Modem Drivers ( Again)

Sorry folks, just hit the wrong button bfore massage done!

further to very recent post ( if it got there)

More info Also sez C:\Windows\System32\drivers\modems.sys

Provider is CONEXANT
File version is 2.1.2.171.021.003

Digitally signed by MSoft Windows XP Publisher
( What a ringing endorsement!)

Good hunting,

can't remember how I did it now........ but think I went through control panel> system> modem properties> and changed from generic to the one that names my Modem
 
do u guyz know..if those drivers are there in windows xp beta version..coz i think thatz wat i am runnin..
 
Conexant modem drivers

The driver versions i quoted must be official as they shipped with
XP home ed Official version. i never tried the beta versions
 
Conexant modem drivers

Have you been to www.bestdata.com yet?
Their Tech support page has a compatibilityy list.
Most of their pci ones are XP compatible.
Conexants home page advises using theirs as STOP GAP
only. ps, I know this message is probably stating the obvious.........

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
