    I'm no expert nor do I have 1 of those modems or Win2k;
    But I ran what I hope to be the right questions in an input field labelled search at Motorola and this is what I came up with.

    I'm guessing you have a SM56PCIDFV, if so try the driver for Win2K at;
    http://e-www.motorola.com/webapp/sps...Id=01M0yyK3NVV

    If it's a SM56PCI2DFV try the one at;
    http://e-www.motorola.com/webapp/sps...Id=01M0yyK3NVV

    If it's none of those, see the list at;
    http://e-www.motorola.com/webapp/sps...Id=01M0yyK3NVV

    Installation instruction is available at;
    http://e-www.motorola.com/collateral/SM56_DRIVERS.html

    Man, I hope that helps you.
    Good luck with it!

    :cheers: I had the same problem with my modem when I upgraded to XP. I have since got a USB modem and no problems. I could only think that the NTFS file system does not support this type of modem. Mine was fairly old.

    Why would the file system prevent the drivers from working?

    :cheers: NTFS file system may not be compatible with original modem driver. Me thinks?
