I'm slightly puzzled by this; I've got just a generic 14.4 Megahertz modem card, but my 660LX doesn't want to recognize it. What I did for my Jornada 728 (which does have a modem built-in, but I wanted to test) running CE3 was when I get the driver prompt, I put in "unimodem.dll", and do a soft reset, then it recognizes it. When I do the same on the 660LX, I just get the unrecognized device prompt on startup again. Am I missing anything here?

(As for why I'm messing with modems: I have an ATA and I'm going to make them fax.)

Can you confirm that said dll exists on the 660?

It doesn't display in Windows Explorer for either device (even though it works on the Jornada); I thought it was built into ROM so it wouldn't display, but it's been a few years since I touched CE.

Oh, and sorry for the double post, but a generic 56k modem *does* work in both without hitches. Too bad it doesn't have the dongle...

The fact the 56k modem works but not the 14.4k is kinda puzzling me.
