Hi

Just intsalled xp on a friends machine and had a spare internal modem lying about which I put in. Problem is, I can't get XP to recognise it at all.
Its and ISA non plug and play. I downloaded the relevant drivers etc... but still can't get the system to recognise it. Are there just some devices that are not compatible with xp or is there a special way to add it. I know the modem works as I used it fine with red hat linux.

Cheers folks :D

Welcome Exit12! Unfortunately, if it's an ISA device, you cannot use it with XP. XP only recognizes PCI and AGP internally.

Problem Solved

Hi Just to let you all know. I have managed to get xp to recognise the modem. I noticed there were jumpers that could be set on the actual modem card to turn it into a Plug and Play. When I set these jumpers and re-installed it---BINGO, XP picked up the device. There is also a ISA Plug and Play sound card in the machine which has been recognised so I beleive XP doesn't just pick up PCI and AGP cards.

Thanks
