I reformatted my computer with windows 2000 (i previsouly had xp installed). After the reformat when i tried to install my modem windows could not detect it. I reformatted again with xp but still have the same problem ive tried it with 2 different motherboards and it didnt work on either yet the modem would work on my friends computer. I was wondering if you had any ideas. Thanks
