Old modem compatibility with XP

  InCog 17:27 20 Feb 2003

I've just installed XP Pro and am keen to get the fax facility working. I tried to load the Motorola 56k PCI modem software but I got scared off by the XP warning about the modem software not having been tested. I haven't used the modem for ages since I got broadband and I doubt that it's compatible since it's about 3 years old, anyway. Can I download XP compatible software from the Motorola website

I havn't checked the motorola website but try it anyway it may work. if it doesn't you can uninstall it again from device manager (by right clicking my computer/properties hardware device manager then find the modem listed and go to the driver tab within it.

Lots of drivers have not been tested by Microsoft but work OK

Hope this helps.
