Modem or burner not supported?

By antnbit ·
I have a Yahama CRW2100E and a Rockwell 56k Data, Voice, Fax modem...I am running Windows 2000 pro and Linux Mandrake 7.2. For some reason I cannot get Linux to recognize the modem on COM2 although that is what I have the modem jumpers set to, How can I fix this? Also, are there any good CD burning programs that will support my burner under Linux.

On the COM2 issue, make sure that your motherboard is not also trying to supply you with a COM2 in the form of a serial port.

Good luck.

Maybe your modem card use the same resource of your built-in com2 port.

Regarding burner Linux support only SCSI drives, if you wish to word with IDE you must enable SCSI support for ide drives.

In Madreke 7.2 you does not have to recompile kernel, just use append hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi in lilo.conf to see your ide devices as SCSI.

To answer your question about using CD-R[W]
drives under linux, yes, Linux does support
these quite well, and there are a variety of
programs for burning CDs.

For a very helpful and detailed discussion,
and step-by-step guide to setting up, using,
and finding the software to burn CDs, see the
CD-Writing HOWTO at LDP:

I don't know your modem, but generally speaking, if it is an internal modem, it is highly likely that isn't a "real" modem, but a windows-modem. Even if it pretends to be a COM port in windows, that might be some com-port emulating stuff.
Take a look at
http://www.idir.net/~gromitkc/winmodem.html
There is explanations about how and why, and also a list of which modems does not work, which can work with some tweaking and which should work directly.
(In other words, a "real" modem connects toa serial port, internal "real" modems is really a card with a com-port, then the modem after that).
AT&F :-)
