Driver for a fax modem on windows 7 - 64x bit

18 posts in this topic

Hello

Recently I've just upgraded to Windows 7 - 64x

I have a fax modem that is a bit old and only have the 32x bit driver which is working as fine, but not any more with windows 7 - 64x bit.

I've tried some drivers services like driver agent but also was not helpful.

I've goggled it but really was not helpful at all.

Please help

Thanks

There are thousands of fax modems out there. Could you maybe provide something more, like the HwID of it, or even the make and model?

RATS! I happen to have an Apache with the CD-ROM. All I found was (your exact modem) in H215DT5.INF (all the others, including the one in other post are for 9X/ME/NT/2K) for XP - in folder A56SP-RS (Conexant Chipset). It might be possible (using the Setup program) to "force" the install by using the XP-Mode. I've done that with Integrated Sound on my cousin's Vista PC and it worked.

Wanna give it a go? I could upload (if I'm allowed - check with moderator/supervisor first) - 2.75mb (unzipped)...

edit - Is this it? Driver/manual, etc here (XP is the highest supported, tho).

(edit again) _ NOPE - Driver is NOT the same as mine.

Hang loose, storm brewing shutting down PC - will get back w/you...

OK, did a check -

This one is the same one I have and this one appears to be newer. However, after downloading the "complete package" from Apache (the previous post link) it appears the second is for Win 98(?) and the 2K/XP folder inside is empty (prev. post indicated the single package was incorrect).

Go to the first link (this post above), hover mouse over "download", fill in the "captcha". A "downloader" will be downloaded - save it in a folder (e.g. "Apache"). Run it (nothing installs), decline installing any krapware, it will download the file to where you point it to. Click the "X" upper-right to klobber the "sign up/participate". Unzip the contents, right-click the "HXFSetup.exe", click "Properties", and make it "XP-Compatibility mode", "Apply", and run it.

HTH (as I said, it worked for my Cuz, but that was a different device). Also, for kicks, "uninstall" the "unknown device" before running the installer (may/may-not help).

I found a driver that might work

http://www.apache-micro.com/driver/DialupModems/A56SP-RS.RAR

XP driver should work on Vista/7 but there is none...try any of the others see if they install

Right click the driver in the device manage and click update driver software...then browse for the extracted folder root with all the sub folders and see which (if any) installs

Did you try what I suggested? Uninstall Driver, set Compatibility on Setup, then run it?

(BTW, I already downloaded the RAR - it has none, the original one from original link is wrong, this DriverGuide one is the one I have).

(lots of items removed in the following fro brevity)

;  MasterNT5.inf -- H215DT5.inf
; Version: 5.03.13
; Capabilities: Data Fax Voice Speakerphone
; Controller: HSFHWBS2
; Daa Type: STANDARD
; Codec: 20410
; Hardware type: D100
[Version]
Class = Modem
ClassGUID = {4D36E96D-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Provider = %Author%
CatalogFile = H215DT5.cat
DriverVer=05/15/2002, 5.03.13.00
[ControlFlags]
ExcludeFromSelect= PCI\VEN_141A&DEV_2015&SUBSYS_2015141A
[Manufacturer]
%Mfg% = HSF_MODEM
[HSF_MODEM]
%HSFModem% = ModemX, PCI\VEN_141A&DEV_2015&SUBSYS_2015141A
[Strings]
CompanyName = "Generic"
ProductName = "Sevel SoftK56 Modem"
Author = "CXT"
Mfg = "Generic"
HSFModem = "Sevel SoftK56 Data Fax Voice Speakerphone"
OEM_STRING = "Sevel SoftK56 Data Fax Voice Speakerphone"
GMI_Value = "CXT" ;Manufacture Identification
GMM_Value = "SoftK56 Data Fax Voice Speakerphone" ;Manufacturer Model
GMR_Value = "5.03.13" ;Manufacturer Revision
FMI_Value = "CXT" ;Fax Manufacture Identification
FMM_Value = "Sevel SoftK56 Data Fax Voice Speakerphone" ;Fax Manufacture Model
FMR_Value = "5.03.13" ;Fax Manufacture Revision
UIPATH = "CNXT_MODEM_PCI_VEN_141A&DEV_2015&SUBSYS_2015141A"

Don't know if this would work, but you could add the remainder (missing part) of the HWID to the string and maybe attempt an "Update Driver" (keep the original ZIP file just in case).

...and when you say "nothing works", do you mean the Manager lists it the same?

edit - ARGGGHHH! 32-bit drivers on 64-bit OS!!! Yank it out, find the Chip/ChipSet Identifiers (right on the chip/chips) and post them. You may be out of luck (it also has, if that's your photo of the modem, Mic-In/HeadPhone-Out) making it work. Worth a shot searching against the ChipID though - may actually find one to work.

One last thing you can try is turning on "Always install device drivers from Windows Update" and try updating your driver online in the device manager

Full driver package is available here:

ftp://ftp.wsisiz.edu.pl/pub/pc/drivers/modem/cobra_win_95-98.exe

Individual files (for inspection) are here:

http://ftp.slavka.kiev.ua/pub/programs/DRIVERS/MODEM/CONEXANT/56K%20CONEXANT/WIN9X/

I found these by way of searching for the correct INF name (S215DT9.inf) like so:

http://www.lmgtfy.com/?q=S215DT9.inf+ftp

HOWEVER these will not install in Win7 x64 because these drivers are not only not signed, but they are not even for Windows XP. You can see it is all VXD (the old driver model) and not a CAT file in sight.
