Default 5530 will not install . . - 03-26-2009, 11:09 PM

Hey there,

I have an issue which I cannot resolve,

My little brother delivered me his mini 9 with a virus/trojan.
After a few hours of trying to remove this virus I decided to re-install the OS.
Everything went as it should untill I tryed to install the dell/ericsson 5530 modem.


The cd with drivers/applications delivered with the mini 9 does not contain the drivers for the 5530.
Only the vodafone ( 2x ) and the ericsson application is to be found. But when I install the vodafone app. it does notwork.
" no modem available ".

So I visited the support website from dell to download the drivers, drivers pakadge found, R197332, tryed to install > result = error.
When the driver install program runs, I can see that it tryes to install the various components inside the 5530 but everyone fails with the message that there is no INF inside the folder.

When I look into the folder I can only see a text file and a installer progam, no drivers.

I talked to dell tech for +1hr but they could not come up with a solution for this. Tryed the A0.1 and the A0.0 but no luck.

Can anyone get me out of this problem? I really hope so




Mini 9 dutch vodafone version.

The same happens with me. I also get the INF error and the installation won't proceed.

I'm trying with nlited versions of win xp home (the one that came with my mini 9). I made sure that I keep the modem drivers and modem support, but the last item of the installation (specifically the dell wireless 5530 hspa mobile broadband minicard pc sc slot) doesn't find the INF files it needs and won't install.

Did you get a workaround on this?
