Default Mini 9 with Vodafone, please help - 03-28-2009, 11:34 AM


I have a request, I allready posted a question regarding the dell 5530 hsdpa module.
It is impossible to install this item, drivers fail to install properly.

Could someone, with a Mini 9 with Vodafone please check the device tree on his mini9 en tellme in what catagorie's the 5530 is present?

Sofar I was able to install the 5530 in the following catagories :

Network with driver d553nd5.sys
Ports - com3 with drivers d550card.sys d553cm.sys d553cmnt.sys
Ports - com 4 GPS with driver d553gps.sys
USB controller - with drivers d553bus.sys d553wh.sys d553whnt.sys

The ones I am unable to install are

5530 HSPA Mobile Broadband mini pc card PS sc port
5530 HSPA Mobile Broadband mini pc card modem
5530 HSPA Mobile Broadband mini pc card modem 2

Could someone please check where these 3 devices are listed in the device tree ?

Other ideas also welcome . .

Mini 9 is running on PLiek XPLite ( XP Pro )

When I check the driver folder in system 32, I find the drivers for all components.

But when I try to install the missing components I get the message : ( translation ) There was an error in installing this device, The needed section can not be found in the INF file

I am trying to get this wright for3 days now, please somebody . . . . . H E L P M E :roll:

Thanks in advance,


PS: I used the drivers listed here : http://redirectingat.com/?id=258X408&ur ... 30_GPS.zip
