A few days ago, a friend of mine bought a modem-bundled locked cell edition, it's Cyrus MC400 with Esia Max-D as the cellular vendor. On her laptop, O.S.ed Windows 7, she couldn't install the modem software (application). What has gone wrong, she asked herself and me.
Ahh.. cut the crap! and too suckin' long story to tell..... There must be trouble installing the modem or application software, which in this case, is the the unavailable drivers on Windows - it may happens to both versions of XP and 7 (I dunno 'bout any other OS).
It's about the driver installation. Check the Device Manager of the computer, when it's found for some Exclamation signs or Question marks on them, then, it is indeed, troublesome. Modem Cyrus MC400 is actually pretty nice, and also the interface on the PC, but when it comes to trouble? zzz....zzz....
Let's cut the crap, again!.. Here's how-to troubleshoot the modem error installation of modem Cyrus MC400 (I dunno, again, 'bout any other models of such modem)... Install for the drivers, by downloading through these following 5 driver packages:
On the exclamated points, choose Update Driver - or anything that tells to do something about it, choose each package you've downloaded (you must download all of 'em), one-by-one, untill the whole exclamation sign points have disappearing - that it means the troubles have been shot.
In case it comes with no change, the auto-running software must have an 'inducement' by entering the Windows Explorer (Win + D) --> Tools --> Folder Options (XP) or Organize --> Folder and search options (7), then choose to display Hidden file and Hidden protected operating system file. For you to view the containing drive of the Modem. You should find the driver or executable file, then just double-click to execute the installation. End-up here! If it still work not out, then, try to insert a multimedia card (micro-SD card) into the modem unit.
Well, if you can't, still, get no satisfying result.. you can leave me a comment to let me see what I can do about it. Since I, get sick about this suck, when I asked for help to the operator/vendor, they just told me to bring it to their hands. If I could have time or chance paying them a visit, but when I'm pretty busy.. what could I do about it, beside I tried myself to get rid the trouble, then I've found it.
..I'm giving myself for an applause :)
I don't wanna mention about the package of subscribing the internet over this max-D, since it'll be look-alike a promotion...in fact, I ain't got nothing to do with such stuff.. just for sharing the knowledge!

since I didn't take the photo of mine 'coz I've got no time, but it looks just like this, the Cyrus MC400 white skin, while browsing thru' int'net to pick the similar model, there're just the black skinned.
Hope that it is a helpful posting for anybody out there who has the same trouble.
