dammit !! what a pita! I uninstalled both the modem and camera software, then reinstalled the modem software. nada. Then I tried a system restore (3 different restore points, one just the day before I installed the camera software), still nada.
well, now the software says that it cant connect to 'mir' ... whatever that is...and I see that it is trying to dial out (!!) via the internal Lucent modem ! Keep in mid that I've got an ADSL line thru the Thomson USB modem. The modem software now only gives me one modem option, the internal Lucent. Grrr. Worse, it keeps trying to dial the number of my old service provider when I lived in Switzerland last year (even though I uninstalled their software)
I've attempted to go in thru control panel and adjust the modem settings there, but the damn Lucent modem is always selected, and the ADSL is deselected ... no matter if I save the changes, it always switches back to Lucent and attempts to dial thru my USB modem. The computer recognizes that the modem is connected via USB, but thats about all.
I'm not going to use that POS Sony software for DL my pics, I'll just use the camera as an extra drive, so that is not an issue ... I just want my internet connection back ! (I'm also locked into a contract with them and their 'helpdesk' has been no help at all')
Please help !!
