HAMR 5600 Voice Modem Driver Troubles

  1. I have an HAMR 56K modem installed in my system (LG 6178BL). Every time a hard drive has to be replaced or for whatever other reason I need to reinstall Windows, I have a terrible time installing the modem drivers, even though I have a driver/utility CD that came with the system. One of the following usually happens:
    1. The modem isn't found at all
    2. It's found but assigned to the wrong COM Port
    3. It's installed properly but my ISP software places it on a different port from the one it's installed on.
    Should I try to find a new driver for the modem or seriously consider replacing it?

    :) Thanks, all. I'd totally forgotten about this thread. The computer in question has since been replaced. Thankfully, no more modem troubles!
