Hi, for now, just post the contents of lsusb.

It will be much shorter and we will tell you what to do next.

that's ok.

the system recognises that the device is connected.
Quote:
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 19d2:2000
Now, if you do,

lsusb -v | grep "Bus 002 Device 002"

that may reveal more info the other poster was asking about.

(grep will only display any lines with the quoted text.)

So, lsmod is next to see if a module is loaded for the device....

We'll cross reference with the output of lsusb -v above.

Your turn....

So I ran lsusb -v again, with the stick plugged in and searched for that specific device and here is what I think you are looking for:

"usb-serial" is not listed in modules.

the "option" module is not listed in modules.

what is the kernel version.....?

uname -a

I am running all commands as root :/ and I still come up with the same:

Quote:
guy-rene-laptop ~ # lsusb -v | grep "Bus 002 Device 002"
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 19d2:2000
Kernel version:
Linux guy-rene-laptop 2.6.28-11-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 17 01:57:59 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

(Thanks for your patience)

This is a ZeroCD device...you need to first remove usb_storage kernel module to prevent it from being detected as storage...

Code:
#rmmod usb_storage
the correct reading of lsusb should be 'ID 19d2:0001'


NB: you need USB mode switch to change ZeroCD storage to USB modem, etc.

That's OK.
<edit> Hurry_hui has a tip!
Have you tried to start the system with the modem plugged in?

I just wonder whether the kernel has a module for it, or not.

I'm not familiar with your distribution.

But the kernel is the kernel, right.

The system recognises the usb device.

Have you been able to set it up with the network-manager?

I noticed binfmt module is listed as installed, I thought it was responsible for serial conversion.

Your kernel is not too ald, but there may be a newer one that might have the modules you need.

Is it a customised kernel? Did you "make" it?

Let me know.

hurry_hui, I understand what you mean, I have read about that over at the Ubuntu forums. But if I remove that module, won't that cause problems if I have to use an actual usb storage device such as a camera, a flash drive or external HD?

Sorry, about that. I have edited my last post to include USB_modeswitch to ease [de]installation.

The serial thing is just for now.

You should be able to plug everything back in after the modem is setup.

The system keeps track via the device numbers.

so the camera and hd will have their own unique numbers.

Glenn, I got Mint fresh off a mirror last night, burned and installed it. I didn't change anything at all, except that once it was finished I got 232 updates to install.

I'm tinkering with the Network Connections as we speak. On the Mint forums someone says to try and grab the drivers from the device on a win pc.

I agree with you that the system does recognize the device, and there are two things I think I need to try to make any kind of progress.

First I will try and look on the device to see if it holds any kind of drivers. Apparently if there are I should be able to do something. BUt it looks touch and go from the posts I've read.

Second, I can go on my win partition, plug in the device and run an AT command through hyperterminal to have it detected as modem and not storage (AT+ZCDRUN=8, this command actually disables the autorun function). And then a whole lot of things, as decribed in post #8 of that thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1065934

But I am going to try and boot with the stick plugged in right now and I will report back in a few

Phew... I have my work cut out for me :/

Oh and hurry_hui, yes usb_modeswitch I will have to try that as well.

Thank you for the tip and clarification

I'll say!

the modem probably contains windows drivers, little help here I assume.

there is a wrapper, ndiswrapper, for windows drivers.
