Instructions for Modem Blaster driver updates, to 
be used with a Creative Modem Blaster Product. 


This file contains instructions on how to update your 
modem's driver using the <Modem Blaster V.90 Modem 
Driver Update filename here> in Windows. The purpose 
of this latest driver set is to further enhance the 
modem's performance and capabilities. You must first 
"unzip", or "uncompress" this .ZIP file. To do this, 
you must follow the instructions below:


1. Find, and then Double-click on the <Modem Blaster 
   V.90 Modem Driver Update filename here> file 
   (use Windows Explorer) and it will automatically 
   guide you through the steps to unzip the file to 
   your hard drive.  Be careful to note where the 
   files unzip into, as this is the directory/folder 
   in which the modem update drivers will be located. 

2. The new files are now ready to be used for 
   installing your Modem Blaster modem. 

3. Please uninstall your modem from Windows before 
   attempting to use these new files.  Depending upon 
   which modem model you have, you can go to the 
   Add/Remove Programs Icon under Control Panel to 
   locate the modem's uninstall item.  

4. Next, go into the C:\Windows\INF\Other folder and 
   look for any files relating to your modem. You can 
   double-click on the .INF files to open them as a 
   text file if you are unsure if they do relate to 
   the modem. The lines of code within will identify 
   which device they are for. Look for references to 
   your modem's model number, and for the terms "Modem 
   Blaster" or "Creative". 

   Note: Users of *Windows 95 (version A), Windows Me, 
         Windows 2000, Windows NT may not have the 
         C:\Windows\INF\Other folder. In this case, 
         drivers will all be in the C:\Windows\INF 
         or C:\WinNT\INF folder. The drivers that need 
         to be removed will begin with "OEM". In such 
         cases, each OEMxxxx.inf file will need to be 
         opened and identified as a modem driver before 
         deletion.

5. Once the modem has been removed from Windows, please 
   first empty the Windows Recycle Bin, and secondly 
   re-start your computer.  

6. Once the computer comes back on, and your modem is 
   detected, please, when prompted for the installation 
   files (driver) for your Modem Blaster specify or 
   "Browse" to the directory you have unzipped the 
   files into. For example: C:\Modem. These new drivers 
   will then be used to install your modem. 


*To determine which version of Microsoft Windows you 
 are using, please right-click your mouse onto the 
 "My Computer" icon on your Windows desktop and select 
 Properties from the menu selections.  You will see the 
 System Properties box open and the version of Windows 
 listed underneath the words Microsoft Windows 9x.


Thank you for choosing a Creative Modem Blaster product.


NOTE: You may need to enable the Show all Files 
      option when seeking the C:\Windows\INF folder 
      under Windows Explorer.  You can do this by 
      clicking on VIEW, then Folder Options, and 
      the VIEW again.  It is at this screen where 
      you will select Show all files.
