    hi,

    my problem is "i cannot switch my device mode from mass storage to modem"
    from: Bus 002 Device 005: ID 8888:6500
    to: Bus 002 Device 010: ID 16d8:6533 CMOTECH Co., Ltd.

    i have set my usb-modeswitch.conf, and give me the message below when i'm running "sudo usb_modeswitch -W" but it did not change/switch :

    for now, the only way for utilize this modem is by running ms windows on my virtuabox and enable it on virtualbox's usb devices. when it set, i can turn off my virtual machine and use the modem on ubuntu.

    Re: configuring cdma evdo modem

    Hi

    usb_modeswitch have a dedicated forum

    suggest visiting

    http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswitch/bb/

    submit details of how the device is seen from the command "lsusb"

    or possibly from

    Code:

    usb-devices

    whilst the device may be getting detected , the important bit is the
    message content and possible other info , from what i see the message content
    does not look like the family of C-motech

    alexfish

    Added : Sometimes VM ware can switch the device but can make life difficult for the usb_modeswitch (on the linux side) suggest mentioning this at the forum

    Re: configuring cdma evdo modem

    When i input usb_modeswitch, i got no vendor or product id specified. Does this mean that for the default and target vendor id for my modem, i should input them in usb_modeswitch.conf file?

    after small discussion at usb_modeswitch forum, now i can operate my modem properly.

    this is my usb_modeswitch config

    Code:
    DefaultVendor=  0x8888 
    DefaultProduct= 0x6500
     
    TargetVendor=   0x16d8
    TargetProduct=  0x6533

    now i don't have to run my virtualbox to switch it anymore.

    thank you alexfish
