USB Wmodem driver for PPC-6601

Dialer for Windows Mobile CDMA 1x or CDMA EV-DO

The zip has two files, I only had to use the .inf file though. You can use either a USB cable or the cradle.

Installation:
# Unzip the contents of the download from this page into a folder on your computer
# Turn on PPC-6601 Pocket PC
# Start PPC-6601 and run 'WModem', select USB, press 'start'
# Plug in cable to PPC-6601 and USB end to laptop (or sit the PPC-6601 in its cradle and plug the USB end to laptop)
# When Windows asks for a driver, point it at the directory where CDMA1X_USBMDM.INF is located

Running:
# Turn on Pocket PC (or your Pocket PC Phone Edition CDMA)
# Run 'WModem', select USB, press 'start'
# Plug in cable to PPC-6601 and USB end to laptop (or sit the Harrier in its cradle and plug the USB end to laptop)
