pcaps,

A winmodem uses special software drivers to enable the modem, so it is the software that makes the modem function, the regular modem does not need the special software so it can work in dos or windows unlike the winmodem, it is a cheaper modem then the regular one, and hence not as good.

one thing to keep in mind, is that a lot of DOS programs do not recognize WinModem and may not work properly.

Spend the extra money and buy a proper model.
