USB modem installation problem

Facing a problem with both my mobile phones, Motorola V3 and Nokia N70, trying to install them as USB modems for mobile work.

The installation of both of them will end up to  error messages:

Cannot Install this hardware.
There was a problem installing this hardware:
Motorola USB Modem  (as well Nokia N70 USB modem)
An error occurred during the installation of this hardware.
Fatal Error during installation.

I have them installed OK on some other laptops, but not succeeding at all on this particular WinXPPro SP3.

First I did remove all USB entries on the Device Manager and restart, then I did the sfc /scannow, but no dice.
Then I did a repair install with WinXPPro SP1 CD and updated the system into SP3, but still no changed final result.

Any more hints to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Pete V.
