Do You Know Of Any Drivers Or The Entire Software Package That Is Compatible With My EZ Media Data/Fax/Voice PCI Modem Card From The Data I Have Given That Will Work?

Hello. I have a question to ask you.

I have the EZ Media Fax Modem Internal PCI V.92/56Kbps Microsoft/Speakerphone PCI card. The model number for this data/fax modem is: It-Mi201 (red box). This PCI card came with a CD-ROM driver titled: BVRP (www.bvrp.com) Classic Phone Tools v.92/56K PCI Modem Data/Fax/Voice Version: 4.60.2. It contains Acrobat Reader, Add Web, Callserve IP Phone, Modem On Hold, Net Accelerator, Virtual CD, Modem Driver for Windows 98/ME/2000/XP, Linux, and a Modem Manual.

Now, I have attempted to install this driver on my desktop Windows 7 64-bit operating system after installing this hardware in my available PCI slot. I get a message that states within the install process stating, "Nothing!!!" and it never installs. I have set the Compatibility Mode to "Windows XP Service Pack 2" and "Run as Administrator" privileges boxes checked under properties for the "Setup.exe" file on the software STILL receiving the same message and unable to install the driver/software.

More specifics on this Internal data/fax/voice modem is that the package reads:
-"Get online with Intel Modem Chipsets V.92 and V.90", "V.92 Hardware Solution".
-Hardware Interface: 1 RJ-11 jack for line connection, 1 RJ-11 jack for phone connection, 32-bit PCI Bus host controller.
- System Requirements: Support Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP/Linux OS, Operating system on a MMX 200 MHz-based computer with 64 MB RAM or equivalent CD-ROM driver.
-Power Requirements: PCI +5V, PCI +3.3V, or Vaux +3.3V

I have attempted to go to the manufacturer EZ media (http://www.ezmedia.com/) and all I get is DIFFERENT products like computer editing hardware and software tools . It seems they do not have I have links of any kind to data/fax/voice PCI card modem products or downloads any longer.  I have been to the website listed on the CD-ROM (www.bvrp.com) and any of their links redirect me to the Avanquest.com website where they provide me a few communication tool products that I do not need to purchase at a steep cost for compatible software. I have tried the Intel website for Intel modems and they state that they no longer support Intel modems (http://www.intel.com/support/network/modemchipsets/sb/CS-030493.htm).          

In my Windows 7 64-bit Device Manager, it now shows "PCI Simple Communications Controller" with a yellow triangle and exclamation mark inside the triangle under "Other Devices". Under "Properties" it states, "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28) There is no driver selected for the device information set or element. To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver." I have used the Windows 7 Update Driver option and it cannot find a driver.

I am not sure of the reason why the software will not install on my Windows 7 64-bit operating system when set to "Windows XP Service Pack 2" compatibility mode? Any ideas what is going on here? Do you know of any drivers or the entire software package that is compatible with this data/fax/voice PCI modem card from the data I have given above that will work?

I feel if I can find something that is equivalent or at least compatible with even Windows Vista, I should have no issues with Windows 7. Please let me know too.

Please reply.    

Thank you!

The modem is made by innocom. Bad news is there are no 64-bit drivers for this device. You need a new modem or you need to downgrade to a 32-bit OS. A new modem would be cheaper.
Here's a cheap modem that support 64-bit 7.

@ ve3ofa & jamietoner:

Hello. Nice to meet you both!

Thanks for your comments.

I have first decided to try ve3ofa's answer first and found his method 'freer' to perform than having to go out and buy another data/fax/voice modem PCI card again. I would have to go to jamietoner's response if ve3ofa's failed me. I will say that I paid a pretty penny for the one I have now. I see from the weblink provided by ve3ofa that it shows an Intel 536EP driver I needed that YES supports 64-bit versions of Windows I just learned here -- what I need and why I am having issues. However, I see by my WOT rating that ve3ofa's weblink is very poorly rated and to stay away. I therefore has enough data to go on and searched myself (Googled) and found a reputable site (C|Net; website: http://download.cnet.com/Intel-R-536EP-Modem/3000-2109_4-103876.html) that offers drivers for both the 32&64-bit versions. I downloaded it to my desktop, unzipped the zip file into a newly created folder, and then went into my Device Manager and pointed to the newly created folder and sure enought, it accepted and provided me with a driver for this  data/fax/voice modem PCI card. Done!    

Thanks for both your responses!
