The HSP Micromodem 56 is becoming too popular to suffer bad drivers. Only their manufacturers recommend them and most don't upgrade the drivers, but you can try one that's custom built. (It worked for me!)
CD-R/RW is fast replacing the floppy disk as the most common removable-storage medium. CD Burning's extensive collection of links can help you to make an informed decision if you're not burning yet or trouble shoot the inevitable glich if you are.

A technician in Georgia uses this to "Cover His Ass". I'm always on the lookout for a more polite way to state the obvious. Aren't you?
NOTICE AND DISCLAIMER
While we endeavor to offer service of the highest quality, we are from time to time faced with situations which are beyond our control. Please be aware of the following:
Electronic equipment may fail at any time without any warning. We use state-of-the-art repair techniques and stand firmly behind our work and workmanship; however, motherboards, RAM, hard drives and other parts may fail while in our care. Should this occur you will be contacted to determine how we should proceed. It is an axiom in the industry that it is not if a hard drive will fail but when.
Unless other arrangements are made you are solely responsible for all programs and more importantly, all data stored on your computer. Please back up all data before any scheduled work begins.
Software is a protected intellectual property. It is legally and ethically required that you own the software on your system. Often, in order for your system to be put back in proper operating condition, it will be necessary to reload the existing software; please do not ask us to provide it.
Viruses are rampant; your system will be examined for any infection and, if any virus is present, all work will cease until your system is cleaned. There will be additional charges for this service.
We thank you for your attention to these conditions.
*Note: I'm still looking.
