    My modem doesn't have sound anymore when connecting in OS X. - If I go to startup disk and boot into OS 9 the modem has sound while connecting.

    I often have connection issues and like to hear the connecting process in case I have to disconnect and redial.

    I think the sound stopped working after an update awhile ago.

    Does anybody know of any tricks to fix this.

    I tried deleting the modem scripts then restarted, but they did not regenerate themselves, so I put them back.

    I then tried deleting the PPPserial folder the restarted, but it didn't work.

    I couldn't find any type of sound options in the PPPserial plist files, or any other plist files or scripts.

    How would I delete and re-install the modem?

    Could my PPPserial folder be corrupted or would it be something else? Should I try to get that folder off another Mac that has working sound.

    I'm curious, do you have the divx codec installed?

    I know for a fact that divx 5.2.whatever for Mac(which didn't officially support Tiger) along with causing a screensaver bug (where the cursor stayed visible) it also disabled my modem's dialup noise(why I have no clue). I found that once I upgraded to the newest divx (version 6 for Mac was released a month or two ago I believe) my modem started making noise again.

    Wow, thanks very much. That was it. That is crazy that divx does that.
