    What's your modems type?
    Are you using wvdial from RPM or is it built from sources?
    I'm asking it, since I have an Intel EP 536 faxmodem and that one works with an extra package. Basically I never used to use wvdial but kppp.
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:
