unfortunately this is not a Huawei, those are by now "wellknown" 
headaches. It some sort of unidentified chinese item sold by some 3g 
network providers. so far no luck whasoever. The issue is that if I 
"eject" it it does not get identified as a modem, it just returns as a 
scsi-drive "CD" again... drives me nuts as I NEED this to work for a 
client. Several of them actually...
