Virtual CD-ROM in Computer

After some research I came up with an answer. So thought posting it so that everybody can benefit out of it.
Let me guide you step by step on How to enable Virtual CD-ROM on data card.

  1. We will need a software called MDMA which is free to download and can be downloaded from here:
  2. After downloading extract the file MDMA.exe to D: drive.
  3. Once you have installed the Drivers for your data card, open command prompt.
  4. On command prompt type "D:\mdma.exe u2diag:1" without quotes and hit enter.
  5. MDMA application should come up. The Data card will be ejected and replugged. The drivers will be reinstalled and now you should have your Virtual CD-ROM. 
  6. You can also disable it using the command "D:\mdma.exe u2diag:0"

There are a lot more commands that can be used, and can be seen using command "D:\mdma.exe /?"

The journey of Asus RT-N13U router...continues

Continuing from my last post The journey of Asus RT-N13U router [User review] 

dd-wrt on Asus RT-N13U B1

After regular follow up with the Asus Customer Care, I finally got my Router replaced after 10 days. With a fear in my mind that I don't want to lose my router again, I began using it with the stock firmware and Asus Utility. The internet had no problem at all, but the Download Manager is Crap. I tried hard to make the most of Download Manager but I frequently kept loosing the downloads that had been partially completed. One fine day, I could not resist my self with trying the dd-wrt firmware.

So I went through a couple of tutorials, reviews to find the most stable firmware and some experience from past. I flashed my router again. And guess what this time I succeed. I have my Router running on dd-wrt, Also have Web Server, FTP server, Samba, and Transmission installed on a 2 GB pen drive. I have the Transmission client on my Android, thus I am not depended on my computer to start a torrent download.

So far so good....the router is truly amazing.
