usb-modeswitch: A mode switching tool for controlling 'multi-mode' USB devices.1

Package available in: [trunk]

More and more USB devices (especially high-speed WAN stuff, based on cell phone chipsets which are able to change their USB connection mode) have their MS Windows drivers onboard; when plugged in for the first time they act like a flash storage and start installing the driver from there. After installation (and on every consecutive plugging) the driver switches the mode internally, the storage device vanishes (in most cases), and a new device (like an USB modem) shows up. Modem maker "Option" calls that feature "ZeroCD (TM)" since it eliminates the need for shipping a separate driver carrier
