re. distribution-specific: did you use the right location for your
blacklist file?  Not sure what's right in your case... I guess you could
restart udev and check the access time on your blacklist file gets
updated (ls -lu).

modprobe visor vendor=0x0830 product=0x61
(use the correct vendor/product IDs for your 700p -- you can use lshal
during a sync attempt to find the IDs).
