    Unplug the device, reinstall the drivers and plug the device back
    in. Assist the operating system in finding the drivers if
    necessary. Windows ME and XP do not require drivers if the device is
    set to the file transfer mode. It is seen as a USB Mass Storage
    Device. Drivers are needed for the NMEA mode for all versions of
    Windows. When set to neither mode, the device uses the USB
    connection to recharge the batteries and no driver is used.

    If you need more help goto http://groups.yahoo.com/group/eXplorist/ , join it, and do some searching. Most all questions can be answered here somehow. And for meridan and sportrac users goto http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Magellan_Meridian/ for help.

    Give it the coords and it might find it in a few days
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    Good Luck!

    My brother has a Megellan and he had the same problem. The first time I showed him how to get it to work, it took right off. The next time we tried, neither could get it to work. Be sure to consult the cosmic muffin to determine the optimum time and date for the connection,
    I have yet to figure that one out, works one day and not the other and is the same on 2 different laptops. but then that is my luck with adapters.

    My thought on your issue, I would uninstall the malfunctioning driver. unplug, reboot, checked for driver updates on oem website, reconnect the devicethen try to reinstall the driver. If that does not work you may want to try to use a powered usb hub with the power cable connected. ( some times the usb port on the computer is not powered and this can cause some issues ). from there I would see if I have the same issue when connecting the device to a different computer. If it is haveing the issue with 2 computers I would contact magellan for further info and possible replacement due to defects.

    One other source for drivers is http://www.driverguide.com/ . I have found drivers here that I can not find anywhere else including some of the maufacturers website. I had a CF GPS replaced cause of a defect and they replaced it with a newer version and their website did not have the correct drivers for the new card. I finnally found it here before I went nuts trying to learn Tiwaneese so thatI could talk with someone that had a clue
