    Hi

    Windows recognized the usb an show in device manager and show the safe disconnect icon but the device never show up.

    Hello,

    Indevice manager check for the drive letter and click on Start -> Run and type :(drive letter) to open the drive. After the drive is open check for the properties of the drive and see if it is heiiden or not.

    Sorry, The usb appear on device manager under Universal serial bus controller, but after some minutes it appear flagged with the yellow warning sign. I didn't notice this before.

    I just select, uninstall, uninstall and reinstall the Garmin USB drivers and check for hardware changes and give me "errors" installing.

    Another suggestions?

    I got to install the drives. The external disk (GPS) appear on device manager but I can't get a driver letter for it and of course not appear on explorer.
