Question about i.Trek M5 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

USB device is not recognized

I have used an "i.Trek M5" gps for 1 year on a Vaio computer with Windows XP (home) with no problems. Recently, I started getting this error message. I tried to reinstall the software. First I got an error message that "ActiveSync" was not installed. Eventhough, it was present in Program Files, I reinstalled it. Then I got other error messages that said the the file GPSview.arm920 couldn't be copied, but it was present on the computer.

I also have an Acer Aspire One computer, and I get the same error messages. Both computers have a working Bluetooth installed.

How do I get the USB device to be recognized?

Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Also make sure if your device requires "DRIVERS" or if you have a CD download and install that before anything.

Canon Canoscan LiDE 25 shows "USB device not recognized" on Vista Home Premium 32-bit


Point # 1 : Electronic devices are not made to be used sparingly or stored for long periods of time.

Point # 2 : 5-6 years is not 'barely' in-terms of an electronic device's lifetime (Given that the warranty for your device is about 1 year !).

Point # 3 : You obviously tried almost everything on the computer site of this issue, Its time to take your device to a service center.

Vega mp4 software does not work with windows xp only 98


I think your device only work with USB 1 and windows 98 can not recognize USB2. But windows Xp can recognize usb2 ports.
For solve yhis problem in windows XP:

Go to Device Manager. Find the USB section. One of the USB entries
has the word "Enhanced" in it. Select that entry. Do "properties"
on it. At the bottom of the Properties for the Enhanced entry,
there is a "Device Usage" box. It has values like

Use this device (enable)
Do not use this device (disable)

Change the setting to "disable".

My new computer WINDOWS 7 does not recognize my TomTom GO usb connection? .... not a recognized device? Used to work fine with XP


Does your Win7 computer recognize any USB devices? If not, this is a device problem.

There could be a problem with the cord. You may need to replace it.

First thing I'd do is download and install the latest version of Tom Tom Home.

Get it here: http://www.tomtom.com/services/service.php?id=16&tab=87

Let us know if any of this works.

Computer does not recognize it


assuming your using a windows xp or 2000 os, try another cable if you have one..turn the gps off, plug in the usb cord and restart the gps. if that fails, if the cable is connected to a port on the front of the computer,move the usb cable to a rear port on the computer and try the previous way i just explained.

if those fail, disconnect all usb devises connected to the pc and restart the computer and try again. (always use a rear port on the pc if you can)

good luck

Windows XP will not recognize Garmin 200W


I had the same issue. I would plug it in and it would recognize the device then it would disappear.

What I did to solve the problem was to first turn on my Gamin 200w. After it was finished loading maps then I plugged in in to the usb port. My machine recognized the device without any problems. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium. Hope that helps.
