Question about Magellan eXplorist 210 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Computer fails to "see" the 210 when attached by USB

Although the unit says it is communicating with the host computer, the unit doesn't show up on the computer as an external device. It's as if the 210 isn't there. As a result, I can't delete old map sets or enter any new ones. We've tried it with four different computers and with a new USB connector cable, but with the same result in every case.

I talked with Magellan Support today (12/26/08). Their solution was to borrow a friends Windows XP system. I did and it worked. They DO NOT have a solution for Vista and claim that since Vista came afterwards they are not accountable for making it work on that O/S.

My Lexmark Z816 cannot communicate with comupter. Have worked through troubleshoot to device manager and was told USB Root Hub is fine but USB Host Controler not activated. How do I activate it?


Please follow the steps below to enable USB host controller:
1. On your computer, go to Start menu. 2. Right-click on My Computer. 3. Click on Properties. 4. In the pop-up windows, go to Hardware tab. 5. Click on Device Manager. 6. In the Device Manager window, expand Universal Serial Bus controllers. 7. From the list of USB host controllers, look for any in the list with a warning (?, !, X) sign (typically indicates a missing or improperly installed piece of software). Right-click on the item and select enable.

Another quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


I hope this helps.

Xerox workcenter 7665 communication problem


This was an issue with earlier models and is usually attributed to the "USB" connector on the bottom of the control panel not being attched securely. Note: although the connector is USB, it is NOT hot swappable and will crash the machine if unplugged while the power is on.

Power off the machine. Ensure the cable is securely attached and restart the 7665. Make sure when you turn it off that it is completely off before restarting or you could corrupt the system software.

Usb camera olympus fe-210 not working ,ill try manny times but nothing happens


Make sure the camera is on and pc is selected on the camera screen when connected to the computer. You will need to have PC highlighted and select ok on the camera as this starts the camera and computer to communicate. Once communication established the LCD screen of the camera goes dark and the computer should generate a removable disk drive. Check the System Tray (lower right corner beside the PC time) for Safely Remove Hardware. When you click on it, it should read "Safely Remove USB Mass Storage Device Drive ?:" If you dont see that, then check the Device Manager to see if the camera is recognized as USB Mass Storage Device. The camera uses the driver usbstor.

Scanner?


None of the above.
Both the scanner and the printer connect to a computer.

If you care about technical language, the scanner and the printer are USB clients. The cannot communicate with each other. The need a host for that. A computer has USB host device built in.

Desk top APC UPS ES750 not communicating


Here is an answer I got from APC when one of my client got the same problem as you did:

The error message would pop up if the link between the computer and the UPS is weak. I cannot rule out a problem with the cable or the UPS. In order to confirm the same please try the following steps which might help :

1) Ensure that the USB cable is properly connected to the USB port of the computer.

2) If the PC was powered on before the UPS, communication will not be achieved until you disconnect and reconnect the USB cable to the host. In this case, you need to disconnect and reconnect the USB cable to establish communication.

3) Some other software is polling your USB port for another device, thus causing the UPS software to temporarily lose communication with your UPS. If this is the case, you would need to shut down that application.

4) If you have any other USB devices connected to the PC, disconnect them and then try plugging in the cable.

If the issue persists, please visit the following link which lists few troubleshooting steps :

PC can't communicate with GPS unit for initial map load


It will NOT show up under USB controllers. It should appear as "GARMIN Devices" in your device manager. Mine is right under Floppy disk drives. Do other USB devices 'bong' up when connected and 'bong' down when taken off? Of course you have to have your audio on for that. The GPS should 'sound' just like any other USB device when attached or taken off. I find that GARMIN help is of no use. Forums like this have helped me far more.
