Magellan roadmate 800 map update won't run freezes pc
I just received the map update for my roadmate 800 and the dvd will not run. This is the second update sent to me that won't run. I've tried on xp service pack 3 and was told to use sp 2. I tried on laptop with sp 2 and still nothing. I get a program not responding error. No autostart and doesn't work when I try to run setup.exe.
