Question about Garmin iQue 3600 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Cant get it to work

I have had this for a long time, and just decided to use it on my new computer. All of my original disks (data) I'm assuming is on my old computer. So with that, I can't find anyway of sync"ing. I can't get the PDA or the computer (Dell Lattitude D610) to communicate. I want to know if there is any hope for me to get these things talking, using things like "Dcoument to go," GPS and Mapping", etc. As you can see, there is a big disconnect from my Laptop in terms of recognizing my PDA. iQue sent me the following files (inlcuded below) and I have no idea on how to make things work. """ The program you need is called Active Sync. You can find this program on Garmin CD or you can download from Microsoft website directly. The link is provided for your reference below. and """ Hi Joseph, When you say GPS add-on, are you referring to external antenna, software, or mounting kits? If you are looking for external antenna, our ext. antenna with MCX connector is compatible. The link is provided below and you can choose MCX option from the drop down list. Regards, Support Team, So please tell me what to do, is there a place I can send it, can I pay you to fix it, etc. I would hate to spend money on anything new, when I think this is a good product. I will take any advice and or files and go for it! Thanks, Joe 520-850-8580

If this is an IQue 3600 then you will need to install the Palm Desktop from your original IQue disk in order to sync with your new laptop. The Microsoft active-sync is for a PDA using Windows (Garmin M3 and M5 are windows based PDA w/GPS).

When starting the laptop, it goes into start up repiar and then says it cannot repair the computer. Trying various routes to fix this, it just loops to the same start up problem.

How are (were) you trying to repair? And why? The answers to these questions would have helped, but if you selected "repair" from the menu on the XP disk you will probably have little luck. I suggest (assuming you are using an original setup disk) putting the setup disk in the drive, and reboot. Select new installation, and format drive, and it should work. All this also assumes you have a backup of your data! If you do not have a backup, you just learned an expensive lesson. It can usually be copied from the drive, but it takes time, special adapters and software to do this. I hope this helps.

TIPS To Protect Your Data When Selling Your pc

Sometimes you end up selling their equipment or give rise to dismiss. There may be a useful machine, but decided to upgrade to something a little faster. The only big concern for many when it comes to selling a computer, what happens to the <b>data </b>on the machine. You may have files or important documents that you do not want others to see. Find out what you can do to protect your old <b>data</b>.<br /> <br /> You can reformat the disk. This means that you take all the files on the machine and remove them so that the reader will return to a virgin state. The advantage is that your <b>data</b> is gone, but the downside is that the operating system has also disappeared.<br /> <br /> You can use the Windows operating system CD, and download it again. What is this destructive if you are installing is to remove all the files and put the car back, was when it was originally purchased. Your <b>data </b>should be gone.<br /> <br /> Another option is to just delete the stuff you do not want others to find on your disk. To keep those technically inclined to <b>find deleted data</b>, filling the disk with media files and delete them again and again. In this way, it is more difficult to find the <b>old data</b>, if not impossible.<br /> <br /> You can get a free program called SDelete that is made for this purpose. Will permanently remove a file instead of leaving traces on the disk. In this way, you can feel comfortable getting rid of things without affecting the operating system installation.<br /> <br /> Another option is to simply buy a new computer disk when you sell. He is the only way to protect 100% of your <a href=""><b>data</b> </a>because you still have the old disk.

I will assume that you have not stolen the computer.

Remove the disk-drive, and connect it to another computer.

Copy all your data-files to the other computer, and burn CD/DVD disks,
to make a backup of your files.

Reconnect the disk-drive into the HP.

Take the original "system restore" CD-ROMs, and reinstall Windows, to return it to "factory-fresh" condition.

Reload your data files from the CDs/DVDs.

Want to install new WD hard drive into my old computer

You say you see data on disks on your existing system, yet they appear blank when trying to install? Please try to dig a little deeper and find your setup file. Data wouldn't disappear unless your running NTFS now and the disks are FAT.

Win98 hds in win xp dont show other program says not formatted

you will need to revert back to the master/slave setting.  As slave/slave neither disk will be the main controller. Try reverse the master disk to the slave, and the slave to master, as it may be that the controller has a fault which is why you were having the original win98 problem.  Let me know how you get on

How to transfer OS and data to newer Poweredge server

The new RAID controller should read the data from the drives and work without difficulty. You will need to transfer all drives at the same time. Be sure to put the drives in the same spot in the new server.

Here are the bad news parts:

1. Your data is at risk. Make sure you do a good backup before trying this.

2. It is far more likely that your performance problems come from disk access or memory than the actual processor. If this is the case, then you probably won't be helping yourself with the migration. If you haven't already done so, analyze what is causing your performance bottleneck to make sure you are going in the right direction.

I have a working Dell Poweredge 2650 with 2 x Xeon 1.8Gig processors, 5 x 36GB hard disks, running Windows 2003 Server. I have recently purchased a newer Poweredge 2650 with the same configuration except...

You should be able to do this by moving the drives all at once ALL DRIVES MUST BE PLACED IN THE SAME SLOTS 0,1,2,3,4, do not mismatch else it will be a nightmare ............HOWEVER BACKUP your data up if you are going this route,on paper it might sound like a winner,however not all that glitters is gold.controllers though they might be the same have different firmware which allow them to do different things,so if you are going to this the os drive raid 0 or 1 must be two seperate is drives.once this done,how is your raid set up for the other drives once you have a good back up to restore if there is any complication,move the over in the same order,remember POWER DOWN BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT THIS .PS REBUILDING TAKES FOREVER.
