    ok, i need you to clarify a bit.
    When you insert a dvd/cd does the autorun start up? or not? what i need to know is if your CD rom is workig or if it is broken.
    Say your dvd rom's drive is e: if you insert a cd, and in the address bar type e:\ can you access it or not? If you can, the problem might be an autorun virus. I've had many results by running "Trojan Remover" which can be downloaded for free. Try that and run a scan.

Let me give this a shot.

1. Right click on MY COMPUTER from your desktop.
2. Click PROPERTIES
3. I assume you're using WIN2K so click the HARDWARE tab.
4. Click DEVICE MANAGER.
5. Under M700 it should be the 5th item down I believe. DVD/CD-ROM drives.
6. Expand that listing. You most likely have a yellow exclamation point there, yes?
7. Right click on Compaq DVD-ROM SD C2402 and if the option is there please click ENABLE. If your option is DISABLE please continue reading.
8. Right click on Compaq DVD-ROM SD C2402 again. This time click PROPERTIES.
9. The 3rd tab is DRIVER. Please click that.

(PAUSE HERE AND LEAVE THOSE PROPERTY WINDOWS OPEN)

10. Double click on MY COMPUTER on your desktop and proceed to your C:WINNTsystem32
11. In the folder C:WINNTsystem32drivers you are most likely missing redbook.sys and cdrom.sys  In the folder C:WINNTsystem32 you are missing storprop.dll (I HAVE BOTH FILES BUT MY FILE SHARING SITE IS DOWN.)

12. After the files get placed in the appropriate locations return to the DRIVER tab of the PROPERTIES window. From here or from the ADD NEW HARDWARE wizard of your laptop you'll be able to search for a suitable driver and barring some other crazy reason for this happening you'll now have those files. 

In case you can not find the driver files:

Good luck!

Gps has lost its maps, screen says can't unlock maps


There several reasons you may receive the message Can't Unlock Maps on your nuvi or zumo device.
  • Can you press OK and get to the Where To/View map screen?
  • Did you load maps to the unit using the MapSource or MapInstall program?
  • Did you load maps to an SD data card?

If one of the points above applies to you, please follow the steps below to clear the Can't Unlock Maps message:
  1. Remove SD card from unit, if applicable.
  2. Plug the unit into your computer with a compatible USB cable.
  3. Open MyComputer/Computer icon. (Mac users skip this step.)
  4. Right-Click on the Garmin drive and select Open. (Mac users can locate the Garmin drive mounted on the Desktop.)
  5. Open the Garmin folder.1
  6. Locate a file named gmapsupp.img
  7. Right-Click and delete file named gmapsupp.img
  8. Safely disconnect your unit from your computer to see if the Can't Unlock Maps message is gone.

1. Nuvi 1100/1200/1300/1400/1600/3700 and Zumo 665 users will open the Map folder instead.

*If the gmapsupp.img file does not appear in the Garmin folder, please create an unlock file for device.

A folder take too much time to open


Every folder in windows when "thumbnails" view is given saves file named "Thumbs.db" in which small photos are saved which for internal content, and also "desctop.ini" is saved in folder, sometimes some incorrect datas or very big ammount of information is saved in this file, try unhide hidden files and delete those two files manually, it will reset folder wiew and will become it faster. also you can create separate folder and move content in it and then delete old one but be careful dont use ctrl+a to mark all files, because it also copys those mentioned files and result will be same, you will still suffer from waiting folder to open, better to copy by drag and drop.
