Mapsource not recognizing Garmin type files

Hi
I have a fully updated version of Mapsource (V 6.15.3) installed on my computer which is running MS Vista Ultimate 64bit as the OS. When I try to load 'gmapsupp.img' I get a message which says '.... is not a valid Mapsource file and could not be opened'. Has anyone any ideas on how to resolve this problem?
Regards
Brian

    After saving a Mapsource file in gdb format the file will not reopen. Converting to gpx and back to gdb using Babel solves the problem temporarely.

    Operating systemWindows Ultimate 64 bit. Mapsource 6.15.4

.img files do not open directly in Mapsource. You will need one of the many freewares available on the net. I use MapSetToolKit. The file is available at http://cypherman1.googlepages.com/. You can find out how to use this software from http://cypherman1.googlepages.com/intruction_en.

    It is the operating system which is causing this problem. Right click any .gdb file and click properties. Under the General tab click CHANGE to display a list of programs you can choose from to open .gdb files.

I have lost my Mapsource Setup cd for my Garmin GPS


  1. Download MapSource software updater from Garmin. The version as of December 4, 2007 is 6.13.6, and the trick also works on Map Source version 6.13.5.
  2. Unpack or extract the content of MapSource_6136.exe
    downloaded using WinRAR.
  3. From the extracted files, run MAIN.msi.
  4. Then, run Setup.exe. Note: The sequence to execute Main.msi and then Setup.exe is important to avoid “Previous MapSource not found!” error.
  5. Garmin MapSource now installed.

I updated my PC Lenovo 300 C100 from WinXP up to Win7 . However , some driver not yet installed . Please help me fo PCI Flash Memory Driver , Network Driver, Video Driver , Audio Driver ... Thanks in...


Hi,

This computer is designed only for upto Windows Vista 64bit OS. What you can do is Identify the Brand and Model number of each component that needs drivers. Then visit the website of each component for their Windows 7 drivers. Should you find yourself a dead end, last option is to install the highest Windows version which is Vista 32bit or 64bit. TIP: Vista works great if updates are controlled.

This the link for your Lenovo 3000 C100 drivers.

You may also contact Lenovo Technical Support for options.

I hope this works for you. Goodluck!

I just built a computer with 16Gb of DDR2 RAM. What OS should I put on this baby so that I can actually USE all 16GB of RAM? I was going to go with 2008 Server but someone told me Windows 7 would support...


Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya.

Wow, 16gigs of RAM... thats alot!
Well, for you to be able to get full use of your 16gigs ram. You need to be using a 64BIT OS. Windows Vista and Windows 7 has 64bit versions. The main problem that you will encounter with using 64bit OS is driver compatibility with your devices. Hopefully all your components have 64bit drivers. I hope this helps.

Thanks and have a nice day.

Itunes 8.1 will not open on 64bit vista


If you manually downloaded iTunes 8.1 then maybe you did not select the 64bit version of iTunes. I know that it warns you before installing.

If you let iTunes download the update by itself then maybe it made the mistake of downloading a 32 bit version. I have Vista x64 and mine updated correctly, so it would be odd if it downloaded the wrong version.

Try reinstalling iTunes with a FRESH downloaded copy off their website of the 64bit version.
