This is the info from the Lowrance website
Begin with the iWAY 250C turned off, not just on stand-by. Stand-by is the default setting for the unit when powering down. Change the settings in the interface menu to power off instead of defaulting to stand-by when the power button is pressed. Connect the iWAY 250C to an available PC port. With the PC turned on and operating, turn the iWAY 250C on. The PC should make a sound recognizing a USB connection. If there is no audible sound, try another USB port on your PC. If there is a tone of recognition and the iWAY 250C is not displayed as a separate drive in My Computer, there may be a drive conflict. Change the drive letter of the iWAY 250C. Click here if you have a drive conflict with Windows 95, 98, or ME.

Set-up won't recognize that the USB cable is connected to both printer and computer and therefore printer won't work. What's up with that??


1. Confirm the USB port on the computer you are connecting your printer to is being recognized by your computer. The easiest way to do this would be to plug a known good USB Memory stick into the USB port you want to use. If you can read the contents of the USB Memory stick then the port should work. Remove the Memory stick, start the printer installation program (Make sure you don't the printer connected), want until the setup program tells you to connect the printer before you attach the Printer's USB cable.
If the printer isn't recognized try a different USB port, when picking a new USB port to try select a higher priority port, for example in increasing priority from, an external USB hub, a powered external hub, a monitor based hub, USB ports on the front of the computer, up to the USB ports at the computer rear. For USB ports on the same circuit select an USB 2.0 before an USB 3.0 port

Double check your USB cable and USB input on your computer. Try another USB port. It should recognize it with no problem. Also try to connect it with another computer...

I cant update my ipod 3rd generation


Connect your iPod to the Dock Connector on the USB cable. Be sure you are using the Apple Dock Connector to USB port cable that came with your iPod.
  • If your computer has USB ports on the front and back, connect to a port on the back of the computer.
  • If iTunes does not recognize your iPod when you connect it, try closing and re-opening iTunes.
  • If it still does not recognize your iPod, restart your computer entirely and start over.[1]

Garmin usb not recognized by windows 7


Has your PC ever been able to recognize the Nuvi? A common problem on the Nuvi 11xx, 12xx, 13xx & 14xx are broken connections between the rear USB port and the printed circuit board. This will prevent communication between a PC and the Nuvi. It can also affect charging.

Have you tried the unit on a different PC or operating system?

Navman ezy not connecting to desktop



I had the same problem here in New Zealand. Navman would be recognized using USB.

I tried it with Windows Vista and Windows XP. In the end, I connected to windows 7, it was immediately recognized. I had the option to apply a few upgrades which I did.

After the upgrade, it now also works for windows vista and windows XP

When I connect Garmin 705 to computer to upload data Windows says USB device not recognized


Device not recognized means the USB port is not activated, try another USB port and see if this helps, usually it does, at the same time, go to control panel, device manager, look for the USB drivers, and replace the driver for that USB port.

Garmin navi will not connect to computor so i can register


You may need to replace the usb cable that you are using to connect this device to your computer.

There's just 4 steps on how to connect garmin navi to computer.
1. Connect the mini-USB end of your USB cable to the back of the Navi.
2.
Turn on your PC and connect the standard USB end of your USB cable to the USB port on your personal computer
3.Power on the Navi and give the computer time to recognize the device.
4.Click "Start," then "Computer." The Navi hard drive should be among those listed under "Devices with removable storage." You can click on the Navi's drive icon to access your Garmin device

Computer does not recognize it


assuming your using a windows xp or 2000 os, try another cable if you have one..turn the gps off, plug in the usb cord and restart the gps. if that fails, if the cable is connected to a port on the front of the computer,move the usb cable to a rear port on the computer and try the previous way i just explained.

if those fail, disconnect all usb devises connected to the pc and restart the computer and try again. (always use a rear port on the pc if you can)

good luck

Computer not recognizing usb connected nav device


Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Also make sure if your device requires "DRIVERS" or if you have a CD download and install that before anything.
