GARMIN 2730 USB PROBLEM

Hello, I have a Garmin 2730 that I just got. When I plug in the USB cable to my computer from the GPS to download the drivers, it will not recognize that it is pluged in. I keep getting a prompt to plug in the USB cable while it is.
I tried 3 different cables so I know that it isn't that or my computer. Is the GPS defective?

The GPS is defective. Your usb/xm port is broken. You need to send it back to garmin.

How can i charge my garmin with the computer


Is Windows (?) detecting the Garmin (USB devise)?
Is this the original cable? Is this one labeled as "USB Charging Cable" it's will not work.
Maybe you need to install the USB driver.

Connect the USB cable directly to a USB port on the computer.

Windows XP will not recognize Garmin 200W


I had the same issue. I would plug it in and it would recognize the device then it would disappear.

What I did to solve the problem was to first turn on my Gamin 200w. After it was finished loading maps then I plugged in in to the usb port. My machine recognized the device without any problems. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium. Hope that helps.
