Tom tom 920 loaded with route 66 software ex china

Is there any way of removing the route 66 and reloading tom tom?. When I connect usb cable to load orginal TomTom (reistered and paid for) the computor doesnot recognise the device. I can find the route 66 file and am able to open it so the usb connection must be alive. But all I get on the screen of the unit when connecting as per Tom Tom is a picture the devise and usb cable withan arrow showing to connect. Both route 66 and Tom Tom help desks have no idea what I'm talking about.If this not possible is there any upgrades to route 66 that map outside major city limits?.Any help or suggestions appreciated.

To upgrade, use the website version of Route 66 Sync rather than the version on the disk or the upgrade file from the website, both of which do not work. The website version works in conjunction with Microsoft ActiveSync.
