Question about Toshiba e330 Pocket PC
I have used my E330 with Navigon GPS software for almost a year with some problems, but minor. Since yesterday it won't accept my Rikaline GPS at all (when the E330 is switched on and connected to the GPS, it comes with a window asking for the USB driver (unrecognized USB...). Does anyone know what this is and how to solve this?

Firstly if you have a driver currently installed on your e330 for the GPS system, install it. (To uninstall - Start => Settings => System (Tab) => Remove Programs. One of the items in the list should be something like "PL-2303 USB Driver" Highlight it and click remove. You will probably be prompted for a restart to complete the process) Next, either reinstall the driver you got originally with the GPS receiver, or if you email me I will send you the one I have got. You will again need to restart your Pocket PC to complete the installation process. When you start your Tom Tom software, you may need to configure the GPS receiver. To do this, tap on the bottom right hand side of the screen, where the signal strength meter is and again tap on the signal meter on the next screen (top right corner) Next, click configure, specify your GPS hardware (I would presume you have a generic NMEA GPS?) click select, select your devices baud rate (again unless you know otherwise, and do consult your GPS receiver manual, I think the generic is 4800 and click done. Now you should have 4 options of how your GPS device connects to your Pocket Pc. The bottom option should say something like "COM4:" Select that one and within a few seconds the GPS Status should spring into life.
