Error - Unknown Device - Usb Does Not Recognize Garmin Device

Just recently, windows 7 home premium addition has stopped detecting my garmin device. Other usb devices such as my ipod work fine. I was able to get it to detect the garmin only a few times, it would try to install the drivers but the drivers would fail to install. The garmin was working a few weeks ago. Below is a list of everything i have already tried:

Rebooting (after everything i try)
- Turning the computer off and leaving it unplugged overnight
- Completely uninstalling all drivers and software associated with the gamin.
- Manually installing drivers
- Uninstalling the unknown device and doing a search for new hardware
- Uninstalling the unknown device and doing a search for legacy hardware (this produces a device not functioning (code 10) error)
- Reverting back to a restore point before the last windows update

Please, any help would be very appreciated. I am decently computer savvy and have always been able to fix any problems that i have. This one has had me spinning my wheels for days.

Nas Invisible In Network Map

I have 7 windows 7 computers networked via a gigabit switch and a verizon fios router. They all share access to an nas. 6 of the 7 display the nas just fine in the network map. The 7th, a netbook and the only one running 32-bit home premium instead of 64-bit professional, doesn't. I can access nas folders directly from the netbook using ip, but the nas doesn't show in the network map. More importantly it doesn't show as a backup location, so i can't backup that one machine.

Since the problem appears to be with the local security settings, how can the settings be adjusted when secpol. Msc is not provided in home premium?

Win7 Will Not Map Or Access Network Drive

Windows 7 64 bit will not map or access network drive on network when connecting wifi. On copper it works fine. Windows 7 32 bit works fine on the same wireless network. I have two notebook computers. Both run windows 7. One 32 bit, one 64 bit. The network is a belkinn+ wireless router with one switch downstream. I have a wd mybook world 2 network drive on the network and connected to the switch.

When either computer is connected via copper the drive is accessible. When the 32bit computer is connected via wifi the drive is also accessible. When the 64bit computer is connected wirelessly, the drive is not accessible. It used to work. Something changed in the last few weeks and i don't know what. I think all i have done is installed microsoft updates.

After Upgrade I Can No Longer Map Network Drives

I've just upgraded from vista business to 7 professional (64 bit). With the upgrade i can no longer map network drives to one of my servers (running 64-bit server 2008) but i can map network drives for my server running server 2003 (32-bit). I'm running 32-bit windows 7 professional. I cannot map network drives on my 64-bit server 2008 server but can on my 32-bit server 2003. I was able to access these folders with vista business.

Network & Sharing Center / See Full Map

When i use the "see full map" in the network & sharing center it works fine and shows my pc connected to my switch then to the gateway to the internet, but after the machine has been to sleep and been wakened the map shows a question mark between my pc and the switch? The question mark is labeled "unknown".

Thinking this could be some sort of trojan i have scanned my pc with all of the usual virus detectors and malware detectors but nothing shows. If i do a reboot the map resets to what i expect, but if the machine goes to sleep or hibernate the question mark re-appears. I am using windows 7 home premium.

When i restart my laptop, it again start searching and keep on installing unknown device. No external device (mouse, keyboard, pendrive etc) is connected to my laptop. Can we stop automatic searching and installing of device at the time of reboot? Please give me some solution to get out of this loop and solve the problem.

Network File Copy Hangs When Device List Changes

This is a problem with two parts.

Part 1: the first is that if i start a copy of a large file from a network drive to a local disk, and then, whilst that copy is happening, dismount a drive such as a usb drive, then there is a good chance that the copy will stall and never complete. The copy progress dialog remains, and continues to animate, however the actual copy process stops. This has happened ever since i installed win7 ultimate, and after this happens the only way out is to press the reset button. This leads me into the second part.

Part 2: once the copy has stalled, there is no way to cancel it, or to kill the process doing the copy. In the past, with winxp, i would use task manager to kill explorer.exe if something like this happened, but killing this "hung" copy seems to be beyond task manager with win7. From my reading, the act of killing a process is more of a request with win7 whereas with winxp it was a command
.
I have tried to use the taskkill from within a command prompt to kill the hung process. Taskkill reports success, however the hung process remains, as does the copy progress dialog. My last resort is to restart the pc, but when i do this, i get a warning about having to force the process to die. I accept the warning and tell it to do so, but the pc never, ever, ever restarts. My only option now is to press the reset button. This problem has been here since win7 was released. I'd like to see a solution.

1. The copy process should not hang, or if it depends on a stable device list, then the dismount should be forced to wait.

2. If i am an administrator, i should be able to force any process to die.

Are there any other options?

Cannot Map Nas Drive

I am trying to map a nas box that we use for automated back-ups and i get the message "the network name can not be found. 0x80070043".

The thing it we just connect by its internal ip address, not server, host or computer name. It says name can not be found, it doesn't have to find the name i am telling it the address. On xp & when we had win 2000 we just put 192. 168. 1. 220 and it would ask for name & password and then connected. I can browse our other computers and map a drive to them if i wanted but just not the nas box.

I can also see the web interface of the nas by putting that ip address in firefox, and it is working fine on our xp machines, so i know it is up and running. Its just on win 7 it will not connect. I am running build 7100.

Map A Drive In Win 7

When i try and map a network drive on a windows 7 machine from a vista machine it never sees the executable. It says i do not have permission. I have map many a drive in xp and vista but windows 7 wants you to belong to a home group but you can't if your not running windows 7. Windows 7 see the network and the systems. Vista see the network and the systems but you can't connect through the vista system. I have open up sharing in everyway i know how on the windows 7 system and it see the program on the windows 7 drive from the vista system but not the executable.

My customer always ran quickbooks through a map drive but not with windows 7. It just won't let you see it. I have talked to a couple of other it guys and they have the same problems. I try and troubleshoot with windows troubleshooter and it keep on telling me to start a home group but it says all systems have to be running windows 7. It is getting to be a pain. I like windows 7 and i like vista but this problem is causing me concern. Can anyone lead me in the right direction?

Win 7 Drive Map Issues

I have a win 2k3 std r2 server and 100 xp-pro workstations connected via the lan. On the xp workstations i map the l: -drive to a shared folder on the server therefore l: ="\serversharedfolder (\fs1aim root). So i need to run an executable from a sub-folder off the l: - drive eg l:aimun.exe. This works fine in xp!

I have a new windows 7 professional pc joined to the domain. I need to map the same drive and run the same executable from the sub-folder off the l:-drive. I mapped the l: drive on this pc. I can open read, write to the l: drive and it's sub-folders but when i try to run the exe (as in the xp pro example above) windows 7 stops and prompts me and says;

"The run.exe is setup to run from l:aim but you are trying to set it up to run from \fs1aim_rootaim please correct the network drive mapping. " I cannot get windows 7 to recognize the full path (\fs1aim root) as the l:-drive when trying to run executable.

Unknown / Unexplained Error

I recently have been having an issue of an error box popping up it gives no error code all it it also does not have the appearance of windows 7 looks more the gui from windows xp or even windows 95
Example: after clicking on camspace.exe i get an error box the window's label/name is "camspace.exe-no disk" and in the main body of the window there is a white x inside of a red circle next to that the error message reads " there is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive" target drive is "deviceharddisk4dr10".

I post this because i could not find a similar case online and i know that windows always generates an error code for reference, so i am wondering if this is a more complex error not related to windows or if it is spyware/malware.

An Unknown Error Occurred While Printing

My pc started running like molasses earlier this week, and since i got that fixed, it can't print to anything. How can i fix this? I've been using win 7 rc (64-bit) on a new pc (asus m3n78 motherboard, quad-core amd phenom 9500 processor, 4gb pc6400 ddr2 800mhz memory) since mid-july. This is a stand-alone pc connected directly to a lexmark x6170 printer via usb2 cable.

There are no routers or networks involved (other than the internet connection via a dsl modem). However, my firewall (comodo internet security) has reported finding (this week) a local area network at 192. 168. 1. 1.

The pc had been running fine til last tuesday (10/6). Then it started running like it was full of molasses. It would run ok at start-up, but once i had more than 1 or 2 things running, every little action took several minutes to complete.

The action center showed 3 problems, including something indicating that "windows 7 is no longer working" and something else indicating a chipset problem. First, i hit the win7 issue, which thought i wasn't getting updates. (I was, and had gotten an update just a couple of days earlier. ) I ended up downloading an "optional" update having to do with "hd audio". Then i went thru the "chipset" issue and ended up getting several nvidia drivers updated or installed. (I don't remember what the 3rd issue was, but i went thru it as well. )

Since doing all that, the molasses problem is gone. But now, i cannot print to any print driver - either my lexmark x6170 printer or my nuance pdf print driver. (The lexmark is using the 64-bit vista driver from lexmark. )

The win7 printer troubleshooter doesn't find a problem with either one. When i try to print to either one from firefox, i get "an unknown error occurred while printing. " If i try to print from nuance pdf converter pro 5. 1, the print task just disappears. If i try from ms excel 2003, i get either "your file could not be printed due to an error on docucom pdf driver on ne03" or "your file could not be printed due to an error on lexmark x6100 series on ne04"

At one point i found another lexmark driver via the microsoft website, and tried installing it. I think its name was something like "lexmark 5600-6500 series". That driver installed to "lpt1", and printing to it failed as well. I then deleted both lexmark drivers last night, and let the pc find the printer and install a driver on its own today. It found the "lexmark x6100" driver, presumably from my hard disk.

Unknown Virus Winoffice11.exe

I have a problem with windows 7 premium 64 bit. I notice i have a new file called winoffice11.exe *32 running in my task manager. This file is located in c:program files (x86)windowswinoffice11.exei am unable to remove this file. I stop the program in task manager, delete the folder but upon reboot after clearing cache and temp files etc i get the same file back. So i think it is a virus yet i cannot see to get any virus scanner to remove it. I have zone alarm installed, i even ran the onelivecare full scan and it was still there. I know this is not a standard install file from ms or is it?I do run vm on the effected machine.

Unknown Solution In Action Center

My action center keeps telling me that there's a solution for a problem it encountered. When i try to read the solution, it loads for a while, then it tells me that the solution could not be downloaded with missing internet connection being the most likely cause. This cause guess is obviously wrong because i am online. Yet, the action center only names the most likely cause and absolutely fails in further troubleshooting, something it was created for.

Anyway, can anyone tell me how where to get further information on the problem and solution?

Unknown Dvd Maker Error Message

Here is a frustrating problem i am having with windows dvd maker that no one can seem to explain. I have a new computer, less than a month old, running windows 7. I have been trying to burn some home movie clips on to dvds for various friends and family. I completed 3 or 4 dvds successfully. All of a sudden, during the burning process, i get to a point about 0. 3 to 0. 4 percent encoded when i get an error message that the dvd cannot be made due to an unspecified error.

Every fresh, new, out of the package disk i try to use ends up with the same message. The clips haven't changed, the filters haven't changed, the settings haven't changed, i've just done a few successfully with no problem, now all of a sudden it can't burn any more discs. What happened? What do i need to do to fix it?

Device Malfunctioned Error Code - 43 - Usb Device Not Recognized

I purchased a new computer with windows 7.initially my ipod worked fine with this computer. It still charges the ipod but nothing else. In addition it will not work on my old computer.

1. I have completely uninstalled and reinstalled itunes.

2. I reset the device losing all of my music.

3. I have gone to device manager and the ipod shows up as unkown device. I have stopped the device driver and rebooted.

4. I have tried to have attached to my old computer update and i receive the exact same error and usb not recognized message.

5. Other devices work fine on the usb hub, in addition i have tried the other usb hub.

All of the above measures have failed. This all started when i was having problems updating my music to the ipod, and i chose the restore function on the summary page of the itunes software, with the device attached, and recognized. Since then nothing? Initially when the device was attached after the restore option was chosen, i got need to attach to a 2. 0 usb  high speed hub, error message? It is a 2. 0 usb high speed device. I have reviewed other questions in this forum, on apples forums, all with the same results, nothing.
