Anyone have any idea how to solve this?
I am not absolutely sure but I think the 1250 was released before Garmin added it into their firmware a choice of Garmin Mode and Mass storage Mode. If indeed you are given a choice, choose Mass Storage.
If not given a choice as I suspect then there are 2 things you can do.
1. Download the USB drivers from Garmin and install into your PC to ensure that you PC will recognise the device when connected to the PC.
2. When you connect to the PC and the device boots up into Garmin Mode i.e. the normal navigation mode, unplug the USB cable. The Device will say external power has been lost and you are given the option to shut down or stay on.
3. Choose STAY ON then plug back the USB cable and it will go into the Mass Storage Mode and show a computer icon in the monitor.
