Recently I changed a new laptop with 64 bit & Win 7 home edition OS, i found that there're some OS problem when i try to install the Mapsource. :shock:

at first installation faied dur to the software is not compatible with Win 7, than i try to fix it with Win 7 "Run Programs made for previous versions of Windows", it's work and the software seem running as normal, but not until i connect my Garmin 60csx to it to download data, once i pressed the transfer button, it resulting some serious error! not just the software on computer gone hang, even my gps also effected, after i pull out the USB cable n on the device, i found that all the recorded data inside the gps had disappeared..... ](*,) ! the mapsource also cant be operate anymore.... :ko:

is anyone here also facing the same problem? or anyone have any idea how to over come this issue? many many thanks.... :prayer: :prayer: :prayer:
