Alright I just become part of this problem after ordering the cheapest cable online from Amazon.com. I found a GPS that best mets my needs and does not have all of the bells and whistles.
The Garmin eTrex H uses a Rs-232 connect (serial) and a propriatary connector to the device. I wanted to convert to USB because I haven't had a serial port in the last 5 years on any of my home built PCs.
I was reading some of your posts and you mention that there is a number on the inside, but not sure where it is. I was able to shine a flashlight though the casing and there was this listed "Z12.000". That number was located on on a silver object that was oval shaped and rasied slightly off of the board.
I was looking at your other posts and tried all of the drivers on this site:
There was only one that slightly worked, but then failed in the end which was this CH341SER.ZIP file. I hope this is the correct error message form the log file:
Fault bucket 945334442, type 5
Event Name: PnPDeviceProblemCode
Cab Id: 0
These files may be available here:
Let me know what else I can do find the driver and I will do it. I can provide the files that were added on the small disk, but none of them appear to work.
My desktop is a 64 bit Vista Ultimate edition.
