    Not detected by USB port - Garmin

    Hello


    I have a Garmin Forerunner 210 which has been driving me insane. It used to work fine and sync perfectly in the start, however it doesnt anymore.

    I am using the Garmin Express program to sync as it is supposted to. However, it cannot detect/add my device. Nor can windows. It doesnt enter Mass storage mode, and disk management doesnt detect it either. However, it just goes into charging mode. Device itself works perfectly and tracks HR/GPS etc., but it is not detected as a storage device by the pc.

    Things i've tried.
    - Multiple Pcs with the newest Garmin Express (windows 10)
    - Reinstall/clean install of Garmin Express.
    - Cleaned the watches contacts/connection points etc.
    - Reset/hard reset the watch
    - Garmins suggestion on forcing software mode on the watch. (Turn it off and hold START/STOP while plugging into USB -> Just goes into charging again)


    ANY help is appreciated. Comments, suggestions and certainly solutions *Biggrin

    Nokia Lumia 830 and watch Garmin Epix

    When I try connecting with Bluetooth watch Garmin Epix and Nokia Lumia 830 wp10, watch very quickly freezing. Nokia Lumia 830 is on Garmin list of compatible mobile phones who should work with Garmin Epix. I doubt that my wp10 is missing some update or
    this update is not given for my region (Croatia). My question is for Microsoft - can you doo something about this problem. Before I have android phone and watch worked fine with him.

    Not detected by USB port - Garmin

    Since it failed on many PC's, probably not the PC itself
    • Have you tried different USB 2.0 ports and on different machines. Some devices do better with 2.0 (even tho 3.0 is supposed to be backward compatible)
    • Tried a different USB cable?
    • Do you know if there's ever (how recent?) there's been a firmware update to your Garmin and can you see what version it runs? (I'd guess the Garmin tool on the PC would manage/report on this if any info to be found). Check with Garmin if more recent? Or if you think problem may have started after an update if you can downgrade the firmware?
