|I am trying to install some GPS software off the disk supplied but it can not find my "C" drive.|
I click on "start" and "explore" and I find
3 1/2 Floppy (A
The GPS CD in (D

BackUp Drive (f
Main Drive (I
I have an external Hard drive F with 316GB free on 465 GB and
Main Drive I with 55GB Free on 149GB
I got this answer from Garmin but I can't make it work. Perhaps I am using a period at the end of my comouter name or some other step I am missing?
I got this instruction from Garmin but I still may not be getting the steps correctly:
You can try this. It uses a Windows command called Net Use. It allows you to map a virtual drive to a specific folder on a computer.
How to use it:
Create a new folder and give it a name. For example Monkeys
Get the name of your computer. Right click on My Computer/Computer, select Properties, select the Computer Name tab.
Open a command prompt by going to the Start menu, selecting Run then entering cmd. For Vista, just type cmd.
Type net use desired_drive_letter: \\computername\drive_the_folder_is_on$\folder_name
net use C: \\OCC20148\C$\monkeys created a C drive on my computer using the Monkeys folder I created.
Run the Trip and waypoint manager disk again.
My silly questions include:
Where should I create the "Garmin" folder?
I have a computer name. something with numbers and codes so I tried to cut, copy and paste the name after the black box opened
I found my "Garmin" folder which has this address:
I:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Garmin
So, I go to CMD, the little black box opens and shows:
I\Documents and Setting\Administrator
So I tried this:
I\Documents and Settings \ Administrator \ C:\\My Computers name\ OCC20148\C$\Garmin
Then I hit the 'enter' key
Then I put in the Garmin CD and when I run it, I get the same problem.
SO, what step did I miss in this process.
If you can I need really K.S.S.S.++ instructions! Thanks!!!
If there is anyway to show screen shots I can follow that would help too.
Thanks a lot!
