"device not found"

I'm still plugging along trying to figure out the Garmin 478 that came with a bike I just bought.

I want to figure this out as I realize that it is a nice unit, but at the moment, it's winning!

So, I have successfully gotten base camp on my laptop, I have loaded Garmin's drivers and the Garmin Communicator.....I have gotten it registered now in my name, and purchased the lifetime map upgrades via download for it. I am unable to get the computer to find the GPS and load the update!

The cable is fine, if I unplug it from either end, the GPS recognizes that it's connected, but the computer just won't find the device.

Any help appreciated.
