BaseCamp doesn't recognize Roads and Recreation

I have the current version of Basecamp and Mapsource on my Win7 PC. I have loaded my old copy of Garmin Roads and Recreation maps (on disc) but Basecamp does not recognize or can't find R&R so it is not shown under Maps or Manage Map Products (it does recognize CNNT and SW 24K topo just fine). Mapsource does find R&R and it displays properly. Does Basecamp not work with R&R? Why might it not be able to find and display the R&R mapset? The map images are in the e:/garmin/garmin R&R/RR_US folder on my PC.

It is a little extreme, but I used to have luck getting Basecamp and Mapsource to recognize maps by editing the Registry in Windows 7.

Doesn't seem to work in Windows 8 though. The Registry entries are totally different.

Anyway I would go in an look at the Registry entries for mapsets that Basecamp would recognize. These were usually the pathname to where the map was stored. I would then either make sure the unrecognized map was where the Registry entry pointed or change the Registry entry to point to where the maps were.

I used Regedit to do this. And I backed up the Registry before I started hacking it up.

Disclaimer. This is all based on my memory from about 3 years ago.

BaseCamp sees RnR on both my Win 7 and Win 8 tablet, no playing in Registry.
Loaded the cd of RnR on to Drive C, installed from there. Updated Mapsource to the version I prefer 6.13, THEN installed BaseCamp.
You could try uninstalling BaseCamp and Mapsource, then re-install starting with the oldest, RnR.
Not all who wonder are confused
