My PC does not detect the connected Garmin GPS

Hi,
My PC does not detect the connected Garmin GPS.- I use MapSource 6.16.3. GPS is turned on and connected via usb cable to the PC.
When I connect my Garmin GPSmap 60csx to my laptop using Windows 7/64. I getting an error message 'device not found' I. I installed new USB driver - page for the driver update:
http://www8.garmin.com/support/downl...ils.jsp?id=591.
I have uninstalled the software and drivers on many occasions and reinstalled. I always get the same message 'device not found'.
USB cable is OK.
The Garmin device worked OK on my old laptop which uses Windows XP sp3.

Can anybody help!

Robert
