i have had  an etrex for ages now and always just used it self contained but i would now like to download GPX files onto it and vice versa. To this end I bought a data cable from ebay and a serial adapter from another ebayer, when i tried to set it up it I cannot get my laptop to find the device, inital probelm seems to be not finding the serial device.
