    Windows 7 Ultimate

    Garmin devices in device manager but not showing in explorer.

    I upgraded to Windows 10 yesterday and everything works fine apart from this.
    I have Garmin edge 510 and 200 cycle computers, when plugged into the computer they are seen by windows and show up in device manager under disk drives. (as they should) However they do not show up in explorer and do not launch the options dialogue (play video, open in explorer, view photos etc.) Garmin express doesn't see either device either so I am unable to upload to Garmin's website. I thought it might have been an issue with the USB ports but I have tried four other devices and they all behave as they should and are fully seen/accessible via explorer.
    I have scoured the Garmin forums and no-one else seems to have this issue. I also had exactly the same issue when running the insider preview of Windows 10 so went back to Windows 7 thinking it was just a compatibility issue. I have the latest version of the express software and the same with the USB drivers so am at a loss as to what else to try!!!

    Windows 10 Pro

    Hi, I'm having exactly the same problem after upgrading to Windows 10 Pro. I'm trying to connect to my Garmin Edge 810. I have the latest Garmin USB drivers. The Garmin connects to the PC, I can see both the device and the micro-SD card in windows explorer, however Mapsource and Basecamp don't seem to find the device.

    Also the garmin communicator plugin in firefox doesn't find the device. (I have installed the plugin for internet explorer, but since then internet explorer crashes every time when opening).

    I also don't have any clue at what to do next...

    I fixed it myself.

    I ended up manually assigning a drive letter to my 510 and everything now works as it should!!
