    BU-353 problem

    I brought this GPS receiver couple week ago for my carpc. right when i received it, i test it and everything works fine. however now it isn't. After i installed the logictech use mouse (G5), the receiver never worked since than. i tried to uninstall all logitech programs, and reinstall bu-353 driver, so far nothing works. everytime in plug the receiver into the usb port, "it'll sad one of the usb devices attached tothis computer has malfunctioned, and windows doesnot recognize it"

    doesn't know know how to fix this problem?

    I'd try downloading the latest drivers from prolific's website.

    A USB hub can cause intermittent signals. It's very common for the GPS to not be recognized when going through a USB hub, particularly an unpowered one.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Do you guys think the GPS receiver is dead? It worked just fine when i first brought it couple weeks back, now that i needed it, its not working. The light on the receiver still blinks.

    I think it's dead. It's a pretty reliable unit, I have the same one and it's worked flawlessly out of the box.

    I'd say send it back man. That sucks.

    I'd try it on a different computer first. Have you tried uninstalling and re-installing your usb root hubs in the device manager? If it does the exact same thing on another pc I'd definitely say send it back but I wouldn't call it defective quite yet.
