I bought a new pc that has windows 8 installed on it. Now it will not find/recognize my Garmin etrex Legend.

When I connect the usb cord , nothing happens. nothing from the pc about finding the usb cord.

I have used this usb cor on windows xp with no problems.

Do I need a new usb cord? new drivers?

At a complete loss here.

Any help would be muchly appreciated.

Thanks

Did you try installing Garmin's communicator plugin?
Does it recognize any other USB devices?
Possibly try ensuring you have the latest USB drivers.
Maybe email Garmin to see if its compatible with Windows 8

Good Luck

Installed this and for some strange reason things started to work again! Thanks for the info.
