    What model is it? Some of the newer Tom Toms aren't recognized by Windows and only work with the My Tomtom program - has your computer ever recognised it?

    Is Windows doing nothing when you plug it in? Is it listed in Device Manager?
    I think they usually get added as Removable Drives.

    If it isn't recognised in device manager try a different cable, USB port and if poss a mates computer. As northern bloke mentioned, install the tomtom software first.

    Ooops I forgot the My Tomtom program was renamed to MyDrive - basically there's nothing you can do with it apart from pay for almost everything from Tomtom - AFAIK there are no hacks for any of the newer Tomtoms
