Com 4 closed

I use com 4 to program my GPS via Memory Map; but XP now says (was ok yesterday) that com 4 now can't be opened. Does some kind soul know how I can I access the port details i.e baud rate, etc, in XP ?

What GPS are you using? Although i am using Anquet mapping to transfer data to and from my Garmin etrex summit i had a similar problem. I solved it by selecting an unkown device and the resulting dialogue enabled me to alter the settings manually. Perhaps this may be the procedure to follow using Memory Map

Control panel- System- Device manager- then look down the list for Ports (Com & LPT). Right click Com4, -properties- port settings.

Hope this helps.
