As a last effort to get it to work I went to the Garmin web page and did an 
up-date on my GPS then tried again to load from GSAK and it took all of them 
and I could then also enter by hand.  Don't know what happened but the GPS is 
back on line for me, the PDA is still not working, maybe I have to update that 
also but it will have to wait until I come home.
 
Thanks to everyone for your help.

I had the same problem with my legend. This is where I went to download usb 
drivers and it works again.
 http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=010-00629-00 
the only thing I did notice after I got it working again is when I sent the 
waypoints to my gps ( I was putting in for Montauk area) they were not showing 
up in my geocache or waypoints until I deleted all of my local caches. Then 
they showed up in my geocache file.

Due to recent budget cuts and the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil. 
The Light at the End of the Tunnel has been turned off. 
We apologize for the inconvenience.

Life is way to short to take serious.

Now my GPS60CXs will not even let me load waypoints by hand, I enter them and 
hit OK and it still says None Found.
I give up.  I am back on my old Vista and paper.
