I get a message on the device that connection is being made. I also get a message on my desktop that the USB device is not recognized. The last USB device which connected to the desktop created a malfunction. Windows does no recognize the device (I presume the last one was also the Tom Tom but i'm not sure)

    Welcome to the site....
    Firstly try....
    With MyDrive Connect running... Your device plugged in and turned on
    On the keyboard... Press the Windows Button + R
    In the Run box type... Control printers
    Click OK
    The Devices and Printers window opens
    Right Click on the Tomtom Icon and select 'Troubleshoot'
    Note... Maybe listed as a Remote NDIS Compatible Device... My GO Premium displays as 'NDIS Compatible Device #8'

    Then follow on-screen instructions....


    On the rare occasions I have a problem with myDrive Connect
    I Delete MyDrive Connect using the free version of Revo Uninstaller then Reinstall MyDrive Connect....
    Using the Method Here...

    Or... Instead of UN-installing & RE-installing MyDrive Connect
    I find deleting the "HOME3" and the "MyDrive Connect" folders in the MyDrive Connect Program just as effective for giving MyDrive Connect a CPR...

    Thanks @YamFazMan
    I'm on a Mac but have found the two folders you mentioned (Home3 and MyDriveConnect) and deleted them. Hurrah.. that's done the trick after a couple of frustrating weeks I've updated it successfully.
    Many thanks for the advice.
    On a Mac....
    The "HOME3" and the "MyDrive Connect" folders are located here...
    MacOS: Users\Username\Library\Application Support\TomTom\

    "Download/installation interrupted".....
    Are your USB ports set for power saving "USB Selective Suspend"
