Transfer of tracks from memory-map to Etrex Summit

Since updating memory-map software I can't download routes to my ETrex summit from PC via serial connection. Problem seems to be MM recognising garmin but not which model. Tech support from MM indicates no communication from Garmin(software version 3.30) to MM and identifies problem as either unit itself (rarely used) and/or problem with serial cable, again no previous problems. Am tempted to unistall current MM and reinstall original version which worked. Any other suggestions?

At last, after several hours of uninstalling/installing, checking on communication via hyperterminal etc via different serial port plug on computer , connection has been re-established and routes and tracks can be up and downloaded as before.

Hence, as I suspected, neither connecting cable nor GPS unit is at fault.

Thanks to those who viewed my problem, hope my resolution may help in the future.
