    AFAIK GVN 52/53 don't have a proper preboot mode. What are you trying to flash to it?

    Well, i don't think it's bricked anyway. You have the reverse of the obvious symptom for a 'bricked' unit. A bricked unit cannot be seen in Mass Storage Mode. If i'm right about GVN5x not having a preboot mode then it cannot be flashed by an RGN file using Updater.exe because Updater.exe only works in preboot.

    If its file system is empty that's probably the reason why it won't boot, many Garmin devices cannot boot empty they require at least some files in them.

    Connect it in MSM then create a folder named Garmin in the root and it might boot up.

    MSM = Mass Storage Mode.

    If it was "bricked" it could not access Mass Storage Mode. Connect it to PC, create a folder named Garmin, then safely disconnect from PC, then power it up.

    Connect it to PC again and open [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to see if it's recognised by it. If it is seen, let WU load any update files it offers.

    You need to be clearer. Already done what? Connected the GVN53 to PC but it's not seen by WebUpdater? What do you mean by 'still cannot detect usb'? I know it's not detected in preboot, but you said previously that you have 'mass storage'. So do you have Mass Storage Mode via USB? If you created a Garmin folder on the unit you must have MSM. Put an empty GarminDevice.xml file inside the Garmin folder and try again with WebUpdater. Extract this file directly into the Garmin folder: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Don't put the RAR file in the folder. Extract it to there with WinRAR, WinZip, 7-zip, Universal Extractor or similar program.
