Garmin Connect - editing routes problems

On a few occasions, friends have sent me the GPX files for their rides which I have loaded into Garmin Connect and tried to edit so I can route them back to where I want to start/end from.

They upload fine, I save as course, edit course, check the changes make sense and save it down as the new course (I changed the name to make sure it wasn't rubbish)

When I then send that course to my Garmin (edge 500) it seems to just send the original route which I have taken from a friend, with none of my changes incorporated.

This also happens if I want to recreate a ride I have done as a course, but want to delete out the wrong turns. Seems to not work, and I end up following my wrong turns again!

Any ideas why/how to fix?

    How about manually putting the correct file on the Garmin instead of using Connect. Just copy the file into the \Garmin\New Files folder on the device.
