Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver
It's about 16 - 18 months old. worked great until a few days ago I tryed to learn more about it. Put the CD in the computer and it said plug the TomTom in also. Well winthin a few seconds the tomtom went to a screen flashing the dreaded red X. --- computer says "NOT FORMATED"
I tried many things - finaly tried to reformat - Windows says it can't format.
Propertys shows the chip full. - No free space.
How can I format the internal chip? - Can I use a plugin chip and restore it? I am prepaired to get (buy) a 1GB SD chip if you think that will work.
I've done it!
I had exactly the same problem, device appeared full although nothing was inside, I tried to format it using the properties tab in windows -no good-, then using the dos prompt -no good again-.
How I fixed it? I formatted it with the properties function in windows, the only thing that changed from the previous attempt was only plugging the device in a different usb port, and without using any extension lead. I can't explain why it worked, but it did the trick for me, so good luck if you want to try.
PS: afterthat I re-installed the operating system as per tomtom online support. Unfortunately I lost my map (that's what I'm trying to sort out next) but at least I got rid of that hideous white cross on red circle
