TomTom Nav5 problem: Arm Read memory allocation error

TomTom 5.12 is driving me crazy!! I initially installed it to the LD partition but kept getting 'Armcode error' unless I did a soft reset before starting Nav. TomTom tech support said the problem was due to the fact that non-SD card installation wasn't supported & that I needed 5-9 MB of free internal memory. I subsequently reinstalled Nav to teh SD card & opened up 12MB of internal memory but now I am getting "Arm Read: could not allocate memory" error messages when I try to run Nav. I am assuming that the LD's internal memory isn't the same as the "program memory" (dynamic heap??)--is there a way to free up more of the latter?

Actually, if you are using Navigator 5, and you install it on a SD card on the LifeDrive it works fine. I have been using mine since Navigator 5 has been released.

I don't know what it is with those brits but I think they hate us here in the America's. I have TomTom Nav 4 on my wife's T3 and had problems with instillation but could not get support (real person) from tomtom. Did you buy the Nav 5 from Palm's website? I called them and they said that they were making one "JUST" for the LD but didn't know how long that was going to take. If anything if you did buy it from Palm you should try calling them and see if they can help you with it.

Reformatting HCS725032VLA380


Is it your primary hard drive ?
Reformat hard drive to NTFS Windows XP allows you to easily format the hard drives with its inbuilt utility. Formatting the hard drive would forever delete all the files stored on it. There are two ways in which you can format the hard disk partition - from My Computer and from DOS. You cannot have a NTFS partition with allocation unit s above 4096.

Click on "Start," and then click on "My Computer." Right-click on the disk partition to format and then click on "Format." Click on the "File System" drop down box and select "NTFS." Click on the "Allocation unit " drop down box and select an allocation . It is recommended that you select the "Default allocation " option. Click on the "Start" button. b> Format the Partition from DOS b> Click on "Start," and then click on "Run." Type "cmd" in the 'Run' dialog box and then press "Enter." Type "format drive_letter: /FS:NTFS" at the command prompt and then press "Enter." Replace the 'drive_letter' here with the letter of the drive that you want to format (for example, format e: /FS:NTFS). For help on advanced formatting options, type "format/?'more" at the command prompt and then press "Enter." Keep pressing "Enter" as you read on. Hope it helps

Installed appears in device manager but not in my computer


If you have not partitioned the drive you need to do so.
(Vista) XP and Win 7 similar

Go to Control panel / Admin tools / Computer management / storage/ Disc management. You will then see the drives connected to your system. The offending drive will appear as "not initialized" Right click on the drive there and create a new simple volume. It will then format the drive and you should then see it (after closing down computer management etc windows) in my computer.

If the drive contains files, this will show as allocated space, you should not need to initialize the dirive, but you may need to format it fully.

Hard disk drive not opening


Best is not to partition your Hard Drive to more then 4 partitions. If you are going to install more than 2 Operating Systems(OS) on your hard drive,be sure to set your partition to "active" for the intended OS before formating. If you set to more to 4 partition, most probably your OS will not be able to read the partitions and that are the reasons you are getting the errors.

I was given a MAXTOR 500 GB SATA HDD which I installed into my desktop. Once powered up, the HDD had an audio (almost chime)tone. The desktop installed the drivers but would not display the HDD in MY...


Hard drives do not generate audio tones for error messages or POST codes. Any problems should be reported by the BIOS on boot. The disk may not be showing up under Windows Explorer for other reasons, so...

Open up Disk Management (right-click on My Computer for XP, Computer for Vista) and select Manage from the context menu then select Disk Management from the left-hand pane. In the middle pane, scroll down until you find a disk that is Not Initialized or Offline.

If it is marked as Not Initalized, right-click on it and select Initialize Disk. After the disk has been initialized, you need to create a parition by right-clicking on unallocated space of the disk and selecting New Partition from the context menu. Follow the wizard to create the partition. Once the partition is created, right-click on your new partition and select Format from the context menu and follow the wizard to format the newly allocated space. Once this is done, you will be able to utilize the disk.

If it is marked as Offline, right-click on the disk and select Reactivate Disk from the context menu. If the disk is partitioned and formatted already, you should be able to use the disk immediately, otherwise follow the instructions above for partitioning and formatting the drive.

Maxtor hard drive installation


Its a long process! First you have to transfer your saved files to disk. CD,DVD, or Floppy. Insert your copy of windows Install disk and turn your computer off and then back on. When Windows asks you if you want to repair or install a fresh version of windows, click fresh version. Have your copy of Serial Numbers ready for your Windows disk. Somewhere in the installation Windows will ask you if you want to install windows to the same drive? Delete this Partition? or Create a Partition?, Know how many Gigabyte or Megabyte your Hard drive is. Click on Delete Partition, Your Hard Drive is now Un-allocated. Now Click Create Partition and enter the amount of Bytes you want to allocate to C: drive, Usually half of what the computer is showing you what you have. Now you have a primary drive of C: and Un-Allocated space, Scroll down with your arrow key and select the unallocated drive and click create drive, the remainder of bytes on your drive will be allocated to that drive and assigned a different drive letter. (D) or what ever. Go back up to C: drive and say install windows to that drive, and from there just follow the windows installation. Good Luck.

XP install


Your motherboard could be the problem! But it could also be your memory, hard drive or the file system that resides on the hard drive! I don't think you would've gotten that far if you were having memory problems, but its still possible, however, we'll focus on it being the hard drive/filesystem! Boot to the XP CD, When your given the option to assign hard drive, select the hard drive you want to install to, and delete all the partitions! Then recreate partition(s)! (When you recreate partitions through XP install the first created is always a primary partition, subsequent partitions will be extended!! That means if a partition is already there a newly created partition will be in an extended partition) Now that the partition is created format it(don't quick format do a full format)! then install! If that ends up with an error or the same problem its probably your hard drive or motherboard!(If you go a spare hard drive you can try that to see if it goes beyond the reboot!!) try this first and see how it works out, get back to me if any questions. regards, babb
