Question about Magellan eXplorist 500 GPS Receiver

Downloads title only

Wen I upload goecaches to my reciever I can only bring up the directory (file name) which reads empty file. I tried first on SD card which worked initially then lost the information. Thinking I had a SD card problem, I removed the card and tried to upload to internal memory I got the same results, only this time it didn't work at all. I am using Magellon Geocache manager software

I had this problem also with my 500. I worked around it by putting numbers only in the first column and naming in the next column I think. I do not have the program in front of me but work with that. I will double check later if you still have prob.

Whenever i try to import pictures from my kodak 4g sdhc card i get a prompt saying that the directory name is invalid i have over 800 pictures ad really dont want to lose them all anything i can do?


Try inserting the SD memory card into an USB memory card reader and plug it into the USB port of a working computer. This computer will see the SD memory card as an external storage device then you can open the image folder to copy the photos to your computer.
If this does not work the try the Recuva program.
Recuva (pronounced"recover") is a freeware Windows utility to restore files that havebeen accidentally deleted from your computer. This includes files emptied fromthe Recycle bin as well as images and other files that have been deleted byuser error from digital camera memory cards or MP3 players. It will even bringback files that have been deleted from your iPod, or by bugs, crashes andviruses!
  • Simple to use interface - just click 'Scan' and choose the files you want to recover
  • Easy to use filter for results based on file name/type
  • Simple Windows like interface with List and Tree view
  • Can be run from a USB thumb drive
  • Restores all types of files, office documents, images, video, music, email, anything.
  • Supports FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, exFAT, NTFS, NTFS5 , NTFS + EFS file systems
  • Restores files from removable media (SmartMedia, Secure Digital, MemoryStick, Digital cameras, Floppy disks, Jazz Disks, Sony Memory Sticks, Compact Flash cards, Smart Media Cards, Secure Digital Cards, etc.)
  • Restores files from external ZIP drives, Firewire and USB Hard drives
  • It's fast, tiny and takes seconds to run!

How to save ringtone download to the phone


Create a folder named 'ringtones' (without the quotes) in the root of your SD card, and copy the files (mp3, wma, ogg) you want to use as ringtones to that folder. Then, as usual, if you either edit the contact entry you want to set one of the newly copied ringtones to, or open the dialer's default ringtone settings, the files you copied should appear in the selection list.
Hope it works for you.
Anyway, please, let me know if I can help you any further, since it would also work if you copied those files directly to the internal '/system/media/audio/ringtones' directory, but it would mean you would have to mount the '/system' directory as a read-write drive, and set write permissions to those directories beforehand. Such operations are far more complicated than the SD card solution, but I could explain them to you, if you really want.
Best regards, Carlos

Well i have a jvc everio and i know how to put videos on youtube but is there a way to title them myself because when i put it on youtube it just says a bunch of letters and numbers. so how do i put my own...


Title them before you upload them to Youtube. The file name is the title of the media files. Unless they have an option to ad a title then just do it when you right click on the file, see if you can rename the file you are uploading by right clicking on the file itself before you upload it in the file manager and change its name unless it is your personal file name them before actually making it or posting it. Thanks for using FixYa! John

How do i change my htc text tones (alert) to mp3


To add other sounds to your notifications list, you will need to get to your SD card.

On your SD card, you will need to create a directory titled media. Within the media directory, create a folder titled audio. Within the audio directory, create a folder titled notifications.

Place any .mp3s or other sounds into this notifications folder. Unmount the SD card. Reboot your phone. When you go to Settings > Sound & display > Notification sound, you should see all the newly copied files on your notification list.

Good luck.

How do i add downloaded ringtones to the menu so that i can select them when setting the ring tone for an individual. right now the menu only gives me the canned ringt ones


You will need to access your phone as an external storage device and save your ringtones onto the SD card.

Plug your phone into your computer with the USB cable. On your phone, pull the notification screen down and select USB connected. Select "Mount". Your computer will now recognize your phone.

Go to your SD card and you will need to create a directory titled Media. Inside this directory, create another directory title Audio. Within this directory, create one final directory titled Ringtones.

Place any supported sound files in that final directory and they will appear in your ringtones list.

You can also create an Alarms directory, and use any supported sound files as alarms for your phone.

Remember to pull the notification screen to turn off the usb storage.

Hope this helps, and good luck.

Garmin Nuvi 200 Maps Disappeared


Hi,
Hope this helps!

I wanted to add maps to my 250W. I found the maps I wanted on a Torrent. However, many searches around various forums never revealed how to install these. Found the following through reading and experimentation.

1. Downoaded map image file GMAPSUPP.IMG. Download also gave me "Use code XXX when generating unlock code for maps"
2. Downloaded Garmin Unlock Generator 1.3 by JetMouse
3. Looked on my GPS to find the UnitID
4. Entered the UnitID into Garmin Unlock Generator. Ignore the GM XT device unlock code and the top Generate button.
5. Selected Map Product as Custom and entered the code given for the downloaded image file.
6. Hit the bottom create button to generate a 25 digit code.
7. Download Img2Gps and run
8. Click Load Folder to load the image file. Select the tick next to it.
9. Check the Use Unlock Key option and paste the 25 digit code in.
10. Load a blank SD card into your Garmin
11. Connect the Garmin to your PC using a USB cable. You should see two dirves in windows: one is the Garmin and the other is the "Removable Disk" SD card.
12. Create a folder called "Garmin" on the SD card
13. Select Folder/Card in Img2GPS
14. Click "Copy Maps". Select the folder /Garmin on the SD card. You may need to click copy again.
15. Upload will take a while.
16. You should now see a file GMAPSUPP.IMG on the SD card in the /Garmin directory.
17. Create a new text file called GMAPSUPP.UNL in the same directory (make sure it does not have a hidden .txt extension).
18 copy the 25 digit unlock key into this file.
19. Close the file.
20. Disconnect the Garmin.
21. On Startup it should load your original maps and the new ones.

Why won't WMPlayer recognize my Ipod?


I heard that the IPod was made to run just with I Tunes from Apple. Wen you upload a file from your computer to the IPod, it changes the name of file, and other things too, so the IPod just read these names. Thats why some people don´t like Ipod, i´m one of them.
