You will need a 1gb sd card, for the data one solution is to visit C&C wireless and pay over $100 for a map update or even send them your unit for even more $. see http://www.finedrive-acc.com/shop.cart?action=ITEM&prod_id=F400-08CP

The other solution was to send it to Fine Digital but they closed their doors in the US so they no longer support us customers. Because of this I made a DVD with map data I purchased from them before they closed and I added much better instructions; this DVD updates the firmware in the unit and loads the last map data issued to the SD card. you would need a PC with a DVD drive and SD card reader to use it. you can find these DVDs on ebay for $18 which basically covers my costs only.

This is a common issue, probably corrupt firmware in your unit and/or the sd card.

Fine drive 400 map data files


you can buy a 1gb sd card but then you have to get matching map data files, if you know someone with the same unit you could try copiying their data but it has to be the same date or you will get an error. the files themselves are too big to email or post online in most sites.

I created a repair DVD with both the firmware update and last map update issued by fine digital before closing in the US and leaving us all high and dry. there is a company called C&C wireless that sells a similar dvd for $109. I sell mine on ebay for $18 plus shipping. will be posting one there this week.

This is a common problem with these units, it happens if the unit is shut off while its writing data to the SD card.

Cant copy DVD software to SD


write me at vince954@yahoo.com if this does not work. On the dvd there is also a zipped version of the map_sd directory, copy it to your pc and unzip it and then copy the contents to your sd card. as the file is so large, some dvd drives have issues reading it.

Loading music to finedrive 400


you have to use an SD card with your MP3s in it, I dont think there is much room left in the factory SD card with maps and you probably dont want to risk erasing it anyway. just remember to put the map card back in before navigating.
