Microsd card won't read


You need to use a microSD card, not a microSDHC card. microSD cards max out at 2GB, anything larger is a microSDHC.
The 1390t works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it will not work in older devices.

I recently bought a Scosche Digital FM Transmitter Model FMTD8/FMTD8R. I loaded my 8GB San-disk flash drive with music but the transmitter won't read it.. doesn't even detect the flash drive being...


wma files won't be read, only mp3 files, in my experience. My 512 mb SD card works, but it won't read my 8 gb SDHC card. I suspect it can't manage SDHC (high capacity) cards. I haven't tested yet, because as it turns out, neither can my computer... I think I'll fall back to a flash drive.

My garmin nuvi 350 gps will not recognize the sd card with music files


Please see this link for additional help.

Make sure you have a folder named "mp3" on the SD card and that the files are in that folder. Try pressing the "source" button in the mp3 player to grab thefiles from the SD card. Also, if there are a lot of files, it may take a while for the Nuvi to read them all before they are displayed.

How do you download music to your gps


You do not download music to the GPS, put music files onto a SD card and then put that card into the GPS. You have to remove the Map SD card to do this so you cannot play music and use the GPS at the same time.

Device not reading sd card loaded music


try putting sd card back into a pc and check that the write protection is turned off. also if it has a write protection switch on the side of it it will need to be off. failing this. you may need to check what format the sd card was formatted in . it will need to be ntfs formatt not fat32. if it is fat32 ,save whats on it re format to ntfs then reload your files. try again.. cheers Phixxer.

The manual is helpful isn't it?

Your music and pictures need to be installed onto a SD memory card. Take an empty card and copy the MP3 or pictures onto the card. Install the card into the GPS. Use the correct player (for pics or MP3) and see if it detects the music on the memory card.

It seems like it works the same way if you were to put music or photos onto a Palm. It may need a special folder on the card to read the photos or MP3s. I would put it into the GPS first, let the GPS format it, and see if it creates folders for them.

I'm about to purchase the same model. I'm reading the instructions I printed off Nextar's site and it does say the unit is designed with SD card slot and supports MP3 and WMA format files playback. You can insert ther SD card with MP3 or WMA files in the unit for music enjoyment.

Hope this helps
