    I now have the drive working but I am unable to put the Western European map on my Tom Tom one 3rd editions internal memory.

    It has an internal memory of 1GB and no SD card slot.

    I formatted my Tom Tom cause it had corrupt files on there and i was unable to do any updates with tom tom home.

    I can now gain access to my tom tom drive but I need more space in order to copy and paste the western European map

    also after the format (in FAT 32) I found there was still invisible data using up space. This was because there was only 128 megabytes on internal memory and 849 megabytes of internal memory being used.

    I found this very stange as I thought the format would leave 100% free space.

Is the tomtom showing as an external drive if you access it via my computer on your pc.

If it is showing as a external drive you should be able to copy and past the files back to you tomtom

Just out of interest for what reason did you need to formatt your tomtom.

Unable to move files from my mac to a external mac formatted usb storage drive

I believe the Belkin N750 is not compatible with Mac-formatted drives. I run Macs and while my N750 will see the drive, it is treated as read-only. Try reformatting in FAT-16, FAT-32 or NTFS.

I have a maxtor one touch 4 1 TB and I used it for a PC w windows 7. Now I have an apple computer and want to format it so I can read both pc and mac

FAT 32 format can be accessed by both pc and mac. the drive should be already Fat 32 formatted, but still, the files stored from the mac will not be able to be read by windows and visa versa in most situations.

you will run into trouble if you have to fat 32 format it yourself, as windows will only format up to 32 gigs of it in fat 32- you will have to make multiple 32 gig partitions to use the entire drive, and would be unable to keep more than 32 gigs of info per backup or folder, bacause of all the seperate partitions.

I am trying to trasfer a large amount of files from my macbook to a dell laptop. The mac will recognize the drive and i am able to backup and save files onto it, however when i plug the drive into the...

The problem most likely is the Dell does not recognize the MAC file format (HPFS), but the MAC will recognize the PC's FAT 32 file system.
First format the USB mass storage device using the Dell, format this device in FAT 32 not in NTFS because the MAC can read and write/copy PC format files but the Dell/PC cannot read MAC format files.
Then Safely remove this device, connect it to the MAC and copy the files onto this drive. When you connect this device to the Dell, you will be able to see the files.
Have fun.

If you really must have fat 32 (maybe for MAC use ?) then windows itself does not support doing a fat format on large drives.

Does not recognise the sd card

This is a common error ans is usually caused by the card not being formatted correctly

A card reader/writer on you PC is the best option

If you can plug the card in somewhere other than into the Tom Tom.
Even a card reader attached to the PC vai a USB cable will work

The computer will see the tomtom as a USB drive that can be accessed like a flash drive.

You need to format it either as "FAT or "FAT16" using the reader
In either my computer or windows explorer right click on the card (propably listed as removable drive)

Select FORMAT and use one of the FAT options above.

Plug your tomtom into the pc but don't run the tomtom home software
If the tom tom asks if you want to connect to computer say yes
Now Simply copy all of the files on your tomtom to the new card.

Once you finish doing the copy, you should be able to insert the card
If you need to add any maps voices etc then disconnect the tomtom from the pc and start the tomtom home software, then connect the tom tom to the pc.

Many tom toms will accept up o a 4gb card (but not micro versions)

File System of USB Pen Drive

You will not be unable to access your files on other computers because of the file permissions that go along with NTFS. I would recommend Fat32 if you are thinking of using those files everywhere you go, but stick with NTFS if you want the security.

Im not sure why the volume label appears in blue but im pretty sure its not virus related.

Pioneer AVH-P5000DVD stereo USB Error 23

I had the same problem with my Pioneer AVH-P4000DVD. Just got my 16GB sandisk micro cuzer in the mail from Radio Shack. Here is what I did to solve it:
  1. Copied all the files that came with the Sandisk device to another location (in case I need them again)
  2. Copied all the music I had put on the Sandisk since I got it to another location
  3. Using a Windows PC, I right clicked on the drive in Windows Explorer and selected "format"
  4. I re-formatted the cruzer mini to FAT 32, default size (yes, I know it was FAT 32 already)
  5. Copied the music back to the cruzer mini
  6. Plugged it into my radio and it works GREAT! instant access to any track
Before you do this: Reformatting the drive also gets rid of the software that makes the cruzer mini copy files super fast. It will take a lot longer to copy music to the drive. For me this is no big deal as the only reason I bought the drive was to put a bunch of music on it and then leave it in my truck.
