    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.

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)

Tom tom one Xl wont load


Hi,maybe that the memory card is knackered! (tomtom ones are poor quality and slow) Have you got a spare card that you use in a camera maybe, if so format it using fat 32 on your computer and then copy and paste all your files one by one onto it. I this works I would recommend a sandisk ultra 2 as a replacement card, worked for me!

Tom tom go 300 ''unable to store settings'' ''file access error'


Hi,
You might have the switch on SD card set to "read only" , This would stop your tomtom being able to write to the SD card ... hence , " unable to store settings " message . .... OR ... the folder where your tomtom wants to store the settings is corrupted ( on your SD card ) so it can't store them.... or similarly , the file is corrupted on the SD card ( maybe the card is damaged ) so the existing file cannot be overwritten . Check out all these possibilities before suspecting any hardware fault on your tomtom ..... GOOD LUCK

Tom Tom 720 won't back up and falters during operations


You have to make a manual back up of the device. Make a new folder on your desk top. Connect your device to your PC and turn it on. Go to my computer and look for tom tom storage device and open it. You will see all the folders that is in your tom tom. Copy and paste just the yellow ones into the new folder. When you have done this you can know reformat your device. Do this by right clicking on the tom tom logo (in my computer). Click fat 32 (full format). This will wipe everything off. Disconnect your device, you will see a red cross on the screen. reset the device with a paper clip (hold in for 30 sec) You will still see the red cross. connect back up to PC and install the latest application of to tom home on to the device. From here you can go to add maps ect, and put your maps back on the device. Tom tom home will give you all the updates your device will be missing. You will only need the maps so don't worry if you can not copy all folders (for whatever reason) you can get everything you need as well as free updates for free via tom tom home. Its only the maps you have to pay for.

Tom Tom 910


Either faulty / corrupted files on the hard drive or a faulty hard drive ( not uncommon ) is causing this problem. Effectivley causing the TomTom to lock up as it cannot procede . In order for a tomtom to turn off normally , it needs to have fully loaded up normally. Your tomtom isn't loading up properly , hence the problem. If you have a backup of the tomtom hard drive ? ( I hope you backed up the files to your PC ) then you can try formatting the tomtom hard drive and copying the files back to it from your PC .
Good Luck.

TOM TOM Fix


yea you are right about the format fixing the issue....the problem with what you said,......is that once you format the unit ALL info is erased...So publically informing people to format their device is not fully correct.....If you are going to attempt to format....MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE MADE A BACK UP YOUR UNIT FIRST......this way you have info to put on it....
