Question about Electronics - Others
My Phillips digital frame (model 7FFI) won't read either of my new 4 gig SanDisk SD cards. It has no problem with my old SimpleTech 512M card. Any ideas?
SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 200W SD card Problem
The problem is that the US 2008NT map takes up about 900MB, the update itself will push that up to 947MB. The Nuvi 200w has an internal memory of 1GB, the Help folder takes about 35MB and the text and speech files for all those other languages that you don't use or understand takes up about 30MB. So if you add all those up you come up with more than 1GB, and the SD card cannot be used for the US mapset (preloaded). It can only be used for additional map sets that you want to add like Europe, Mexico, Australia etc etc. So how do you update? Well you are going to have to decide if you really need all those extra voice and text languages such as Aafrikans, German, Spanish etc etc. If not, get rid of them. Also consider getting rid of the Help Folder since it's actually pretty useless, but I leave that up to you to decide.
Now for 3-belmont-E, your friends and yourself should have realized that the Garmin units read SD, not SD-HC which are different. When you got the 1GB SD card, it should come up as another drive. It will not show up as a folder on the Garmin unit itself, for example....
Your main drive is C: and your CD/DVD is D:, when you plug in the Garmin it becomes E: but if you have an SD card that will become F: so in reality your Garmin device will now be E and F, with F being the SD card. This is of course if the SD reader in the unit did not get damaged by you guys putting in the SD-HC card into it.

Here`s a tip i found for you...
1. Connect the frame to your PC using the supplied USB connector. Navigate to the \DCIM\100Frame directory and delete all the Phillips advertising pictures there.
2. Create a directory on your PC and put copies of all the pictures you want to display there.
3. Download the free picture resizer utility from Microsoft at:
(Look for Image Resizer in the right column). After installing it, "Select All" pictures in the directory you created, then right click and select "Resize Pictures" from the context menu. Choose the 640x400 radio button. Sort by size and copy all the small ones into the "\DCIM\100Frame" directory on the frame drive (Called Removable Disk on my PC).

The PIC or EEPROM inside these cards may not be working. I guess you best bet is to buy a new one try Kingston brand or go with another Sandisk.

Put the card back into the camera and off load/take off your pictures (Put them on the computer). Then, put the card back into the camera and go to your options menu. Find the format feature, and format the card. Take some new pictures and then try putting the card back into the picture frame. Does it work? If so, transfer the images from your computer back to the card. If it continues to work, then Great! If not, more than likely there is an improper or corrupt file among your photos.

The problem is that a 4 GB micro sd card is HC (High Capacity). You will need to buy a card reader that can read HC micro sd cards (cost +/- € 8).
Very important: check if your mobile phone works with high capacity micro sd cards because a lot of phones don't work with HC micro SD cards.
Don't forget to rate, thks
