I found the solution on my own. My PC is a Win 7 64bit machine and I was using Google Chrome Version 18. When I tried the download again using IE, it worked fine. I now have 3 full maps on my Nuvi 1390 (i in the internal memory and 2 in the SD card) and can access each one without a problem.
What you have to do when your gps device comes up with such a message is for you to reset your device. First check that the battery is properly charged, then you reset it by pressing the reset button that is on it. If that does not do the job. then you have to do the back up restore solution.
To do that, you have to connect your device to the computer that has its software, then you browse out the device using the computer page, then you format your device by right clicking on the device from the computer page, then you select format, do not use the quick start, format it normally, that way the whole software and applications on the device will be wiped out, then you reinstall your software back on it and try to load maps on it. After doing that, your device will work perfectly fine once again.
That should do the job.

You also may want to ensure the format on the card was compatible with the new software. chances are you need to update both with it wanting to reformat the card it will wipe all information clean. Try saving the information to your computer before formatting the card to save the maps. It may work if not you may need to update the card with newer software compatible wiht the new download
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.
FIRST THING , Backup the SD card. To format an SD card you insert SD card into card reader slot on a PC or a SD card reader. Then find the SD card Icon in 'my computer'. Then hover over it with the mouse and right click , choose 'format' from that drop-down menue. REMEMBER .... EVERYTHING ON THE CARD WILL BE DELETED ! *** WARNING *** The card will not work in the tomtom once it has been formatted.
There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.
WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.
Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers. You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself: Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything. -Tha Mp3 Doctor
