Had the same problem after using latest Home download and then next PC boot could not recognise tomtom. Fixed by pushing the reset on the bottom of the TomTom. Then connected to the PC again and all works

Wehave a tom tom go 530 (refurbished). Its


Let's hope there's nothing wrong with your TomTom. Here's some information that may assist you with your Go 530.

Your TomTom GO must be outside to locate your current position. The first time you start your GO, it can take up to 5 minutes to find your current position.

If it takes longer than 5 minutes, make sure that you are in an open place without tall buildings or trees around you.

In the future, your position will be found much faster, normally within a few seconds.

Once your GO has located your current position, the Driving View is shown in full color and shows your position on the map.

Finding your position faster:

To find your position faster, use the home dock in combination with TomTom HOME on your computer. When connected to the Internet, TomTom HOME
automatically downloads information which helps your GO locate your position faster.

click here to download TomTom Home.

Note: Some vehicles have a heat reflective shield embedded in the windshield that may prevent TomTom GO from locating your current position. If this is a problem in your vehicle, use the TomTom External
Antenna Kit (available as an accessory).

If you found this information helpful, please give me a big thumbs up when you rate my answer. Thanks.

Unit GO 530 doesn't work after updating it.


Same thing happened to me. Connect it back to your computer again and download the upgrades again. That should square it away

No longer able to download media onto player


Get the firmware upgrade by downloading the clean version of the Device Manager from www.usasupport.philips.com - open Device Manager and go to Update

If it won't recognze, then force recognition:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Get software from Sandisk's website

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa 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 "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.
