The postcode information has to be in a folder named ZIP. This can be either on the SD card or as a subfolder of the NAvigator folder in Program Files on your device

SD card no loger recognised...
It is a common problem after an update.
I personally had to contact tomtom & they talked me through formating the SD card & starting again.
Reset the unit by pushing a bent paperclip or pin into the hole on the bottom marked 'reset' turn it back on, plug it in & charge it via USB overnight or as long as you can in the car, make sure the led on the top is green, tap the bottom right of the screen & check the battery symbol on the unit says charging underneath.
If this doesn't help.
contact them about the problem...

I just had this same problem. Quite strange. I have a Tomtom One New Edition and connected to a Vista Ultimate computer. Here is what I did to fix the problem I was having.
Exited out of the Tomtom HOME application. Went to "Computer" and right clicked the Tomtom drive (was M: for me, could be different for you) with the Red Icon. Selected properties and click on tools. From there I selected "Error-Checking" and only checked "Automatically scan and fix errors for me". It said it found a couple errors and corrected it. I then doubled clicked the icon in the bottom right portion of my screen which looks like a USB plug with a green check mark on it. I selected the drive and clicked stop. I disconnected the usb plug and then used a small tack on the bottom of the Tomtom unit to reset the device. After that, I turned the unit on and all was fine and I could clearly see that an update was applied.
Good luck! They really should have a support bulletin for this as this is clearly a common issue.

The unit was fully charged from the factory. Turned on thwe unit and followed simple directions to position my location. Rest followed.

SOURCE: SD card problem
The most likely cause for the RED CROSS is that some files are missing or corrupted on the SD card. This can also occur if someone has accidently dragged and dropped files on the SD card. ie. if a folder or file has been accidently dropped into a different folder. For instance you could drag and drop the maps folder into the voices folder. In this case the unit wouldn't load up if you had no maps although the maps would still be on the SD card but would be in the wrong place. We all know that files on media can be damaged or become corrupted so its always worth making a GOOD BACKUP of any sd card so that should this problem arise you can reinstall the backup.
If you have no luck with your SD card , you could try borrowing a card off someone you know and make a copy of it then activate that copy by using the original activation code together with the device code. .... good luck .
