Re: No MP3 icon in C550

If you loaded new files, they are probably not in MP3 format. Right click and check. I had the same issue and when I saved .mp3 files the icon appeared again.

How can i remove tunes from a garmin 765t mp3

Connect the GPS to a computer via supplied USB cable and:
  1. The GPS will be recognized as a new drive. If a pop-up appears choose "Open Folder To View Files." If not, click the "Start" button, then go to "My Computer." The double click on the new drive.
  2. When the hard drive opens, locate and open the MP3. There will probably be a couple of sample songs, you can delete them to free up additional space if desired
  3. Simply select and delete existing MP3s in the directory. Alternately, you can drag and drop MP3s into the directory to add them.

File deletion problem from Garmin c550

If your undelete program lets you undelete the _P3 folder, do it. Then try renaming it to MP3. See if this helps. This is the folder in which all of your music is stored. If it allows you to change the folder name, you should now see (and be able to delete) all of your music files stored on the GPS.

Loading mp3 files to garmin nuvi 350

The device is not recognizing the file name. The Garmin GPS will only recognize MP3 files. Ipod (MP4) and other media files will not play. Converting the files to the MP3 format will correct the problem.

You can drag and drop the music from the computer in folder view to the unit's MP3 folder while it is connected to your computer.

Medion md 96820 mobile gps navigation system

I got mine last night and all works fine - even though I had to disconnect it and reconnect it to see the internal memory content (preloaded) on the flash drive of the GPS. Once I saw the maps and other data, the Drag & Drop of MP3's worked as expected (using XP). I set up Active Sync as a guest account. Love the unit so far. Easy to use and fast response.

SD Card not showing in my Tomtom go 720 to play MP3

If you want to play mp3 songs from sd card then create mp3 folder and place all the songs in side that folder. Now when you go to Juke box menu it will scan all the songs and you will be able to play them the way you want..

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...

MP3 Player icon not even coming on screen

Hold a finger on the upper right corner of the screen while powering up the unit. This should do a master reset.

If that doesn't work, go here to download an update.
