Trying to put in a new update for my DNX7100 but when you put the SD card in nothing happens. Waited about 5 minutes and tried turning it off and reseting it with no such luck. Only trying to update it because the GPS keeps telling my it's locating satellites. Drove 2100 miles with out a GPS. Anyone know why it's not reading. I even tried 3 different SD cards. Thanks.
It sounds like either your GPS plug came out of the back of the unit, or your gps does not have a clear view of the sky, or if the gps is mounted on a trunk that opens and closes a lot the wire can break inside. I dont think the software is your issue, just to make sure if you update make sure the update file is the only file on the card, if there are other files (left over pictures, etc) they can cause the unit to disreguard the whole card.

My problem was cured by reformatting the Mini SD card that holds the map data. I had the same problem this week with my Garmin Nuvi 265. After doing an update I received the "No Data Available" message when trying to use my GPS. After trying three days of so-called fixes I remembered that, at least in my case, the map is stored on a Mini SD card. I pulled the card from my Nuvi and popped it into the computer to see what's on there. There are 4 or 5 files associated with the map. I deleted the files and reformated the Mini SD card using the FAT32 setting. I reinistalled the card into my GPS. Prior to connecting the GPS to my PC, I uploaded the latest version of Garmin Express. Once that was loaded I reconnected the GPS and had to re-register the unit. Once that was done the software told me that there was a new update. I ran the update. Lo and behold . . . after about 25 minutes the map was successfully loaded to my Nuvi and it was working as it should.
Sounds like it's broken. If it's new, I'd return it if you can. Even if it's something you can get past on your own it may indicate other problems and you don't want to risk it going out when you need it.
This happened with mine too. Mine is an a800 polaroid digital camera. i had some AAA batteries from an old remote control and they didnt have any juice left in them after 5 minutes. So i kept trying different AAA batteries and it wont even turn on!
Have you tried updating the firmware? A new version is available from the Pioneer website. You will need a blank, formatted SD card. Unzip the files from the Pioneer download and copy to the SD card. With the key out of the ignition put the SD card into the unit. Put the key in the ignition and turn to position I to turn on the F700BT. The update takes around 10-15 minutes. Ensure that no unnecessary electrical accessories are on in order to save battery life.
This same thing happened to me recently. My reader seemed to stopped working after I accidentally dropped my phone at work. I tried everything from formatting it to trying different memory cards and nothing worked.
I manually added the music files on my 1gb SD card at first and figured I should do it again and it didn't work. I then synced my music through Windows Media Player but that still didn't do the trick.
The solution in the end was to take the SD card out of the phone, turn the phone off, put the SD card back in while the phone is off, turn the phone back on, and then update your library. If that doesn't work you may have a faulty reader that came with some of the phone when they first came out.
