If you have the programs downloaded from tomtom home then you need to copy them to the sd card that you purchased. In the home program you can choose to install the programs and map to the sd card. It takes a bit of a search to get the tomtom home program understood. The credit card with the codes is an authorization code for the program.

SOURCE: 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..

Tip

Save your TOMTOM


I can help some people who have problems with their TomTom but here is a tip for you to help yourself against future problems.

  • Backup your SD card to your PC.
  • Do this by removing the SD card from your TomTom. Insert it into an SD card reader conencted to your PC. Make a new folder on your PC called TomTom Backup. Then open that folder and copy all the files from your TomTom SD card into the TomTom Backup folder. Job done.
Data can be corrupted on SD cards and SD cards can easily be damaged. I you end up with a damaged card then at least you will have a backup of it on your PC. This can save you a lot of money as trying to get a TomTom going again without the software is very expensive.

good luck. homemender

Tomtom one (4N00.012) will not load up.


Your particular unit runs it's software from SD-Card. you need to check if the card is not damaged: while unpowered push the SD card to come out insert it in a card reader on your computer and see if it reads it ok, if it ask's you to format it it means it's damaged and should be replaced ( the sd card of your tomtom should be replaced with another SD card which you should buy from tomtom for your particular device not a generic one). if it reads just fine reinsert it and start the device again..And about the reset the correct procedure is: Press and hold the On/Off button until your device restarts. This can take more than fifteen seconds.904537f.gif
You should also install Tomtom Home on your computer, connect the device and update it if al the above failed (with a verified and working SD card inserted) - link for Tomtom Home: Windows, Mac

It sits in the dock with green light on but wont turn on. TomTom 910.


I'm presuming that it use to turn on,yes? try doing a soft reset by removing it from the dock and turning it over and removing the sd card (if you have one installed), and then, using a straightened paper clip or straight pin, locate the reset hole (about 1" to the left of the sd card slot) and push it for about 15 seconds. Hopefully after that you will be able to turn the unit on. If that doesn't work, you'll have to call tech support.

I can't get the dish to re format. Error meassage reads disk problem and a x in a red circle appears.


If you have an SD card in try removing that before you power up.
 
You may also want to try the hard reset.
Paper clip in the tiny hole by the card slot.
 
Push it in firmly whilst the unit is powered up (not too hard) for about 3 seconds then release
You may have to power down and then up again and even hold down the power button a little longer the first time you do this

The SD card may also need formatting properly.

This means it is not reading the SD card and that it needs to be re-formatted.

This is best done in a card reader and not the tomtom itself.
Right click on it and select format select FAT32 as the files system

Now connect the tomtom but don't let tomtom home run. exit TTH if need be.

You now ned to select your tom tom which will also show as a drive.

In windows explorer select tools then folder options. Click view and tick the box for "show hidden files and folders"
It may warn you but you can ignore it.

Then just copy ALL the files from the tom tom to your sd card

DO NOT USE CUT AND PASTE !

Once all the files are on switch off the tom tom and insert the sd card

It should now work

Want to up date the gps


If you have an SD card installed then
Remove the SD card from the tomtom

Try the hard reset.
Push a Paper clip in the tiny hole by the card slot.
Push it in firmly whilst the unit is powered up (not too hard) for about 3 seconds then release.

You may have to power down and then up again and even hold down the power button a little longer the first time you do this.

That would normally reset the tomtom.

If it does then get the latest version of TOMTOM HOME
Install it and run the program.

Now with your GPS tunred off connect it to your computer via a short USB lead.

TTH will now start up and from there you can update the tomtom itself.

If you are getting a red cross whilst bootng the GPS then
The card may need to be formatted properly first or re-formatted.

Formatting is better done in a card reader.

There are differing views but this method has always worked for me.
Insert the card in the reader,. Using my computer or windows explorer

right click on it and select format
select FAT32 as the files system

Now connect the tomtom to the pc but don't let tomtom home run.
Exit TomTom Home if need be.

You now need to select your tom tom which will also show as a drive and may even show its own special icon.

In windows explorer select tools then folder options.
Click view and tick the box for "show hidden files and folders"
It may warn you but you can ignore it.
then just copy ALL the files from the tom tom to your sd card.

DO NOT USE CUT AND PASTE !

Red cross on sd card on startup


You can not use a sd card from one TomTom and put it into another TomTom. The operating system on the card is coded for each individual TomTom device. First try doing a reset with the card installed on your dads TomTom. The reset hole is on the bottom of the TomTom marked reset Use a streightened paper clip, insert the paper clip into the hole until you feel a click then hold it in for 20 seconds. If that didn't work and you have a card reader insert your dads sd card into the reader and make a backup of the everything on the sd card. Just copy and paste everything on the card to a folder on the desktop you have created on your desktop. Next delete everything on the sd card EXCEPT the maps and ttgo.bif or ttgo.bak file. Now that you have made a backup and deleted everything on the sd card except for the maps and ttgo.bif or ttgo.bak open TomTom Home. TomTom Home should see your card and install the operating system back onto the sd card. If it doesn't you may have to insert the sd card back into your dads TomTom and connect it to the pc. It may take a few times of doing this to get the latest operating system back onto your dads TomTom. You can do the same for your TomTom, but you cannot use any thing bigger than a 2 gb sd card. Do not get sdhc cards they won't work. This will only put the operating system for your TomTom onto the sd card. When you have installed the operating system onto your device it will say "no maps found", you will have to buy the map from TomTom..

Memory Card


The DATA on your SD card has become corrupt or the SD card itself has become damaged / faulty. ..... Hopefully , some time back , you backed up your SD card to your computer ? . All you need do is format the card and then reload the files from your PC . If the tomtom still doesnt load up then you would need to purchase a NEW BLANK SD card and reload your backup onto it. If that doesnt solve your problem and if unfortunatly you didn't back up the original card then you will need to purchase a NEW TOMTOM SD card with activation code . Bad news and a learning process , always back up your tomtom card !
