Genx pe4ndrive.when I insert in lap top click to open it is displays not formatted.when I clic formatting button it is displayed that i will loose all memory of pen drive it's data.

Try it on an other computer... if that fails, it might have developed bad sectors (spots) reformat and do a scan, which writes and reads all memory locations... might be corrupted and/or broken, but try another computer first to make sure it is not a driver issue.

My Vin 2000 Olympic Digital Recorder

when you press rec the lamp
should glow red this leads me to
believe that there is a problem with
the way the buttons are registering

Did you try resetting everything
1 Hold the STOP button, and hold the ERASE button for 3
seconds or longer.
2 Press the + or – button to select the “YES”.
3 Press the ENTER button.(imediately)

If the warranty period has expired
I would risk opening the case to check
the recording button to see if it can be
repaired cleaned similar to a remote
controls' or replaced.

Only hard reset cleans up memory, when corrupted.

Hold Mode and Start buttons for 10 seconds (device off). Then without releasing pulse press lap/reset button, you'll get a screen for confirmation, all data lost, including user data and routes.

I need to delete currupted data on my ps2 memory card

Plug in the PS2 memory card and dont put in a disk,and hit the power button once,like you would to start the machine.Then a screen with flying orbs(or cubes I cannot remember)should show up in the backround.Then hit the X button to enter the next menu.It should show your memory card,or two if you have two in.Select the memory card and hit X.After that it will dive into the files.Go to the memory that is corrupt and hit X,then find the delete function and hit X again.The memorys icon should fly in circles and get smaller,like its getting flushed down a invisible toilet.If you do not know the corrupted data,you may have to go through and delete memory untill you find the corrupted file.Also corrupted data can interfere with gameplay and make it impossilbe to load some games.I hope it helped.

Cant delete gpx files from 705 edge memory. done all usuall stuff on pc, even tried deleting gpx folder but routes still appear in saved rides when unit re-powered up. any ideas anyone?

Only one idea ... Perform hard reset. Garmin devices have often data corruption issue, that can only be solved by return to factory settings :
Device powered off, press and hold mode and Power on buttons for 10 seconds, then pulse press lap/reset button.

You will be asked for confirmation, confirm, your device should be OK then.
Also update the firmware, you'll get last fixes for data corruption ... (does not mean there are none remaining ...)

Memory corruption

Not garbage - you need the latest firmware upgrade from Philips. Open the Device Manager that came with the install CD, or go to to get it, and click on "Update" instead of "Repair." It should lead you through the firmware upgrade process - make sure you are connected to the internet first.
