Hi, the Garmin Nuvi 660 will only read SD Cards up to a capacity of 4Gb, the card must only be SD not SDHC. Also it is faster and a better policy to have and use a card reader on your computer to input the data to the SD card first before inserting it into your SatNav.
You can also free up a lot of your sat nav memory by deleating unwanted voices and pre installed unwanted mp3's by connecting your satnav to the computer and deleating them, you have quiet a few foreign languages in your memory incl Chez, French, German Ect-Ect

I had the same problem! until I realized that the Nuvi 660 can take up to two minutes to create the music database once it is turned on. Before that, switching to the mp3 player will show no music available... not even a message saying "plaese wait". I was scared that the player was not working until I tried a small 500 Mb card, and there it took about 20 sec to display the music library. With the 4Gb card fully loaded with 500 tracks, it is more than 2 minutes... It's pity that Garmion does not warn the user about this problem.

Are the songs in MP3 format? Typically you connect the GPS to the PC using the USB interface and using Windows Explorer, drag & drop the MP3 files into the GPS's MP3 subdirectory.

Then on the main screen, select travel tools and then the MP3 player. Select browse and choose a song.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

The Nuvi series cannot read SDHC cards. It only supports SD.

4gb is the highest-capacity SD card you can buy.

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..

I have the a Casio Keyboard that has an SD slot, but whenever i put songs on my SD card & then plug it into the keyboard, it says that there is an ERROR . What am i supposed to do . Step by Step . to...


Does it say ERR NO FILE? If so, then read on. The reason you have this error is because you don't have a folder on your sd card named MUSICDAT. Solution:
  1. Insert your sd card into computer
  2. Make folder called MUSICDAT.
  3. Then, transfer all files inside the folder (make sure your songs are in MIDI format).
  4. Safely remove your sd card.
  5. You're ready to put it in you Casio Keyboard!
If you still get the error, take time to read you manual. Read the "using the sd card" part. The folder name might be different for your Casio Keyboard (because mine's a CTK-5000).
...and IF you still get the error, perhaps the songs you meant in your question are MP3 songs (like the ones you play on the iPod)? Then, that's a different topic... :)
Well then, good luck!

I dont know how to put music in the sd card


To add music to your DSi, first you need a spare sd card, and a pc or laptop that can sync with the card. Remember that the DSi only plays AAC type songs, so convert the songs you want to copy-paste on the card. This can be done easily on Itunes on which I use by right-clicking on the song and it will show you there ' convernt to AAC'. After saving the songs , take out the card from the pc or laptop and you can now insert the card in your DSi and play music and enjoy.

I can't get songs on my micro SD card for my cell phone


No, Im Sorry But Adaptors Are Incapable Of Holding Memory, And You Shouldn't Take Out The Micro SD Before You Remove The SD Card, You Should Also Try Putting In The Micro SD Card And Going To Tools And Enter Into The Memory Option And Selecting Card, Then Using The Options Button Format It, Then Put It Back Into You Computer And Save All Your Songs To The Folder Named my_music This Should Work, And Just So You Know The Phone Will Not Play All Of The Songs That You Put On It For Some Reason, Its Some Formatting Conflict The Songs Can Be In .wma Format Or .mp3 not .mp4 or any other types.

Samsung instinct, Micro SD card can't remove music. write-protected?!?


Usually you should be able to take the SD card out of your phone and put it in a universal card reader (around $30.00 cost) connected to you computers USB port. The SD card will come up as an external drive icon on your desktop. When you open the SD card icon on your desktop by clicking on it the contents of the card should be right there visable. Just drag whatever you don't want on the card off the card and into the trash. It should no longer be on the SD card when you reinsert it in your phone.

Getting songs from the sd card to show on my phone


To find your music on the SD, go to my stuff, sounds, external memory, mp3 and you should see your music. Playing it, however is another matter. You can play only one song. Then you have to manually play the next one. Not what I'd call an MP3 player.

SD card in MP3 player


Was the SD card in the MP3 player when you loaded the songs or did you load them some other way?  You may have to first put the SD card in the MP3 player first, then load the songs onto the player.
