    No man I need to know how tp put them on thesd card, ive got a 2 gig card here cause it wont let me delete the original one, but can I just copy and past both ocmpletel folders on the card and thats it? or do they have to be seperated and a bunch of other steps?

  • W O T Apr 01, 2008

    What exactly is the map data? I see the map folder, but even within that there is a few subfolders. Same with in the install sd folder, but i dont know what you mean by program folder.

    I also downloaded the 3rd file you posted which was just a small single file

    Im willing to pay for your time if you help me get this working if you take paypal or escrow

    Thanks again

    I just tried, took my original SD card from finedrive, formatted it (right click drive and format is what I did), then oppenned up the Install SD folder, in which there was another single SD folder so I openned that. Copied the contents (DSKNAND folder, SW.ver file and upgrade_ce.exe file) and pasted them onto the SD card, loaded it into my finedrive and started the unit up. Still came up with the same problem and said cannot find map data files please make sure ur sd card is installed properly. it didnt start up any different and there was no updating or anything.

    Im now trying to just copy the contents of the MAP_SD folder to the sd card and seeing what that does, but it takes a while to load the gig of info on there so its gonna take a while.

    Any ideas?

    the trick is to copy the contents of the program sd forer and the data sd folder to the ROOT of the card, do not simply drag and drop the folders, open them and copy their contents...

    this is a two step process, first you wipe the card and copy the program files to it to update the unit, put it in the unit and start it to run them. once this is done you again wipe the card and copy the map data to it and then you are set to go...

  • vince954 Apr 02, 2008

    the install sd folder contains the program for the unit, the map sd folder contains the data.

    the third file is a word document with detailed step by step instructions. in summary.

    decompress the files you downloaded to a directory where you can find them or even the desktop.

    format the card using your pc

    on the pc open the install sd folder, select all the files and folders within and copy them to the sd card.

    install the card in the unit and power up, it will run an update program, when complete shut it off.

    format the card again.

    open the data sd folder, select all the files and directories, copy them all to the card...

    start the unti with the card inserted, you should be ready to go.

    if you are unable to do it, I can do it for you if you send me the unit,, you can email me at for details.

  • vince954 Apr 02, 2008

    I am not sure how to make this any simpler, you decompress the files you downloaded, these have folders in them. OPEN them, select the contents, and copy the CONTENTS to the ROOT of the SD card. if you dont understand, I suggest you have someone computer experienced do this as you also have to know how to format the sd card in the PC.

  • vince954 May 07, 2008

    Yes, the process is two steps, first you wipe the card (format or just delete the files). and open the install sd foler, select its contents and copy them to the card. then you boot the unit with the card in it to update it.

    Step two is to wipe the card again and then open the map sd foler and copy its contents to the root of the card.

    I have been selling a dvd on ebay with the files and instructions if anyone needs them. I have been unable to find a decent site to post them as they are huge files.

Hey every one im looking for kdl-w40a12u sony bravia schematic diagrams, can anyone help me with that please.thanks a ton in advance

The world is full of free, useful information but schematics for tv sets are not part of the equation. If you want them, you usually have to pay for them. Maybe if you post the specific problem you're having, I can help point you in the right direction as far as fixing it. Schematics don't fix tv's, people do.
