The flashing X is usually asscosiated with a corrupt memory card or a pirate copy of a map.
if it is the later then restore the device from a backup to go back to your original map.

If it is a corrupt card then carry on reading below

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 need 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


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

It should now work

My phone comes on but it only says samsung nothing else and power button doesnt turn phone off ?

The advantage of owning a Samsung device is that you can take the battery out for a coupple of seconds and the phone will stay off. To fix the problem you must have some kind of knowledge on how to flash mobile devices.
You need to access the recovery option to reset your device, once the phone is back to factory default, it will boot normally. Another way is to use ODIN and flash a firmware. But then again, I suggest you look for someone with experience to help you out.

Could not open my usb

Open my computer in windows - start/computer (vista). If there a removable device being shown. if you remove and reinsert does anything come up? If nothing comes up but it shows in Computer, right click on it and choose the format option (assuming you have not saved anything on it yet). If the usb can be read on another computer without issue, usb device is ok and usb port on your computer is at fault. test with another usb key or device you know works. if it does then your key may have an issue, or may be in a format your key does not understand. can be UDF or FAT.

I just bought this thing and I am reding where it says to read what is on my computer screen but nothing is coming up

First, make sure the hold/lock switch is not engaged.
There are three programs that the manual references - Philips Device Manager, Philips Media Converter, and Windows Media Player. There is nothing automatic about these programs. You have to run the installation CD, and open the programs.

Also, remember that the music menu, video menu, etc do not show up WHEN the mp3 player is connected to the computer - they only show up AFTER you have disconnected the mp3 player from the computer.

That is the best answer I can give you with the question you posted.

Sandisk crezer 4GB micro wont work

Try this,
Note:I assume you are on win XP.

Right click on my  computer and click manage.
Now on left side please select Device manager and look on the right side if you have any device that says "Unknow Device" or any device that is showing an Exclaimation Mark. If any of this exists then right click on that and uninstall. After this unplug your Flash drive and restart your computer and try inserting flash drive if it works or not.
If not, again go to device manager and expand an option that says "Disc Drives". Please check if it shows anything related to your Cruzer Flash Drive. If it's there, then go to Disc Management that will be there on left side of this same window. There, you need to look for your Removable disc and right click on it and click change drive letter. Now choose a different drive letter preferable one of the last alphabets like Z. After this click OK and now try going to my computer to check if it appears or not.
Moreover, if none of these solutions work please get back to me with some more info like if you have U3  on your Cruzer that comes preinstalled on your flash drive and the version of your OS.
