It's looking for its program files that are on the SD card. You either replaced it with a different card or you overwrote it and they are gone. If you have the original card with the files intact, remove the card you put in and replace it with the original. Some units require the card some don't. I am guessing yours is a T5B model.
If you overwrote it you'll need a new one from RM Tech Support. Call 877-446-4863

    You have a few corrupted files internally. This is a message that might be misleading. Contact Rand Support to obtain a new update SD Card to upgrade you to the new version and maps. Be sure to have your serial number handy, (back side, bottom right).

GPS unit is stuck on the main screen, and wont turn off


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

o reset your TomTom device, do the following:

Message on screen "Insert a SD into slot...


Normally the sd card holds the programme and the maps so the satnav will not run without it. If it is already in place, take it out, wipe over the contacts with a dry cloth and reinsert it. If there is no sd card then it will not work-it has no programme.

Magellan roadmate sd card error


I had a similar error and I fixed it. That is, as far as I know...

Here's my theory: The SD card is acting like it has an error on it. This often happens when it is removed improperly.

HERE'S HOW TO FIX IT:

  1. Remove your SD card from your GPS
  2. Insert your SD card into an SD card reader or connect it to your PC
  3. Wait for windows to go through it's process of discovering your the "removable storage device" your just connected (see step 2)
  4. (This step may be different depending on what version of Windows you are using or depending on how you have your OS laid out). Look at the lower right hand corner of your desktop. There should me a small icon there with a green circle and a check mark. It looks like this...877f33f.jpg
  5. Click that with the right mouse button.
  6. It will say "Safely Remove Hardware" - Left click that message.
  7. A window will pop up allowing you to select your SD card and "Safely Remove" it (it will have a letter name like "drive F" for example).
  8. Wait for the windows to tell you it is ok to remove your hardware - then remove your SD card form the PC
  9. Make sure your GPS is turned off.
  10. Insert the SD card into your GPS.
  11. Turn on your GPS
  12. That's all! I hope I was able to help.
IF THIS HELPED, please leave a comment indicating that it did! If it did not help, please let me know that as well.

I just purchased a Garmin Language Guide SD Card 010-10672-00. I inserted the smaller chip into the SD adapter and inserted the unit into my Nuvi 760 which is already loaded with a sample of the Oxford...


First do a back up of all your GPS data.
Then erase the lex pkg on the Garmin (the limited version that came free)
Then insert your language sd card it should ask you if you want to load the language pkg
to the garmin say yes then remove the card and it should all work ...
