The Garmin Nuvi 200w comes with a 1GB solid state drive. The problem lies with the fact that the North American map preloaded with the 200 series is already around 910MB plus the help files and additional languages most of us don't use like Russian, Korean, Japanese etc etc that push it past 980MB or so. Now do the math and you'll find that the 37MB update doesn't fit in there, so you can choose not to update.

You can plug the Nuvi to your PC and explore the Garmin folder and get rid of the Help folder, which will not hinder the operation of the unit but will disable the HELP button when you power up the unit, and you can also remove all the languages you don't use from the Speech and Text folders.

Also when you add a 1GB SD card to the Nuvi, it doesn't add the extra storage to the actual unit. It just allows you to add more maps or pictures to it, but you cannot update the main file in the Solid State Drive by just adding more memory. The main files' name is GMAPPROM.IMG by the way and it's the biggest one at around 900 some MB's. You can just follow my instructions above and you'll be fine, if by any chance you bought another map you could load it up on the 1GB SD card. Except for ALL of Europe because that's 1.4GB if you load up all of it, so I would choose only the countries I know I'd visit.

You can try recovery tool to see whether your memory card corrupted or not. For example, 4Card Recovery, which is able to recover various files in a few minutes.
Step one, download 4Card Recovery online and install it on your computer.
Step two, run it and choose the files that you want to recover, of course, you can choose recover all files in case of the omission of anything.
Step three, scan it by clicking the 'next' button and wait for about ten minutes.
Step four, save the recovered files on other part to avoid losing it again.
Hope you can solve the problem with this. Have a try.

You may use any SD card up to 2GB in size. Make sure you don't try larger SDHC cards, as they won't work.

Trying to install memory card did format and


Although you haven't stated the make, model and capacity of your memory card the information in your question suggests that you have used the wrong memory card.

The CD33 is compatible with SD memory cards but not with the later SDHC models (the HC means High Capacity). They'll fit into the camera just fine as they have the same shape as an SD card, but the CD33 chipset is incompatible at the basic hardware level and cannot format SDHC cards.

To complicate matters further, the original SD specification allowed up to a maximum 2GB, and this was later extended to 4GB but hardly any SD devices can use the 4GB cards without a firmware update. No firmware update was ever released to allow your camera to use 4GB SD cards. Your camera was also designed before 2GB SD cards were available so whilst it may be compatible in theory it was never tested with them.

I'd recommend that you stick to 1GB maximum SD cards unless you use a Kodak branded 2GB version: Kodak's website claims that your camera should work with their own brand card of that capacity, so if it doesn't you can claim on their warranty for a refund or maybe an exchange for two 1GB cards.

If all this is incorrect and you're using a regular SD card of no larger than 1GB then you either have a faulty card or a faulty camera. The only way to find out will be to try a new 1GB SD card from a major brand name. If the camera proves to be faulty then it's beyond economic repair as labour costs for diagnosing the fault alone will exceed the camera value.

I hope this reply has been of assistance and ask in return only that you rate my answer.

Try doing a complete formatting again.

If that does not work, delete partition and try doing formatting with a tool like the one below.
If the software below does not fix the problem, then replace the card.

HP ipaq with navtec gps software and sd card fails


Ok, nice job Robert,

I'm posting your solution here to remove it from the unsolved problems list.

Solution by Robert:
This problem was finally resolved as a corrupted map file on the SD memory card in the hp ipaq 5550. Solution was to reformat the memory card using fat32 memory format. I used a SD memory card slot on my laptop and right click the drive letter and select format to format the memory card. After that, I reloaded map files to the memory card and all was OK. Note that previously I had loaded map files on the memory card successfully but that was not good enough. A reformat of the memory card was apparently needed.
I had also previously tried a hard full reset of the ipaq by pressing and holding the lower two buttons (calendar and itask) while holding in the reset button with the stylus for 5 seconds and resynced my contacts and reloaded the gps software, but this was to no avail. Try the re-format.

My nextel does not read my memory card


This same thing happened to me recently. My reader seemed to stopped working after I accidentally dropped my phone at work. I tried everything from formatting it to trying different memory cards and nothing worked.

I manually added the music files on my 1gb SD card at first and figured I should do it again and it didn't work. I then synced my music through Windows Media Player but that still didn't do the trick.

The solution in the end was to take the SD card out of the phone, turn the phone off, put the SD card back in while the phone is off, turn the phone back on, and then update your library. If that doesn't work you may have a faulty reader that came with some of the phone when they first came out.

Hopefully that helped...
