My Garmin nuvi 760 does not find any MP3 files on the SD Card Drive. It finds them fine if I put them on the unit itself but nothing on the SD card.

Hi,

Was the SD Card formatted using the built-in format function of the Garmin nuvi 760? If, not pls try, if yes, pls try another card or the same card to another device that can make use of such type of memory card.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a garmin nuvi 760, and I am trying to put mp3 files on it through an SD memory card. I have re-formatted the card 5 times, and my gps still isn't reading it. How can i fix this?


Garmin states.... The most common reason the GPS would not recognize the the audio files is the file format. The GPS will not read any file format other than the mp3 format, such as itunes (mp4) format, wave files, Windows media player files etc.... If the files will not read from from the internal memory of the GPS, the file format is the most likely cause......

Loading mp3 files to garmin nuvi 350


The device is not recognizing the file name. The Garmin GPS will only recognize MP3 files. Ipod (MP4) and other media files will not play. Converting the files to the MP3 format will correct the problem.

Garmin Nuvi 200W SD card Problem


The problem is that the US 2008NT map takes up about 900MB, the update itself will push that up to 947MB. The Nuvi 200w has an internal memory of 1GB, the Help folder takes about 35MB and the text and speech files for all those other languages that you don't use or understand takes up about 30MB. So if you add all those up you come up with more than 1GB, and the SD card cannot be used for the US mapset (preloaded). It can only be used for additional map sets that you want to add like Europe, Mexico, Australia etc etc. So how do you update? Well you are going to have to decide if you really need all those extra voice and text languages such as Aafrikans, German, Spanish etc etc. If not, get rid of them. Also consider getting rid of the Help Folder since it's actually pretty useless, but I leave that up to you to decide.

Now for 3-belmont-E, your friends and yourself should have realized that the Garmin units read SD, not SD-HC which are different. When you got the 1GB SD card, it should come up as another drive. It will not show up as a folder on the Garmin unit itself, for example....
Your main drive is C: and your CD/DVD is D:, when you plug in the Garmin it becomes E: but if you have an SD card that will become F: so in reality your Garmin device will now be E and F, with F being the SD card. This is of course if the SD reader in the unit did not get damaged by you guys putting in the SD-HC card into it.
