Re: Garmin 3350 GPS
Is your Nuvi plugged into the USB port of the PC?
The Nuvi should show up as an external drive. Look in your Windows Explorer or My Computer. It should say "Nuvi" and a drive letter, like "K" or "J", etc.
Just drop and drag the files into the Nuvi or right click on the file and select "copy" and then using Windows Explorer or My Computer, click on the Nuvi and whatever folder you want the file to go in and right click, than select paste.

Hi, The img file that comes on the sd card must be contained in a folder called "Garmin". If the img file is not within this folder then it will look for the original img file on the SatNav itself.
I hope this works for you.
I also had this problem while trying to register a Nuvi 205W. I talked to someone at Garmin tech support and found that I was using USB cable that was only meant to plug in to my computer to recharge the unit. I have now sent for a data transmission USB cable, will see if that solves the problem when it arrives. Hope this helps.
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.
I am not aware of a GPS unit that will allow you to do that at this time, I'm sorry to say. You might check with Garmin (www.garmin.com) as they do have GPS units designed for more professional travel, and may have a similar feature, but as far as I know, they do not. Good luck.31
From your description this sounds like normal functioning unless I am missing something. When the unit is connected with the USB cable to a computer, it will appear as a storage device (i.e. disk drive) to the computer. I.e. Open 'My computer' and you should see it in the list of devices as another disk drive such as E: or F: or whatever the next available drive letter is on your computer. Now open the drive letter and you will see the files in the NUVI. On mine I see the user's manual as a .pdf (Adobe) file. I don't have explanantions of what the other files contain, but I believe in the user's manual there are explanations for at least some of the files. One or more contain user data and this gives you a way to back up this information so that if you perform a software upgrade that erases all this data, you can re-load it into the Garmin when you are done with the upgrade. You can copy any of these files to your computer by doing a typical file copy operation. I would be careful not to delete any files unless you know what you are doing. I believe deleting some files may cause the Garmin to stop operating, but I'm not sure.
