Question about Magellan eXplorist 500 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Downloads title only

Wen I upload goecaches to my reciever I can only bring up the directory (file name) which reads empty file. I tried first on SD card which worked initially then lost the information. Thinking I had a SD card problem, I removed the card and tried to upload to internal memory I got the same results, only this time it didn't work at all. I am using Magellon Geocache manager software

I had this problem also with my 500. I worked around it by putting numbers only in the first column and naming in the next column I think. I do not have the program in front of me but work with that. I will double check later if you still have prob.

Whenever i try to import pictures from my kodak 4g sdhc card i get a prompt saying that the directory name is invalid i have over 800 pictures ad really dont want to lose them all anything i can do?


Try inserting the SD memory card into an USB memory card reader and plug it into the USB port of a working computer. This computer will see the SD memory card as an external storage device then you can open the image folder to copy the photos to your computer.
If this does not work the try the Recuva program.
Recuva (pronounced"recover") is a freeware Windows utility to restore files that havebeen accidentally deleted from your computer. This includes files emptied fromthe Recycle bin as well as images and other files that have been deleted byuser error from digital camera memory cards or MP3 players. It will even bringback files that have been deleted from your iPod, or by bugs, crashes andviruses!
  • Simple to use interface - just click 'Scan' and choose the files you want to recover
  • Easy to use filter for results based on file name/type
  • Simple Windows like interface with List and Tree view
  • Can be run from a USB thumb drive
  • Restores all types of files, office documents, images, video, music, email, anything.
  • Supports FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, exFAT, NTFS, NTFS5 , NTFS + EFS file systems
  • Restores files from removable media (SmartMedia, Secure Digital, MemoryStick, Digital cameras, Floppy disks, Jazz Disks, Sony Memory Sticks, Compact Flash cards, Smart Media Cards, Secure Digital Cards, etc.)
  • Restores files from external ZIP drives, Firewire and USB Hard drives
  • It's fast, tiny and takes seconds to run!

How to save ringtone download to the phone


Create a folder named 'ringtones' (without the quotes) in the root of your SD card, and copy the files (mp3, wma, ogg) you want to use as ringtones to that folder. Then, as usual, if you either edit the contact entry you want to set one of the newly copied ringtones to, or open the dialer's default ringtone settings, the files you copied should appear in the selection list.
Hope it works for you.
Anyway, please, let me know if I can help you any further, since it would also work if you copied those files directly to the internal '/system/media/audio/ringtones' directory, but it would mean you would have to mount the '/system' directory as a read-write drive, and set write permissions to those directories beforehand. Such operations are far more complicated than the SD card solution, but I could explain them to you, if you really want.
Best regards, Carlos

USAGE OF MEMORY CARD


I am thinking that you need to put the files into a specific directory. For example, for my HTC Hero, I have to create a directory on my SD card named Music. Other brands may have different requirements for the phone to recognize your media files.

Check with your phone's manual or do a Google search.

Good luck.

How can I set a ringtone that I have on my SD card as a download as a contact ringtone?


If you want them off the SD card, they need to be in a specific directory. Mount your SD card, and from your computer, create the following directories (if they are not there already):

-create a folder named media
-within this folder, create a folder named audio
-within this folder, create a folder named ringtones

Copy any audio files into that ringtones directory. I know mp3 and ogg files will work.

Unmount your SD card. Reboot your phone, and when you want to assign a ringtone, any of the newly copied ones should be on your list.

Why won't WMPlayer recognize my Ipod?


I heard that the IPod was made to run just with I Tunes from Apple. Wen you upload a file from your computer to the IPod, it changes the name of file, and other things too, so the IPod just read these names. Thats why some people don´t like Ipod, i´m one of them.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20 SD Card Reading Issue


Plug you camera into USB. Go to My Computer and find a drive device named External Drive or USB Storage etc. Click on this and you should see a folder named DCIM (digital camera EXIF standard Digital Camera IMage folder. This is your cameras memory card.

Click on this and find a subfolder(s) named according to manufacture. For Panasonic it would be 100_PANA or maybe 101_PANA. These are you picture folders. Click on one to find pictures. Drag and Drop folder to computer to download them.

Micro SD problem loading music


Just a guess, but I'm thinking the problem may lie in the format of the media. Try to format in FAT32. Also make sure that the full card is used ( don't do only 500mb or such ) FAT file system used to only allow a certain amount of space for
(F)ile (A)llocation (T)ables, and I think only a certain length of file names ( I'm thinking 8 character ), while FAT32 allows for 32 character file names, and allows for more FAT table information. I wouldn't ty NTFS if it does allow, as some portable devices do not read them, but fat and fat32 should be universal...
