No chkdsk of any kind will work regardless of what switches I try. Formatting is a "no go" as well. It's as if the disk has turned itself into read only.
I posted this as a thread of its own,but maybe i can get an answer here:
For some weeks now (i do not exactly when it started and why) I noted that the history folder in may edge 705 shows very strange folders with unrewritable names. I cannot opend those folders (source data not found - or something like this in German) and i cannot delete them. They take a lot of space in he range of some GB (which of course is not provided in the internal memory). Well, never mind. But as a matter of fact the data collected with the edge is faulty and partly cannot be read with training center or basecamp. Expecially the tracks are not shown in the maps installed (no data to show) and no altimeters.
Dos anybody know what's the matter with my garmin and what to do? Is it necessary to format the internal drive and is it possible and how?
Thank's a lot
I own a Garmin eTrex HC (no SD memory, just 24MB internal). I'm wondering if I can still use the ******* Garmin maps since it has such pitiful storage capacity.
Oh and also I'm not able to access the devices storage. It doesn't show up as a storage device when I plug it in so I can't copy over the .img files etc..
Please help. Thanks
No startup screen on a nüvi 255
..I have small problems with a nüvi 255: when I switch it on or I connect it to the pc there is no startup screen displayed! Only all black till the "nüvi 255 - Copyright 2011 - and so on is written at the bottom of the display. All the same which pic I select (Tools - Picture Viewer - "the pic" - Info - Display at power on?) it is not displayed at start up. Firmware 7.40, had the same problem with older firmwares, no problems with the same settings on two nüvi 205..
Anybody any idea?
Thank you for your help! But how to flash the the logo? The "nuvi_drive.ico" is in folder "Garmin" on the nüvi....
Tell me the HwID of the nuvi. If you don't know it just post the Garmin Device.xml file from the memory.
not safe to post device.xlm on forum-
check HWID in GarminDevice.xml-
you'll find a line like this : < PartNumber>006-B1101-00</PartNumber>
where 1101 is your device HWID
@ catymag: Thank you!
Thank you both of you!
Had a look into the diagnostic pages, the second page is "Version Information" then "Start Test" then "More", there I found "Splash" and "Erased" in the same line....
