    Correction: I believe that the SDCard Method using update.txt and LDR.bin will not work when GarminCure3 is loaded in Cure Mode.
    Cure Firmware traps early to Mass Storage mode.
    Maybe Kunix can confirm this ?

    Tried the files for the MTK chipset and got the same result. The device merely acts as a double storage device.

    I've even tried using different SD cards with the same result. Is the format of the SD card relevant?

    Cards formatted as either FAT16 or FAT32 can be read by the unit. I think dasilvarsa is right, the loader is not initiated because of the cure fw present.

    Your Pc see nuvi or not?
    If you can see Garmin then format again with prepusb and after format create empty folder with name Garmin.

    for pre boot try this:

    Open updater.exe window

    Add finger in uper left corner of screen and hold it, with other finger hold power button to the left and with other hand connect nuvi to Pc and updater must see your nuvi.

    2 things are important for success:

    1 Before doing anything Drag&Drop the rgn file you want to flash to your device in Updater.exe and it will open in your desktop.
    2 The appropriate .rgn file must be in the same directory as the updater.exe.

    My PC recognizes the nuvi. When I attach it to the Windows XP PC, the nuvi appears in my system as an F Garmin drive and the SD slot as G Garmin drive if there is an SD in the slot or not.

    I am at work now so I can't use the boss's computer for downlowding, formatting, etc. but I previously formatted the nuvi with RMPrepUSB with these settings: Max/GARMIN/Set part as non bootable/MS DOS Bootable/Boot as FDD/Fat 32. I did the same thing to my SD card as well. After I used GarminCure3 and formatted my nuvi, I have never again been able to get the PC to recognize it as a Garmin. In the Hardware System Manager or whatever it is called, the nuvi appeared as a Garmin device prior tot GarminCure3 (when I could get the computer to recognize it at all - I was having firmware issues prior to all of this, obviously). Now it appears as a secondary device or something (I can't remember specifcally).

    I've made multiple attempts at holding the power button while simultaneously pressing the upper left corner of the screen and plugging in the USB cable (it would be easier if I had a third hand). But it seems like the nuvi is not recognizing the pre-boot attempts.

    Normal because you loaded cure.

    Correct

    Have you dragged original .rgn in updater.exe ? Try this: shutdown Nuvi, attach it USB, it will start by itself and you wont have to press ON button, but just immediately before it starts hold on your finger on upper left corner.
    If you loaded the .rgn in Updater and ticked USB ,you'll get for some seconds you nuvi model in Updater, this is the moment to hit ok.
    Try and retry, this is the only way to revive your nuvi.

    I will try the .rgn drag and drop suggestion when I get home.

    I am beginning to suspect that my touchscreen is not sensing my finger press or not properly processing said finger press. The touchscreen was working to put me in this state but now it is not. Or the device is not properly sensing the power button; it turns on the device but doesn't power it off no matter how long I hold it in position. So there is something awry that is preventing me from executing a pre-boot.
