    Thank lolypop000 for the firmwares . i think there is a hardware problem because i updated the nuvi with the cure that you send me, the pc detects the garmin as mass storage but the error in the autorun of virus stills, checking the folder structure found a folder calling recycled with a virus inside calling J:\RECYCLER\S-5-3-42-2819952290-8240758988-879315005-3665\jwgkvsq.vmx. So i try to delete everthing is ok until i unplug/plug the device again , and the folder still. the same problem if i try to delete a file or another folder. checking in the internet the file infected its a virus that infected in usb storages, trying everything to remove but until moment cannot removed even trying delete in linux. and cannot write nothing in the storage of garmin because hangs os and the systema cannot recognized the garmin until power off/on.
    In the other hand use another cure make follow "How to make a service (cure) firmware for your Garmin unit " but manually withouth the garmin cure software and adding
    Find and Replace everywhere in the .rgn (boot+fw_main):
    30 00 3A 00 2F to 00 00 3A 00 2F
    31 00 3A 00 2F to 00 00 3A 00 2F
    30 3A 2F to 00 3A 2F
    31 3A 2F to 00 3A 2F

    so with this firmware its the same with you cure, but i can start the program, cannot detect satellites , enter to the "check system" hold the battery icon and the ram passed but the rom stills in checking. and the strange is that the model is 2w not 205w. Thing someone change the firmware and its not the original. Because a buy used in ebay
    Thanks for all

    I try but this not solve unfortunately. Just for understand the problem I will explain how is the process that I do to change the firnware because is not normal in my nuvi.
    put the file in the updater press ok
    message uploading appers and the bar fill to 100% inmediatly, then the screen of the nuvi shows "software missing" , no matter the firmware used ,and here is the key.
    if i wait the updater shows error message

    App: Updater
    At: 3/21/2012 11:22:18 PM (UTC)
    OS: WIN32 Windows Platform, Major Version: 6, Minor Version: 1 Service Pack 1
    Processor: Intel Processor Level: 15, RAM: 1506616 KB
    IOU_UTILITIES.CPP-203-2.8

    and finalize the process .
    but if i unplug the usb, power off and power on when the nuvi preboot again, continues with the erasing and then uploading the firmware
    this is the only way to work the updater.
    coming on the virus problem , any change that made on the storage of nuvi, supposted delete everything ,when i unplug and plug again all restored to original state, if i try to copy from pc to nuvi the usb lose the connection like quit the hardware, i don't know maybe the flash is broken and its read only
    crazy!
    thanks

    @ yaguis

    The above RECYCLER dir and file reside on your nuvi 205w, drive j?

    Ewww, I believe you've been infected with the conficker / Kido virus.

    Google search for THE WHOLE LINE you show there -> [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Plenty of info in the link there to help you remove it. It looks like a beotch to clean.

    Free Kido virus removal tool from Kaspersky. I strongly suggest you read the full page before executing it.

    Texas thanks for your help, but he problems is that when i used an antivirus, in my case the panda antivirus detects the virus and remove it when i plug the garmin, check in the folder and everything is ok, but when i unplug and plug again the same history happens, the virus stills, i donīt know maybe the virus its in a region of the memory of the garmin i think. or its the firmware infected maybe if i get it another firmware version to test like version 6.5 and up, because i try version 6 and dont function.

    yaguis, That's because the virus is likely active in the RECYCLER directory on the nuvi. From there it executes itself every time the nuvi gets plugged in, hence why you see what you see every time you re-plug the nuvi in.

    You need to delete the RECYCLER directory(it doesn't belong on the nuvi anyways), then do a complete and full virus and rootkit scan of your nuvi and computer with the latest signature update from Panda.

    Conficker was licked some time ago so long as one kept their OS and antivirus updated.

    but this is what id do? delete the recycle an run the antivirus but when the antivirus try to scan de nuvi freeze and the usb connection lost. I try to delete from linux, and the delete of the recycler folder ,the autorun.inf and the boot.exe was succesfull until replug and all appears again. so i think taht the problem is the firmware. I open the firmware in the hex program and see that from region 98 to region FE2 only 00,is that normal?

    Clear your PC from viruses first! Then recover your Nuvi.
    Sony SL10=>HP 1930=>1940=>Toshiba e755=>Loox N520=>Acer n311+Huawei ETS688=> Fujitsu-Siemens Loox N560 WM6=>Dell Axim x51v=> Huawei s7 s-105 (FW 2.2.2 Sweden) + Nokia N78. Garmin Forerunner 405. I love flash Garmin devices.
