I accidentally delete all data from the internal memory of my Nuvi 255 ( it is not a W only 255 ). I had a backup. But the cd do not read anymore. He is damaged.
How do I recover the internal memory of my GPS.
Yes the nuvi still boot, but the webupdate don't find the device.
Ok....create the folder Garmin (if not exist,obvious) in root of your device
In this folder Garmin,create the file Garmindevice.xml
Turn on device.....turn off device.....connect it to the PC and run the Web Updater
I don't know how to create a xml file. I use a Garmindevice.xml from a nuvi 40, webupdate find the devise but it think it is a 40 not a 255. How to create a Garmindevice.xml for a nuvi 255?

Do you have Garmindevice.xml inside folder Garmin?
If you have look if you have garmindevice.xml or garmindevice.tmp.
If you have garmindevice.tmp just rename it to garmindevic.xml
Let us know if you have something in Garmin folder.
If you have empty folder then i send you backup for this nuvi
Open the file Garmindevice.xml with text editor (also Notepad) and post the script in TAG [CODE] (delete/without your serial number,please)
Don't use garmindevice.xml from nuvi 40 becouse webupdater will download files for nuvi 40.
Please answer me if you have something in Garmin folder, if you don't have i send you backup with xml.
You don't need to create garmindevice.xml, nuvi will create by itself.I don't know how to create a xml file
On nuvi create empty folder Garmin.
Turn nuvi on, off and connect to Pc.
Now you will see garmindevice.xml in your folder Garmin on nuvi.
Look only if you have on the end .tmp or .xml.
If you have .tmp just rename it to .xml and run webupdater.

Look in inventory page what bootBLK do you have is 851 0r 1074
Hold battery icon for 10 sec (if this dont work then hold clock), then go to page 2 and click on start test and then button More and you will be in inventory page.
Here you will see bootBLK and let me know what number is writen.
851 is normal
1074 is MTK
