    Great news for you [so far, but not 'out of the woods' yet by any means]. Next is to make a backup of the unit's internal files and then we'll delete them to see if the unit will work. As this unit cannot process 'if error' command, we need to go step at a time.

    First make a backup of the current SD card contents to your PC. Then remove update.log and Last_ID.bin. Make an additional empty root folder named 'Backup' [no quotes]. Change the update.txt content to:

    copydir,0:/GPX/,1:/Backup/
    reboot

    It will take a while so be patient, use at least a 2GB card, preferably 4GB or more. You should have a full copy of the internal files in the Backup folder of the SD card after the reboot.

    If that works, backup the card again to your PC and again remove update.log and Last_ID.bin. Now do this:

    ergn,48
    reboot

    Hopefully afterwards the unit will now be visible in Mass Storage Mode. If so create a Garmin folder and after another reboot connect it to WebUpdater & MapUpdater to replace missing files [or use GarminExpress if you wish instead] add a basemap and you should be good to go.
    If not, post again and i guess we'll have to erase 41 [or whatever kunix suggests]. Late here, so logging out now.

    Neil, erasing 41 is must do in this situation
    Instead of "ergn,48" we can just format with RMPREPUSB using GarminCure3 or QuickCure3. We have to format it anyway, even after "ergn,48".

    If what he wrote in post #1 is correct that doesn't work [usual curing with cure3, dunno if he used quickcure3]. You have the con Captain, i'm off to bed ......

    I'm receiving the following update.log:
    nьvi 2 Series Software Version 6.40, UID: 353*******, HWID: 353********
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Parsing "copydir,0:/GPX/,1:/Backup/"
    Error
    Parsing "reboot"
    Success
    It seems that something is wrong again.

    On my own risk I changed Neil's update.txt as follows:
    copydir,0:/Garmin/,1:/Backup/
    reboot
    update.log shows:
    nьvi 2 Series Software Version 6.40, UID: 353*********, HWID: 353***********
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Parsing "copydir,0:/Garmin/,1:/Backup/"
    Success
    Parsing "reboot"
    Success

    Backup directory contains full backup of the unit.

    So I suppose I should go with next step:
    ergn,48
    reboot
    Crossing fingers I'll give it a try.

    Well, this is not good...
    Try ergn,41. Then flash GarminCure3-ed firmware. Then format with RMPREPUSB.

    If I try this:
    del,0:/Garmin/
    Is this the correct command and can it help?
    I think that will delete the whole directory, am I right?

    I have no idea if this is correct. What I do know is that it's useless You're going to format the internal flash drive region 48 anyway. What's the purpose of deleting any folders?
    Also I suggest trying the full format, as quick format could leave bad blocks undetected.

    OK - I'll do it, but tomorrow as I''m too tired and as I'm tired I'll make some stupid mistake.
    What do you mean with full format - RMPREPUSB do full format don't it?
