SOURCE: My tomtomgo 710 SD card has been corrupted and I

Dicky smith stires sell TOMTOM and should be able to direct you to gettiong the maps reset on the card. The uniques ID is essential but if you still have proof of purchase you may get out of having to buy a new licence. Lost of peoplke have bought GPS off Ebay and then claimed faulty card and approached TOMTOM for replacement maps. They have wised up to the scammers now and want proof of purchase or else you pay again. But see what DSE says about the matter

Formatting a tomtom go 710


Hi, I probably cant answer all of your questions but I might help with some of them. You should be able to access your TomTom 710 without removing TomTom home software from your PC. It should be accesses as a drive through the USB connection in "my computer" on your PC. When a USB device is connected to your PC it appears as an external drive. Therefore you should be able to delete , load onto , or format the TomTom hard drive ( or with some other models the SD card ) as you would a normal drive . ( an example of this is where you might have a camer with SD memory card and relevant manufacturers software on your PC . you might connect your camera to the PC via USB and the camera software on your PC automaticly detects the camera for it to eb accesssed . However , the camera and it's SD card can also be accessed seperatly by going to "MY Compter" and it should also be visible there as an external UDB device / external drive ) . Now .. to another another question . If you do un-install TomTom home , I dont think it will also delete any backup of your TomTom , it will only delete TomTom Home software . ( the word "think" is mentioned because I have never tried this ). Besides that , you can choose in tomtom home , where you want any backups to reside , so you could save backups via TomTom home to a CD for istance. If you did that , then you would have the backup on a CD rather than your harddrive which means you could safely un-install TomTom home knowing that if it also removed any saved backup you would still have the CD with a backup on it. So , to summerise.... If it were me , I would make a backup of the TomTom by simply copying all the files on it by opening the TomTom up as a folder in "MY Computer" , simply drag any files and folders from the TomTom into a folder I have prepaired ( call it for instance "my tomtom backup" ) on my PC . Then I would format the TomTom drive then reinstall the backup and see what happens. If the TomTom still doesnt work properly , I would Format the tomtom again then use TomTom home to obtain all relivant files , then copy only the maps and .MAC files ( these are the authorisation files for the maps ) from my Backup to the TomTom manually ( not from tomtom home ). I would guess that would result in a working TomTom again ... Good luck.

Tom Tom is freezing


Hi, If you have a backup of the files ( either on your SD card or on some models like the 910 , the internal hard drive ) you can try formatting the media then copying the backup files over onto it. It's likely that files / data is corrupted on the SD card / hard drive and that is why your tomtom freezes. Anyone reading this , Backup your TomTom SD card or its hardrive to your PC , do it now as it can save a lot of pain later. if you don't have a backup already , try and make one now . it's also possible your SD card has become faulty but if you can get the files off it onto your PC then you have a chance of copying them over to a good card in order to cure your problem . If it's not a fault with the SD card then at least you have a copy of the files , meaning you can't make things any worse than they already are. Good luck.

Hi,

Unfortunatly if you have deleted everything and do not have any backup then you will not be able to restore your TomTom to working condition.

If you do manage to copy or obtain SD card with files / maps then you will need the origonal product code and activation numbers in order to activate the maps. TomTom home software might restore some of the files needed but you will still need Maps and activation for the TomTom to work.

best regards and Good Luck

1st approach (Quick one!)

1. Soft reset your device
2. make a backup copy of the folder \SD-MMCard\MSMETADATA if exists.
3. delete the folder \SD-MMCard\MSMETADATA.
4. Soft reset your device once again.


2nd approach (Long one!)

If 1st approach did not work, restore the MSMETADATA folder and try the following:

Step Zero: BACKUP
- Make a full backup of your device (including storage cards). If you don't like to do a full backup keep at least a backup of all files and folders we are going to delete as indicated below:

Step One
-In the main device directory delete the file WMPInfo.xml
-Delete the \Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player\ directory and all of
the files in it including the WMDRM folder.
-Delete the \Music folder

Step Two
-Go to your SD card main directory and delete the file WMPInfo.xml
-Delete the folder \SD-MMCard\MSMETADATA
-Delete the folder \SD-MMCard\WMDRM
-Delete the folder \SD-MMCard\Music

Step Three
-Repeat step two for any other storage cards.

Step Four
-Refresh devices in WMP and the storages card should show up in the left tab
and in the sync window you can click "Next Device"

Hope this helps...

SD card problem


The most likely cause for the RED CROSS is that some files are missing or corrupted on the SD card. This can also occur if someone has accidently dragged and dropped files on the SD card. ie. if a folder or file has been accidently dropped into a different folder. For instance you could drag and drop the maps folder into the voices folder. In this case the unit wouldn't load up if you had no maps although the maps would still be on the SD card but would be in the wrong place. We all know that files on media can be damaged or become corrupted so its always worth making a GOOD BACKUP of any sd card so that should this problem arise you can reinstall the backup.
If you have no luck with your SD card , you could try borrowing a card off someone you know and make a copy of it then activate that copy by using the original activation code together with the device code. .... good luck .
