He guys,

 

Yesterday I had a problem with my tomtom, it gave a message that something was wrong. So I followed the instructions of tomtom. They said I need to format it, so I did. But on the volume name ( maybe the wrong translation ) above fast format. I didn't change the word to TOMTOM. And after that my SD card won't connect to my tomtomsoftware.

 

Someone knows what to do?

 

Tanks for your help..

Reformat the drive but don't use quickformat. If a Go model, then the card should be a sdhc card, not a sd card.

    Had the same problem.

     

    Erased the partition on the SD card, after that TomTom accepted the SD card for formatting.

     

    Usefull hint:   Use f.e.  MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition  from http://www.partitionwizard.com/

     

    And no I´m not from this firm.  But it´s a nice small tool to erase partitions.  But be carefull.

    I have an XXL 550 and cannot get it to format properly.  Let it run for day anbd a half and still bombed.  What are the proper parameters for formatting this device?

    You can try this with GParted-Live

    Can GParted-Live not format your Disk/Flash, than you have a serious problem.
