Hello, I am new to all this. I am unable to upload a poi I downloaded to my iMac. After I downloaded the poi I used Garmin POI Loader to create a poi.gpi file. I then burned it to a rw-dvd but kept getting "bad disc." I tries several more discs but got the same answer. Anybody know what I am doing wrong? Thanks in advance.
I need to correct my first post. I am unable to upload a poi from my iMac, via burning a disc, to my in-dash Kenwood DNX5140. It uses Garmin software. Any help would be deeply appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Don't have a clue as to why you can't burn to disc; re-writable DVD's have a limited number of writes -- have you tried a regular one-time-write DVD? But, what will you do once you have it on DVD? Does the in-dash GPS have the ability to see a DVD?
BTW, you should have been able to edit your original post without creating a second post -- until somebody replies to the original.
No, I haven't tried a single burn CD/DVD. I will try that next. What I did was convert the poi cvs to poi.gpi via Garmin POI loader. I then copied the file to the desk top and burned the disk from there. When I tried to load it onto the GPS it kept giving me a "bad disc" response. My DNX5140 does have DVD capability. Do you have any idea what I am doing wrong? Do I need a Garminn folder on the disc? I'm totally lost, but I will try the one-time-write disc. Thanks in advance.
What software are you using to burn the DVD? Are you making the disk PC readable? I'm not sure what you want to do is possible, from a contractual rather than technical basis, but I'm sure you'll need to produce a PC disk to have a chance.
Not all DVD players will read re-writable meda; let's hope it is nothing more than that. If the one-time-write media is not recognized, I'd try the following:
1.) See if you can read the disc on the iMac.
2.) If so, ask a neighbor/friend if they can see the file on their Windows PC.
If it is seen by the iMac but not by the PC, it would point to a formatting issue.
Edit: I see while I was organizing my thoughts, Bill was typing a similar thought.
