SD Memory card (how to access from my computer)

 

This may be a stupid question but how do I access the SD memory card in my Nuvi 765t from my computer.

I have some pictures on the card that I would like to transfer to my computer. I plugged in my Nuvi and have the file open but cannot find a file for the card or anything that shows where the pictures are stored.
thanks.

it should

The SD Card should show as another drive. Go to My Computer and look to see what drives are connected. You should see an entry that is the Nuvi and another that is the memory card.

.

Like "Box Car" mentioned above, the card's contents should show as an additional removable drive along with the nuvi. If it does not show, try the card in an external card reader (if you have one) or in another PC that has a built-in card reader. If you cannot see any files on the card using different card readers, it could be that the card is faulty.

Identifying SD Card Drive Letter

As a rule of thumb once you find the Garmin drive, the SD card will be the one with the letter following the Garmin Drive.

Fo example if the Garmin drive shows D:, the SD card will be E:.

If you like, while in Windows Explorer you can rename the SD card to Garmin SD so it is easily identified.

Any jpgs you have on the SD card do not neccissarily have to be in the Garmin\Jpg folder on the SD card.
They merely need to be present in the Garmin folder for the Nuvi to recognize.

To make it even easier to identify the nüvi and the MicroSD card, place an autorun.inf file in the root of both nüvi and MicroSD to properly label them. The one I use for my MicroSD looks like below.

Quote:

[autorun]
icon=\nuvi_drive.ico
label=Garmin nüvi MicroSD

The icon can be whatever you wish as long as it's stored on the device or MicroSD card. The label can say anything you want, within reason.

use a card reader on your PC

You will find the file copying will be faster if you put the SD card into a card reader on your PC.

you have a micro card in your novi and you have a memory card adapter to make it fit your computer slot.

one of the old units which were USB 1.1. All the units manufactured in the past 3 years have been at least USB 2.0.

Nice Tip

I have all my SDs and MicroSDs drives named in properties but this does limit you to 11 characters and no Icon in Explorer. Thanks for the tip, it gives more flexibility with naming the drive which overrides the drive name and the icon is a nice touch.

Thanks
