Sat Nav SD Card not recognised - Can it be recovered?
« on: April 11, 2019, 10:25:24 PM »
Hi,

Earlier this week I used the Mazda Toolbox application successfully (or so I thought) to update the Sat Nav SD Card from my 18 plate Mazda 3.  Before removing the SD Card from my PC I even ensured that the PC had given the safe to remove message.

Next day the car wouldn't recognise it as a valid Mazda SD card, and now the Mazda Toolbox application on the PC won't recognise it as a valid Mazda SD card. 

If I use Windows File Explorer I can browse into the SD Card.  This shows just one folder with no files in it.  Although the space used indication for the card shows that a lot of the space is used and so I presume that files are there but just not visible to Windows Explorer.

I've booked my car in to a dealer to have the issue looked at, but just wondered if there was a simple fix for this to save time.

In the past I had successfully updated the same SD card in the same PC and so I didn't expect to run into a problem. 

This isn't the 8GB problem that other people have run into with older SD cards, the card's size is 16GB.  The card is not set to 'locked'.

Thanks.

Not experienced this, but it is a little worrying.  Please let us know what Mazda says.
