sd to cf cards

  joel42 12:16 05 May 2006

I have some data stored on an SD card that I use in a PDA. I'd now like to start using a new pda that uses CF and not SD. Is there any way I can move/convert the data from one card to another?
Any help... in simple language would be greatly appreciated. The data is a UK map for TomTom5

You acould always nuy a simple card reader for a few pounds from a local shop and transfer that way. Word of warning though, is the Tom Tom data compatible with the new device?

drag all the contents out into a folder on the desktop then when the new card is in drag the lot back again, that is how i transfered mine from one tomtom card to another.

I doubt that it will be as simple as that. No problem in copying the data over using a card reader, the main problem will be getting it to work on the new PDA.

The maps are registered with work with one PDA; your original. This is deliberately done to prevent people using the software on more than one device; (possible piracy). A possible answer is to contact TomTom support and explain the position; they may help.

Just thought you would not need to use a card reader.

Connect you old PDA and, using MS ActiveSync,
copy the contents of the SD card to a new folder on your hard disc.

Then connect the new PDA, and again using MS ActiveSync, copy the contents of the folder onto the CF card.

I still think that, without help from TomTom, it is questionable if it will work in the new PDA.

Nevertheless, its worth trying.

If you don`t have MS ActiveSync it can be downloaded free here:
