Yeah, the download page has tons of stuff you can get - perhaps that's why there's no printed manual. Can you imagine how many trees would be needed to print all of these?

It's NOT in the manual!

All this discussion about the manual and the information is nowhere in there!

It does not tell you WHERE to put the MP3 files. - not \Garmin\media\ or ANY OTHER location.

I've tried \Garmin\media\music and it does not work!!! If I put the same files on the internal flash and it works fine. I REALLY would like to use the SD Card though!

Have you ever thought it might be your card that's defective or not compatible? If the file location is not normally an issue, and there's no special mention in the manual, maybe it's not usually a complicated thing, and your situation is abnormal for some reason.

Just saying.

MP3 files should go here:

\Garmin\MP3\

You will get better indexing performance if you place your MP3's in multiple sub-folders.

If this does not work, Format your SD Card and try again.

Optimally your SD Card should have the following folders (directories):

\Garmin\GPX
\Garmin\JPG
\Garmin\MP3
\Garmin\POI
\Garmin\userdata

Bluhduh Zumo 660 and 16GB

I've seen some people posting 8gb max capacity of zumo 660, my works just fine with 16GB and also tried a 32GB and had no problems, The only thing is that they have to be converted to MP3 and perhaps volume adjusted with MP3Gain to have them all play equally and not having to adjust the volume every time since getting to the volume control it's a pain.

If you use apple or Windows media player they will not always be MP3

The Micro SD Card should show up as a separate drive on your computer. I named mine something catchy so I can remember what it is when it appears on my Mac desktop. I have dumped music files in the Audible folder, a MP3 folder I made, etc. It indexes the card and find all media files so putting them in a certain folder is not necessary but will keep the file system easier to navigate and update files as you go and make the chance of loading duplicates less...

32gb works well in zumo 660

I had a hard time finding exactly which memory cards would work with my 1 week old zumo 660 too. It wasn't totaly clear to me how big of a card I could get. I read this form and bought a scandisk 32gb card from amazon. It works perfectly.

Zumo 660 Music

Ours is on a 64GB Scan Disk with over 3800 songs and works fine.

Do not listen while we ride, but is a great entertainment center at night.

Regards

maybe too many tunes

I just got a 660LM a few weeks ago. I had an 8GB card in the house which I started with, but went out and spent the $25 to get a 32GB card (man, is memory ever cheap now!). I then loaded about 4000 songs on the disk (about 20GB of data), and the zumo started working very, very slowly - and seemed to get stuck and not work at all much of the time.

So I deleted about 1/2 of them, and now it's working fine.

It'd be nice to be able to have as many songs on there as is space on the card, but looks like there is some sort of indexing process going on when I turn it on. My guess is that the processor can only handle so much data at a time.

When I had too many songs on there I had 2 things happen: 1) The maps simply wouldn't render and navigation wouldn't start for quite a while...if at all, and 2) when the media player did it's thing, I could play whatever playlist I had at the last use, but wouldn't let me browse for quite a while..if at all.

But once I reduced the amount of songs by 1/2 (around 2k songs and 10GB of data), it works great again.

Of course, my entire music collection on my PC is more like 60GB+, but looks like I'll just swap out music now and again. If I played the entire collection from my PC, it would take about 40 days with continuous music playback (still have about 6 full days of tunes on the zumo now....that's an awful lot of hours of music still).

Do you have you MP3 files in sub folders, or just a bunch of MP3s?

Garmin\MP3\Artist\Album\MP3s works well, 16g card; 2g City Nav map, 2g Topo24 Map, about 1000 songs

Pissed Headache!

My brain hurts. I'm not getting anywhere.

I got a SanDisk 64 GB micro sdxc card for use in my Zumo 660. Actually, it's the card that came out of my Android phone when I got rid of it. However, it doesn't mater how I label folders, none of my mp3s are showing up.

1. I made a folder on the sd card called MP3 and put an album folder in there with all the mp3s of that album. "No mp3s found."

2. I made a folder on the sd card called Garmin and within that i made another folder called MP3 and dropped the album folder in that. "No mp3s found."

2. I made just a folder called Garmin and dropped the album itself with the mp3s in it. "No mp3s found."

3. I copied the Audible folder from the Zumo's internal memory to the sd card and then deleted it from the internal memory. Then, dropped mp3s in there. "No mp3s found."

I started to copy my entire Garmin folder from the internal memory to the sd card. I was then going to delete it off the zumo's memory and try to drop an mp3 folder with music in that. I got impatient though. That was going to take over an hour.

I know that if I make an mp3 folder inside the Garmin folder that exists on the Zumo's internal memory, and drop music in there, they show up fine. I want to use the sd card though. What on earth am I doing wrong?

How did you get this to work? It ain't going for me. Card shows up on my computer as F drive with the Zumo plugged into the computer. I'm just not getting it.

I just found this thread and have a question. On my Zumo 660 I have loaded 573 MP3 songs, but when I go to the media player and select play all, it only shows 382 songs. This is with 1 16G card. I have tried the 8G card that I have in another MP3 player with the same 573 songs, but the 660 still only shows 283 songs. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,

You are absolutely sure that all the songs are actual MP3 format, right? Not something like AAC or something else, that has been renamed to the MP3 extension? I had problems somwhat similar to this when using iTunes a while back; turned out some of my file types didn't represent the actual real file type.

Ah, there is a clue. I see that some are wma files. I picked out one that did not show up on my 660 media player and it is indeed a wma. These did play on my SanDisk MP3 player, though. If that is the problem, is there a way to convert the wma's to mp3?

Thanks a lot.
