Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver
I just bought a Tomtom go 720. all the other features are o k except that it doesn't allow me to play my mp3 songs from the sd card which I have inserted. I tries several sd cards available but still would not show. I thought it had a defective sd card reader so I went to exchange it for another unit same model - tomtom go 720. But I still can't see my sd card as the mp3 source. It just keeps on showing me this ( When I press the following icons) Music & Media/Tmtom Jukebox/Playlist/Mp3 and only showing me the 3 list of mp3 songs aldready loaded in the device.. How do I get the mp3 songs to play from the sd card??? HELP!!!
If you want to play mp3 songs from sd card then create mp3 folder and place all the songs in side that folder. Now when you go to Juke box menu it will scan all the songs and you will be able to play them the way you want..

Delete everything on your card. Insert it into your Tomtom and put the Tomtom into the dock.
Select Connect to computer
You will get 2 options under select device. (internal Memory or Memory Card)
Select Memory Card
If it comes up with load or select updates click "back"
Click "add maps, traffic, voices etc"
Click "more" until you see the music option.
You will now see a window open for the memory card.
Tomtom automatically creates a mp3 folder
Drag mp3's you want into this and off you go.
If you are using wingows Vista you can also try this. (haven't tried it on XP)
Before you connect Tomtom to dock click "START" button
Connect Tomtom and turn on
You will see 2 more devices pop up in your removable storage pane.
"Internal" and " Removable disk" the removable disk is the one you add the mp3's to.
NOTE: I say open computer before connecting so you can see what "drive letters are added", because if you have more than one you may not know which is the SD card.
I have not tried creating mp3 file on the sd card this way I did it as I described at the begining using Tomtom home. (But it may work that way.

Please format the sd card on fat32 then make a folder Mp3. then copy the song inside the folder. thats it. my one is working like that.

Just had the same problem and guessed how to do it - start the TomTom without the SD Card in, go to the jukebox THEN insert the card - it finds the card and scans for the music files and shows them to you. BTW, you may also want to delete the 3 free tunes off the TomTom - they are hidden files in the TomTom's MP3 folder

You can either format the scan disk orplace the scan disk in your computer.When your option screen comes up click on view files.Click on your music folder.Then from limewire or whatever source of music you are using............drag the song into the folder.close the screen out and take the sd card out and try it in your tomtom

I had similar problem and fix as suggested in this forum. Thank You!
1. Delete the MP3 from default samples in the internal drive.
2. Connect PC and Home using TomTom720. Make to select SD card. TomTom will make the mp3 folder. This new mp3 folder is the folder you need to all your mp3 songs into.
I was hoping to divide my authors with names but I still have not figure out if this is viable with TomTom720 yet.

These solutions do not work for me on tomtom 720. Hit jukebox, tomtom starts trying to add the songs on the sd card. Freezes halfway through, then shuts down. The songs are in a folder named mp3. Nothing else is on the disk. Doesn't matter how big the card is - have a 1 gig and 2 gig, same result. It will only play songs from the internal mp3 folder and only if the sd card is removed. Tried FAT and FAT 32 format, no difference. What's your secret?

The above solutions will work.
just wanted to add this: I inserted a 16 GB Sandisk SDHC card in my tt Go 720 and it works perfect! I have already 14 GB of music on it and it's still going great....admitted, it takes some time to read everything when you start but thats no problem

Move the songs into a folder called Mp3.

Make sure your putting mp3's on the card. I thought it wasn't working until I realized I was copying m4a's.. i guess it doesn't read those.
