Garmin Oregon 550 Database Error

Recommended Posts

I have a problem with my handheld, Garmin Oregon 550.

I can't mark waypoint,it said "Database Error".

Then I try to connect it to the computer, it shown the space is full. But when I open it, there is no data exist.

 

Is there anybody know how to fix it?

 

I attach some picture to describe my problem.

Can you show a screenshot of the Garmin directory on your device (list mode, shows file sizes, etc.)?

 

Have you had it connected to a Mac? If yes, need to empty the trash. (Deleted files are kept in a hidden folder)

The Garmin unit shouldn't appear as a removable disk. It should appear as a drive.

Have you accidentally formatted the Garmin?

Here is what I would try ... on the Windows Properties window, click on the Tools tab and run the Error Checking dialog. You could run it the first time by unchecking the Repair option. Then if it turns up some errors, you can decide if you want to run it again and attempt the repair.

Oops, I think you're correct :(

You're right, it is the SD card slot that shows as a removable disk. Also, now that I look at it again, the Oregon 550 has 4 GB internal storage with about 3.6 GB usable, not 1GB as shown in the OP's image.

 

@apradhana ... If your Oregon has a SD card installed, it may be corrupt. Try booting the device up without the card.
