SD Card Satnav Blunder

Post by coolnikhit28 » Sat Sep 07, 2019 12:59 am

Hi all,

So a few months ago, my old laptop managed to corrupt my original Seat SD card ironically whilst I was trying to back it up so that I could then update it. Naturally dejected as it wiped my original OVERALL.NDS file. I have since got a new laptop and inserted the SD card into it and confirming my horror, the card was semi-wiped by my old laptop including the important "Overall" file. So I went ahead and thought, let me just completely format it properly on my new laptop.

After this I thought well what have I got to lost I've lost my OVERALL file anyway...so I downloaded 1310 update. Inserted into my car, and the dreaded "Navigation Database Not Available" error came up.

Is there ANYTHING I can do as a workaround as I don't have my overall.nds file? Of course I guess I could pay Seat and get a new SD card put in and then update it myself, this time with a new laptop that will back it up properly before I start. But I would rather not pay Seat if I could avoid itand my local dealer is a bit of a dud, I have called twice about a new SD card, they've said they'll find out and call me back but to no avail...!

Any means to resurrect, solve things would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Nik

As lea1965 says, Data Recovery is the way forward, but recover the data to another card/drive, not the original. Only once data has been successfully recovered, then the data can be copied back to the original. Don't do anything else with the card until you run data recovery on it and don't forget to do a "safe removal" before ejecting the card after any changes... that's one poss cause of corruption.

Hi both. I have tried recovery a few times with different paid software, to no avail sadly. The SD card is working but just as an SD card, so I can use it for my own storage use if I fancy so it’s not completely broken/corrupt in that sense. It does have the new update in it and when inserted into the vehicle it does say map data present but then says navigation data not available. I presume and put this down to the issue of not having repacked the original OVERALL.NDS file.

So in this scenario now what can I do now that data recovery is basically out the window too? Lol

What version was in your car before you tried for 1310 i.e. the version supplied on the SD card originally

0866 was the original version number I believe and it says V4” on the SD card. On the SD card box it says “6P0.919.866.M”

I hope this helps find a solution. Thanks.

I suspect you need an OVERALL.NDS for that same original version unless they're more tightly locked to the car. I'm sure Bedlam will be back with his thinking soon :)

I think you'll find the OVERALL.NDS is locked to the serial number of the SD card it came on, this is to stop it being copied as another card wouldn't have that serial number.

I don't think so. I bought a Seat card out of Ebay. Copied the latest software from VW and the Overall.NDS from my old card and it works 100%.
