Does the sd card have "Garmin" as a root directory. I also have another directory subordinate to that that is "MP3". No problems. btw. Your Zumo can only access 1000 songs per sd card so ......

Doesn't have anything to do with the sd card. You can put an 8g card in there with 5000 songs on it but the Zumo will only index 1000. I may be wrong but don't think so.

Consider joining THE ZumoForums - I've learned a lot from some very knowledgeable Zumo users over there ..
