I have a TOMTOM 520 with a hard drive which is not being recognised by either TT Home and will not boot when switched on. I have a SD Card with the main files on but the device is not recognising any maps. My previous UK ROI map was on the hard drive and not backed up can anyone help me get my original map back. TTHome recognises the device with SD card in but not without. I just need the UK maps and nothing help
Many thanks in advance

Firstly apologies to hijack a thread but I'm a newbie and I am totally stuck and confused.
I thought I was very computer literate until I tried to update my TomTom!
I have searched high and low and tried a number of fixes including FastActivate (28th December) only to screw up my old but previously working perfect TomTom.
Any help or direction would be really appreciated.
I have a TomTom One (v2) and was running map 6.75 Western and Central Europe.
I copied the SD card to my hard drive before I started hoping that I could use this to rescue myself if all went wrong.
I tried following tutorial and running FastActivate but get an error 'Incomplete map central_and_eastern_europe-100207.meta => .dct ERROR
The map I tried to install is v940.5993
When I tried my TomTom it said there were no maps to select.
I then wiped my SD card and loaded the backup I made earlier. Now I cannot use my TomTom as the map is not activated :-(
I'm stuck and not sure what to do next.
To be honest I don't even know where to find the NavCore version, how to patch it let alone do anything else.
Once again apologies to hijack an old thread, any help will be appreciated.
A good place to start would be the TUTORIAL: Clean Install - How to install the latest map and navcore from scratch! by lemonfish
