Hi and welcomed to

My name is Nick. I will assist you with your issues.

When connect your Garmin to your computer, do you see the Garmin as an external hard drive?

Do you have Mac or PC?

If PC, is it using Windows XP, Vista or 7?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Yes I can see the drive. I have a PC, windows 7. The biggest problem is the duplicates in Itunes, I would like to transfer the mp3 format and not have all the duplicates. I think they also go into windows media player, I can transfer to the garmin from there. But dont want all these duplicates.

Thanks for your info.

How did convert your files to MP3? Using iTunes or another program?

Do you know where your songs are located?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I used I tunes, but I have deleted all the duplicates, which means I deleted the mp3 files. I believe they are stored in the windows media player. The mp3s are still there. So I have duplicates still in the wmp.


Expert:  Nick H. replied 3 years ago.

If you still have the MP3 files on WMP, open the Garmin and drag your music to Garmin SD Card. That will copy your files to Garmin so you can play on it.

I understand that, but you have to open each song to see which is the MP3. I will figure this out. You have not been helpful.
