Navigation on SD card

Post by ellatheelephant »

I recently got my VW Polo and the dealer said that I could download the navigation system from the internet, upload it onto an SD card and use it in my car. I eventually managed to find it, download it and upload it onto the SD but now when I put it into the slot it says 'Error: SD Card'. In order to upload the data onto the card in the first place I had to change the card's format as I have a macbook so I wonder if it's that but I can't change it back without deleting all the data. Also I have no idea how to find out what type of media system I have, sorry. Any help is very much apprechiated.

Load up disk utility on your Mac with the SD card inserted. It needs to be FAT32 format to work

Your Mac has probably formatted it Ito Hfs
