I am unable to copy the .ov2 and .bmp files to my map file on the pocket pc to download the camera positions( it says the files are write protected or read only). I am using tomtom2 and checkpoint( i tries 2 and 3.2). What is the problem?

Never seen this error before.

Do they already exist on the storage card ? It maybe you started copying, it bombed out and reminence of the files are still there. If you can see them you may want to delete them first.

Failing that, try a soft reset. If that doesn't help, then it maybe because you're using ActiveSync 3.7.x or above, these had problems in copying files to the Pocket PC and you may want to consider downgrading to ActiveSync 3.6

Thank you vry much for your prompt reply. Let me explain exactly what happens. When I try to copy the extracted ov2 and bmp files to the SD/GB maps on the laptop (in the explore option of activesync), I get this message from the file copier/convertor:cannot copy file: maybe write-protected,read only or in use by another application.
Now I used activesync 3.5 and 4.1
I did a soft reset, there are no part files in SD memory and I have uninstalled my firewall. Nothing seems to work. Any suggestions?Thanks again

Can you copy any file to the SD card ? If not, look at the SD card and there's probably a little white slider on it which is a write protect notch. Flick it the other way, you may have accidentally write protected the card.

Thanks again. You were absolutely right. The write protect tab was locked accidently on the SD card, and it never crossed my mind.Thank you very much.

Excellent! I really couldn't think of what else it could be, then a 12th hour though was they have a write protect notch on the newer ones.
