I'll answer my own question. I found audio to audio converter where I can convert wma to mp3. Slow process doing them one at a time, but it works.

Thanks for the help.

1. I made a folder on the sd card called MP3 and put an album folder in there with all the mp3s of that album. "No mp3s found."

2. I made a folder on the sd card called Garmin and within that i made another folder called MP3 and dropped the album folder in that. "No mp3s found."

2. I made just a folder called Garmin and dropped the album itself with the mp3s in it. "No mp3s found."

3. I copied the Audible folder from the Zumo's internal memory to the sd card and then deleted it from the internal memory. Then, dropped mp3s in there. "No mp3s found."

I started to copy my entire Garmin folder from the internal memory to the sd card. I was then going to delete it off the zumo's memory and try to drop an mp3 folder with music in that. I got impatient though. That was going to take over an hour.

I know that if I make an mp3 folder inside the Garmin folder that exists on the Zumo's internal memory, and drop music in there, they show up fine. I want to use the sd card though. What on earth am I doing wrong?

How did you get this to work? It ain't going for me. Card shows up on my computer as F drive with the Zumo plugged into the computer. I'm just not getting it.

I am having this same problem. I didn't mess around with naming folders, just loaded the music straight to the 64gb SD card and put it in the zumo - no dice.

Took everything off. Took just one music file that I was sure was mp3, loaded to the card whilst inside the Z660 - no dice.

Cleared the SD card, loaded same file on Z660 internal memory- played fine. Loaded a few files in their original folders on my computer to the Z660 internal mem - played fine.

Cleared Z660 Interal mem and loaded those same songs on the SD card - no dice.

Maybe a dumb question, but is the card formatted exFat or Fat32 ? I just went thru installing a 64gb card in my Monterra and had to download a format program to format the card to Fat32 since the Monterra would not recognize exFat.

I use a 32 gig micros SD card on my 660, its pretty much problem free. Though every now and then it starts cutting out in songs and I have to restart.

When I was researching this, I found that you needed to get a certain class of micro sd card, its a speed thing I guess. I think mine is class 10. If memory serves me, the lower class means the card is slower, so you if you are getting a higher capacity sd card, get the highest class you can afford.

Monte, I spent hours trying to figure out why my SanDisk would not work and sure enough you nailed it. I had to download a program because Windows 7 wouldn't give me the option to reformat the SanDisk to Fat32. Here is what I pulled from another site to reformat it:

Place the card in your PC's card reader and determine the drive designation (i.e., G:\, H:\, etc.)

2. Download the fat32format utility in GUI version from here: Click on the picture to retrieve the file.

3. Launch the guiformat.exe.

4. Choose the drive that corresponds to your SD card.

5. Choose the size of the SD Card you are formatting.

5. Check the Quick Format box.

6. Press Start.

And voila !!!

2000 mp3 file limit

I was searching for discussion on suffle and came across this thread. I'm a year late but ...

I thought I saw there was a limit of 2000 music files supported.
Also, multiple sub-folders were suggested to speed up the (indexing) process at boot. So loading songs by album or artist would be one solution.
