If someone needs Firmware update for NTG 2.5 to version 09/29 - latest I can help you out (ofc. for free)
-PS: If you have old firmware and maps, older maps wont work with new firmware.
I can provide you Europe maps that will work ( but you will have to take the ntg 2.5 unit out of the car and you need an IDE to usb connector.
Hello everyone on the forum and hope everyone is doing well.
I have been bothered for a few days, by wanting to connect the hard drive of the NTG2.5, I don't know what happened with my PC, but by reconnecting it to the NTG2.5, the Music Register no longer displays the music and also other bugs, there were 7 Partitions named TFAT and a last one apparently unrecognized in Windows which appears to be a partition with a filesystem that Windows cannot handle, using testdisk it finds me in HPFS- NTFS, even by repairing the partition structure, the other 6 FAT32 partitions are of different size, the one which contains the maps is 27GB, the other 1.99GB, the one which contains the Music Register files is 3.99GB and Contains a Folder Music with renamed file names, I think the music file information database has been overwritten or other and must be registered in the last partition that Windows cannot manage or only manage by NTG2.5 (encrypted format? )
I would like to test a NTG2.5 HDD clone if available.
You can help me clone my disk or recreate the partitions.
It also seems to me the clone image requires a minimum Firmware of 09.29 and that you need the CD Iso A1718274159 telematic DISC01 / 2010 to update it in the Engineer Mode menu (Call-End + * + 6) and SW Update.
The firmware update procedure: need Firmware iso to burn it and update
1) Download and unzip attached file, there should be an image file: A1718274559.ISO
2) Burn this ISO file to a CD or DVD empty DISC (I use CD), use minimum speed.
3) Eject all the CD or DVD in your NTG2.5
4) Insert this DISC that you just burned into NTG2.5
5) Enter to engineering menu
6) Choose SW update
Then I could clone the 1: 1 disk image with HDClone Software apparently or Acronis True Image (Not sure it makes an identical copy Cluster by Cluster and other information)
Not having Linux at the moment, and in case I install Ubuntu on a PC to perform Cloning.
I would like someone to help me, even if I am already well advanced in my research, it would also allow me to participate in this forum and to put in my turn the Complete Tutorial and the Clone images that I would put on MEGA or other so that you too can solve this operation yourself in case one day the hard disk becomes defective.
