This was on an n810, and I was talking about the internal 2Gb card  
with the Map data on it.

I hooked the n810 up via the USB cable to my Linux box, and was able  
to run fsck.vfat on the partition.  I had to run it 4 times to get the  
various errors fixed, but it finally came back with a good bill of  
health.  This took care of my issue without having to format the drive  
and reinstall the map files, and the backups I had taken.

If you are on Windows, you could probably use Knoppix to gain access  
to fsck.vfat.
