TomTom shows red cross when switching on... but sd card is fine

I've googled the problem but no-one seems to have quite the same symptoms I do.

I bought my TomTom several years ago (so it's way out of warranty), and it's always worked beautifully.  The other day, though, I pulled it out and switched it on to see the red cross and flying sd card error.

So I tried to do some troubleshooting, but nothing seems to work:

1) If I remove the sd card completely, ti shows a different error.  So it does know there's a card inserted, it just can't read it

2) If I insert the sd card directly in my pc, I can access files on it without a problem.

3) If I insert the card in the gps unit, and connect that to my pc via usb cable, it connects and charges quite happily

4) If I start TomTomHome, and connect my gps with the card inserted, everything works just fine - I can backup and restore, I can operate the unit through the pc, and I can update the unit (and it did find two updates, and installed them successfully)  But, once I unplug it from the pc and switch it on, I get the red cross again.

Any ideas?  I doubt I have an old map backup :(
