Yes, but I then replaced the mini splash screen with a much smaller file to get it back to same size - diffence is 10's of bytes only.
Is there anything else I can do to reduce size other than change my (smallish) splash and icons?

I suspect that it could be that the OS upgrade has made the reading of the backup a little more prone to any inconsistencies in the map disc.
I agree - that was my thinking based on feedback on other forums.

Get hold of an OEM map disc (cd or dvd, they will both work).
I have used the same DVD writer, phillips DVD-R's and UltraISO for all changes for 2 years without any probs until v31. The 2008-01 is the first DVD I've used with the full UK postcode set as a POI resource. This fills the DVD close to the limit and may be causing errors at extremities.

I think I'll order a new OEM 2008-02 whilst the half price offer is still in place and give the MKIV a clean - air con seems to cause lots of dust which get pulled onto the DVD.

Thanks for the advice.
