If reemoving and reinserting the card doesnt help, youll need to have it reformatted....

do this by connecting your phone to the pc and opening your MY COMPUTER icon > right click REMOVABLE STORAGE/DISK > select FORMAT

**if your computer says something like 'no disk available' try disconnecting the device and select MENU > SETTINGS > SD CARD AND PHONE STORAGE > make sure the check bos for 'USE FOR USB STORAGE' is checked****

after that, set the 'file systems' as FAT32 > select START > read the warning > press OK > once complete, disconnect from the pc and try again!

IF that doesnt work, try to test the sd card in another phone to see if the sd card itself is the problem. if you still have the issue but the sd card works, go ahead and reset the phone.

MENU > SETTINGS > SD CARD AND PHONE STORAGE > FACTORY DATA RESET > RESET PHONE > ERASE EVERYTHING

I have a g1 and it downgraded to 1.0 how can I upgrade it without a manual update


How to Update G1 Phone Firmware RC33

1. Download RC33 update from Google here.

2. Rename the download file from signed-PLAT-RC33-from-RC30.f06aa9b3.zip to update.zip, and place it at the root i.e the very top directory of your Micro SD card. (If you added the file to your microSD card by connecting the handset to your computer via USB [rather than using a dedicated microSD card reader], make sure to unmount it and disconnect the USB cable now.

3. Turn off your G1 Make sure it's completely powered off. Now again turn it on by holding the Home+End keys until you see T-Mobile G1 logo.

4. From the icon screen, open the keyboard and hit Alt+L.

5. Press Alt+S to begin the update. Remember, the update needs to be in the root of the Micro SD card and needs to be named update.zip.

6. Once it finishes, follow the onscreen instructions and press Home+Back to finish.

7. G1 Phone will reboot a few times to flash different parts of the firmware.

If all went well, you should now be running the latest update, RC33. Enjoy your new, shiny RC33 update, complete with Google Latitude!

To make sure all your hard work wasn't for nothing, hit Menu > Settings > About Phone > scroll to Build Number. You should see RC33 in there somewhere.

Hi, my g1 has problem to read the sd card, when i try to use the camera, the phone says it does´nt have, and windows XP do recognize the phone


Need a little clarity on what your saying XP does recognize the SD card when you mount the phone to the computer, or it doesn't?

Well here is what you can try. and just remember ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS do this before removing your SD card from your phone.

Settings>SD card & phone storage>Unmount SD card

Now if your phone has "Unmount SD card" blacked out then don't worry about just go ahead and remove the SD card.

Take the card and put it in a card reader and put it in your computer. Go to: Start>My computer> (and the drive corresponding to the SD card.) and then try to open it. If a window comes up saying something like drive E: is not formatted, Format now? and then Ok or cancel well if this comes up it could be one of three reasons; the SD card is not properly formatted, SD card is damaged, or the SD card reader is not working properly. So before trying to format the SD card try another card reader or try it on a different computer. If that doesn't work try to format the SD card. If formatting the SD card doesn't work, you may need to buy another one. If you do decide to get another one check Amazon.com they have good prices for the SD cards however if you prefer local buying best place to go (that I've found) is Radio Shack. They always have sales on the MicroSD cards. One other thing. For some reason. SanDisk Micro Sd cards seem to work the best for the G1. The transend cards are utter **** and worthless. Avoid buying them anytime your in the market for a new SD card or USB flash drive.

Keeps saying sd card removed when its clearly in!!


i recently bought a used g1 from a friend and tried to insert an sd card but it said the same thing sd card removed the card is fine then i did some researching and found out that the q1 has a sensor in the sd card cover which if it is opened it will say that message now my problem is that the cover is broken so i am currently working on a solution to that but if it is not broken then just try taking the sd card out turn off the phone and insert the sd card and properly close the cover make sure it is not opened even the slightest then turn your phone bak on and it should work unless the actual sd card reader is damaged or the sd card itself. hope this information was helpfull

I have a g1 and I don't kno how to put pictures or applications on my sd card. Does it do it by itself or do I have to download something and how do I do that?


To put pictures on your SD card all you need to do is attach the G1 to your computer, mount the SD card when the notification comes up on your phone, and then copy and paste any pictures you want onto it. However, you can't save applications on the SD card, they are saved in the phone memory when you download them from the Android Market.

Sd card


I had the same problem. so what i did is i created a back up on my computer and format it the sd card. and it had a bad file in it that was causing the problem. once i format it the card it was ready to be used again. just make sure you look for that corrupt file so you don't put it again to the already clean card. also i removed the sd card from the g1 and plugged it straigt to the computer. I hope this can help you like it helped me.

See if that works.
