When you plug the phone into your pc using the USB cable an alert appears at the top of your phone notifying you of the USB connection. Slide the alert open and click on the "USB connected Select to copy files to/from your computer" alert. It gives you the option to mount the drive. Click on "Mount" - once you mount the drive. Open your file browser on your PC and the phone should be mounted as a flash drive. Click on the drive, you should be able to see all of the folders on your SD card including the folder containing your music.

T-Mobile is issuing an over the air upgrade for all G1 phones to correct a software problem not allowing music files to sync properly using Windows Media player.
The best solution for now is to remove the memory card from the phone. Install it into a SD card adaptor and insert it into a card reader. Windows Media will sync playlists to your memory card properly using this procedure.
Well, after you press mount the SD card should show up on your computer as a drive. If you get confused about which drive it is, open 'my computer' or just 'computer' on vista, and then attach your phone. The drive which appears will be the SD card. Then you can copy and paste any files such as music and pictures into that drive.
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.
I have a Windows Vista Computer and this is how it worked for me.......
This is fairly easy. Plug your G1 into a computer thru the USB cable provided. Shortly a window will appear on your screen showing a mobile device storage unit has been attached. That window is the G1's memory card. You should OPEN the file called music then open a new explorer window to your music directory. Simply Drag and Drop from your music directory to the G1's music window.
(1) Plub usb cable into G1 and computer. You should get a usb icon in the notification area of the G1; (2) Pull down the notification with your finger; (3) Select "Usb Connected" message; (4) Select "Mount" ; (4) On your computer, right click "Start", then click "Explore"; (5) Select the song(s) from where you keep your music, and select "copy"; (6) Go back to the left folders pane and click on the drive labelled "Removable Disk"; (7) Open the Music Folder; (8) then paste the songs there.
There are other ways to get from the computer to the G1, but this is the one I use. Hope that helps.
Step 1: Plug in your USB cable to your G1 T-mobile phone as well as the computer. Step 2: On your G1 T-mobile phone you will see a small icon at the top of the screen that symbols the USB. Step 3: Pull down the notification window down and click on USB Connection. Step 4: Automatically on your laptop computer or just computer a window will pop up giving you the option of importing pictures and copying them or just viewing them.
These steps are the correct steps.....T-mobile G1 technical support has not yet modify these steps or include them on the T-mobile G1 manual.
