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.

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.
If you are trying to play the file then it will be unmounted as it needs to disconnect from the pc to do that you could try copying them in batches if that doesnt work it may be a USB driver fault in which case i would reccomend reinstalling the G1 driver.
Put it in your PC and format it such that it allows for more items - music - to be added to or removed from the memory card whenever you waht to do that. That way, it will allow you to add and remove music whenever you want to do that, and it will not lock down the memory card. I have done the same thing with my 32 GB Flash Drive, and it works like a charm.
1. Make sure the microSD card is inserted in the phone.
2. Plug the phone into the USB slot on your computer using the G1 USB cable.
3. Watch the notification bar at the top of the G1 main screen. After
the computer connects on the USB port, you will see a small USB icon
appear on the notification bar.
4. Drag the notification bar down and select the USB connection
notification. A popup will appear asking you if you want to mount the
microSD card on the computer. Select "mount." After a second, the PC
should detect the card.
5. You can now copy files to and from the card like any other USB storage device.
When you're finished, open the Music app, and select the Songs icon and
you should see all your music files listed. The phone will read the
files and sort them by album name and artist name as well.
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.
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.
