when you hook the cable up your computer will auto detect it and pop up a menu asking you what you would like to do. you will then say copy files and direct the location they go to. If you do not get this popup look inside your my computer icon and it should give you a drive letter with name of your phone. select that and drag photos over
connect usb cord to lap top (usb cord comes with the g1) it should say usb connected at the very top slide down tap where is "select to copy files to/from your computer" it should ask mount or dont mount tap mount and it is a cake walk from there
Do you mean photo albums? To do this I would just attach the phone to your laptop or computer using the USB cable, mount the SD card by clicking mount when the phone notifies you, and then create the albums as files on the SD card. Then you can copy and paste any pictures into any album you want, and afterwards unplug the phone. I don't think there's any way to create photo albums actually using the phone though.
I had the same issue, however what I DID notice up on top was a USB Connected - the USB icon. I pulled that notification up and it asked me to connect. The exacts are:
1. Plug the USB cable into the computer 2. Plug the USB cable into the phone 3. The notification up top corner left will say "USB Connected" with a USB notification icon - BRIEFLY. The text "USB Connected" will quickly disappear, but the icon is still in the left corner. 4. Pull down the notification andyou'll see "USB Connected - Select to copy files to/from your computer" - Select that notification 5. Notification "USB Connected - You have connected your phone to your computer via USB. Select "Mount" if you want to copy files between your computer and your phone's SD Card." - Select the option "Mount". 6. The "Removable Disk" notification should pop up asking you what you want to do. I select "Open folder to view files".
There is a music folder in there, or whatever else you'd like.
This is how I did it. I am using Windows Vista so it maybe different for other OSs.
Find and select the picture(s) on your pc, copy them using CTRL-c.
Plugin your g1, and if you have installed the drivers, you need to goto your g1 and hold the USB icon on the top of the screen for a couple seconds. It should expand downwards, then pull it down. open the USB connected by toucing it. Touch the "Mount" button on the screen.
Autoplay dialog box should open on your pc, select "open folder to view files". open "dcim" folder. Paste the pictures in that folder.
NOTE: You will not be able to access the sdcard from the g1 until you unplug the USB after you're done.
Once all the pictures are uploaded into the sdcard, goto "My Computer" on your pc, rightclick the sdcard drive(it should be named like "Removable Drive" or something, and select "eject".
Now remove the USB cable, Select "Pictures" icon in you apps, if needed select "dcim" folder, and touch the pictures.
Siimilar can be done with music, just changing the instruction to "My Music" on your pc and also opening "Music" icon on your g1.
I was trying to transfer some ringtones from old phone to G1 and facing the same problem.
And now somewhere from net I found the solution to my problem.
Although it could not be done by bluetooth, but my problem is solved now.
You can also try it. It may help you out.
> Transfer ringtones/music/photos from your phone to Desktop
> Connect G1 to Desktop by USB cable
> On the top of G1 screen it will show the icon of USB (connected)
> Scroll down from the icon and select 'copy files from computer'
> Select 'Mount'
> On desktop a massage will appear, click 'open folder & show files'.
> Copy & Paste files from computer to G1. Now your files are in G1
> If you want to set any song as ringtone press & hold that song, a menu will appear and you can select 'set as ringtone'
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.
