Re: G1 - how to get photos from my pc to my g1 phone?
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.

sure. just connect your usb wire the big end to your computer the small end to the phone. then a moment later a notification at the top of your screen appears saying usb connected. then drag that notification menu down and tap the usb connected notification to bring up an option to mount or not mount. choose mount. now on your computer open my computer where you see c drive and d drive. look for removable disk. then click on it and you'll see some folders open the audio or music folder and leave it open. open my computer again this time look for the folder where you keep your music. now when you get there drag music files from you music folder to your g1 audio. it will copy it to your g1 and once you are done unmount your g1 and bring up your music and your new files shoul be in there.
If you mean by downloading straight from the internet from your phone, there is an application called Amazon MP3 that allows you to purchase songs for your G1 and add them to your memory card. You have to be connected to WiFi to be able to do this though. If you want to connect it to your PC to get songs you downloaded from the internet you need the USB cable that came with the phone and connect it to your PC. On the G1 a notification will appear that says USB connected. Just open your notifications, tap on USB connected and select mount. Then your PC will detect it and allow you to view the files on the memory card. Then just copy and paste to your memory card folder.
plug your G1 to your PC via a USB cable that came with it .., once you plug it in you'll get a notification entitled USB connected .. select it and then choose mount ... once thats done open your My computer icon , you'll see an exrta drive that wasn't there be4 somethig like K or M .. open that and you'll see all the content of your SD card .. copy and past everything to a folder anywhere in your computer ... then all you gotta do is replace the SD card , repeat the same proccess but then time copy everything back to your new SD card .
ok people i have solved the problem with the g1 not recognizing being hooked up to the computer. the usb cords that are sent with the g1 are very crappy. use another usb mini to connect to your computer. theres no installation required just hook it up and select mount and open up my computer and go to removable disk to access you files.
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.
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.
