    Are you saying that you do not know where on your computer to put the photos from your G1 or are you saying that you do not know where to find the photos that are on your G1? The G1 keeps it's photos in the \dcim folder.

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.

You said that your phone comes up as the "F:" drive.  Then that means that the path to your phone's photos would be "F:\dcim" without the quotes.

Hi, just bought a htc phone and want to put the pic's i've taken with my phone on my computer. How do i do that?


Hi dforte1145,
  • Connect your G1 to your computer via USB
  • Pull down the notification menu and select "USB connected: Select to copy files to/from your computer."
  • "Turn on USB storage"
  • Now open your phone in a folder on your computer
  • You will see a folder that says "DCIM" (This is where your pictures are stored)
  • Open DCIM and view the pictures in the folder "Camera"
  • Drag the photos you want to copy into the "Camera" folder
  • Safely remove your G1 from your computer (Windows: "Safely remove hardware" OSX: Drag G1 icon into the trash bin Linux: Unmount)
Now open the "Gallery" application on your phone all all of your photos should be there!

Add songs from internet


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.

Downloading photos from G1 phone to laptop


At the top of your phone display you will see a USB icon. Click on the top of the screen and mount the memory card. Your computer will recognize your memory card as a disk drive.

Click on my computer and select the letter for the memory card. Look for the photo folder.

T-Mobile is doing an over the air upgrade to fix some syncing problems this week.

Contact 611 from your cell phone and select G1 support for more information.

Can not down load my own music


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.
