When i go to take a picture. my phone keeps saying there is no sd card inserted. I keep unmounting and taking it out but does not solve problem. all it says is please insert sd card before using camera. Can anyone help me?

    In addition to refusing to take a picture, this problem also makes pictures already on the SD card appear to be "broken", in the camera app.   However, if you click on a "broken" icon, the photo appears correctly.


    If I reboot (i.e., turn off and then on) the phone or if I I attach the phone to a computer and access the card, then I can take one photo with the camera app before the problem reappears.

I had the same problem ever since I bought the phone and finally found the fix for this problem.
Even HTC and T-mobile could not figure out this easy fix.
I assume everybody with the G1 bought a bigger SD card or at one point or another formated their disc. The problem is that you need to make sure that the format is done in FAT32.
I just did this and the camera is finally working for me.
I hope this will help everybody.

I  had a similar problem, I fixed mine by formatting the SD Card in my computer, installing it into my G1, then restarting. You miss out on whatever was on the SD Card from Google, but at least you get to use the camera.

Hope this helps, Eric
P.S. I've called tech support to see if I can re-download whatever was on my SD Card to begin with, and as of yet there is nowhere they could direct me to, to download whichever files were stored there.

My Kyocera Rise has LOTS of problems! The one I want to ask is why do I keep getting a random message saying, "SD card has been unexpectedly removed"?


There are several possible reasons for this. The Kyocera Rise requires an SD card to be unmounted through the memory option in the settings. If you remove the SD without unmounting, you will receive the error message. The Rise also has several software issues that sometimes cause your SD to stop being read, even while still inserted. If you receive this error message without removing your SD card, it is recommended that you take your phone to a company certified Sprint store to have it checked out.

Hi, my g1 has problem to read the sd card, when i try to use the camera, the phone says it does´nt have, and windows XP do recognize the phone


Need a little clarity on what your saying XP does recognize the SD card when you mount the phone to the computer, or it doesn't?

Well here is what you can try. and just remember ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS do this before removing your SD card from your phone.

Settings>SD card & phone storage>Unmount SD card

Now if your phone has "Unmount SD card" blacked out then don't worry about just go ahead and remove the SD card.

Take the card and put it in a card reader and put it in your computer. Go to: Start>My computer> (and the drive corresponding to the SD card.) and then try to open it. If a window comes up saying something like drive E: is not formatted, Format now? and then Ok or cancel well if this comes up it could be one of three reasons; the SD card is not properly formatted, SD card is damaged, or the SD card reader is not working properly. So before trying to format the SD card try another card reader or try it on a different computer. If that doesn't work try to format the SD card. If formatting the SD card doesn't work, you may need to buy another one. If you do decide to get another one check Amazon.com they have good prices for the SD cards however if you prefer local buying best place to go (that I've found) is Radio Shack. They always have sales on the MicroSD cards. One other thing. For some reason. SanDisk Micro Sd cards seem to work the best for the G1. The transend cards are utter **** and worthless. Avoid buying them anytime your in the market for a new SD card or USB flash drive.

Keeps saying sd card removed when its clearly in!!


i recently bought a used g1 from a friend and tried to insert an sd card but it said the same thing sd card removed the card is fine then i did some researching and found out that the q1 has a sensor in the sd card cover which if it is opened it will say that message now my problem is that the cover is broken so i am currently working on a solution to that but if it is not broken then just try taking the sd card out turn off the phone and insert the sd card and properly close the cover make sure it is not opened even the slightest then turn your phone bak on and it should work unless the actual sd card reader is damaged or the sd card itself. hope this information was helpfull

My pictures are not showing up


I have noticed that my SD card occasionally unmounts itself from the G1. You can go into setting to be sure that your SD card is reading. If not, simply remove the card and reinsert. Afterward, check in your picture folder, they should appear.

Camera will not read SD card


1.) Mount your camera
2.) Open your dcim folder in your camera
3.) In whatever file browser you're using (Explorer, Finder, Nautilus, etc) enable show hidden files.
4.) Remove .thumbnails folder
5.) Be sure to empty trash

See if that works.
