    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.

In pictures format where does the sd card go for the tmobile htc G1 phone


Hi Elizabeth617,
Here's how you access the pictures from your SD card:
  • 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

My sd card is saying blank and unsupported


Is your computer able to read the card with an SD adapter? If so, back up any information on it to the computer. Put card back in phone and go to settings->storage->unmount SD card->then format SD card. Allowing the phone to format the card usually has better results than formatting it in Windows because it's going to use the correct file system type.

Hope this helps

My phone keeps saying that sd card has been removed. sd card wont stay in place!!!


THIS WILL MAKE YOU LOOSE ALL FILES!!!
(even password)
Take the memorycard out of the phone and,
put it in a computer.Use filesystem FAT-32
to reformat your memorycard.
Now the card will work again!
No password, No files will be left after a
complete reformat
This is your solution! Please vote!

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.

I have a g1 and I don't kno how to put pictures or applications on my sd card. Does it do it by itself or do I have to download something and how do I do that?


To put pictures on your SD card all you need to do is attach the G1 to your computer, mount the SD card when the notification comes up on your phone, and then copy and paste any pictures you want onto it. However, you can't save applications on the SD card, they are saved in the phone memory when you download them from the Android Market.

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.
