Laptop or phone don't recognize connection

Hi, I just got my G1 yesterday and I'm trying to load music and pictures from my laptop to my phone but neither one recognizes when I plug in the usb cable. The phone never says that its connected and my laptop doesn't show anything on My Computer about any new device being plugged in. Any ideas? I would appreciate it. Thank you

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.

Hope that assists.

Trying to tranfer music files from my laptop to phone i have data cable and sd card install if you could give step by step instructions would be great


There are two option to do this:

1. Remove the sd card from the phone and put it in an USB card reader and connect it to the computer through the USB port . Now it will recognized by your computer as an folder and you can just copy the songs from your laptop to that folder.

2. If you have the PC suite for your phone installed in your laptop you can connect the phone through the USB to the computer with the Sd card in it and the PC suite will recognize the phone. There you can transfer the music from laptop to the SD card.

I am trying to download pictures from my galaxy s fascinate phone and my computer is asking for a disc to be inserted to set it up. A disc did not come with the phone.


Most cell phones today have a few ways of getting pictures, music, videos to your PC/Laptop.

1. Via USB cable - This method usually requires drivers from a CD that came with your phone or can be downloaded from the manufacture's website in order for your PC to recognize your phone when you connect.

2. Via mini SD card - Most phones now have a mini SD slot where you can add more memory to the phone for pictures, music, videos, etc. Usually found attached on the side when you take the battery cover off. It will be a small black chip about the size of a finger nail and to remove it, you simply press it in, then it should release. If you have a memory card reader/slot on your PC/laptop, the mini SD card usually needs a separate adapter to make it fit into a standard SD slot.

3. Via Bluetooth - This requires your PC/Laptop to be able to connect with bluetooth devices. You must pair the PC with your phone first so they can communicate with each other. While using your phone, pick the file (picture, music, video, etc) from your phone, select Options, and send via bluetooth.

How do i copy music from laptop to my sonyerikson w810i mobile? where can I download free music for the same mobile phone?


Hi friend,

It is very easy as long as you have the USB cable.

First you can try to connect your phone to your laptop by USB cable, after your mobile phone be recognized by the laptop(when there appeared an icon), you can find the disk of your phone on the laptop, then choose the music in your laptop and press the right button of the mouse, you will see the option "send to", and choose the disk of your mobile phone.Then it is OK.

There are many free music on the internet now, you can search the music whose format is compitable with your mobile phone.

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.
