Question about HTC G1

My g1 wont install on vista?

Everytime i press mount and plug my g1 into my lap top it says wont install after trying for a while and asks for a disc and then it says to call the manufacturer on my computer i dont know if its vista or the phone. But it still lets me put my music on the phone and transfer pictures just the only problem is it keeps importing all my pictures instead of just one so i wind up having to delete a bunch of copies on my computer of the same pics.Does any one know why it wont install on vista?
thanks

    When I plug in my G1, it's not recognized in the "Computer" folder even when I choose to mount the drive. If there is no on that knows how to resolve this, is there something we can do to get this resolved via Microsoft or HTC?

    Mine refuses to mount, the card can be read directly from a reader but when I mount it on the G1 it shows up as an Unallocated volume in windows disk management.

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 run Vista on my Laptop and my G1 runs fine.

Plug cable into laptop and G1, select mount from the drop down menu on G1.

Your computer should run AutoPlay, asking what you would like to do, select Open Folder.

If AutoPlay does show up, go through My Computer and Select the Removable Drive

How To Download Music To My G1


Well, after you press mount the SD card should show up on your computer as a drive. If you get confused about which drive it is, open 'my computer' or just 'computer' on vista, and then attach your phone. The drive which appears will be the SD card. Then you can copy and paste any files such as music and pictures into that drive.

Laptop or phone don't recognize connection


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.

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.
