Micro sd card


This means that the device that is trying to READ the card doesn't like something about the card. it also means your card is on the verge of "dying" and should be replaced.

This could make retreiving your data difficult. Try various card readers to see if you can get access to the data and then copy it to your hard drive. Then you can reformat the card and see if that fixes it. If not throw it away and get a new one.

They sell cheap card readers at wal'mart and other stores that can help you read the file...

Sd card


I had the same problem. so what i did is i created a back up on my computer and format it the sd card. and it had a bad file in it that was causing the problem. once i format it the card it was ready to be used again. just make sure you look for that corrupt file so you don't put it again to the already clean card. also i removed the sd card from the g1 and plugged it straigt to the computer. I hope this can help you like it helped me.

Transferring stored data from micro SD card on G1 to new one


plug your G1 to your PC via a USB cable that came with it .., once you plug it in you'll get a notification entitled USB connected .. select it and then choose mount ... once thats done open your My computer icon , you'll see an exrta drive that wasn't there be4 somethig like K or M .. open that and you'll see all the content of your SD card .. copy and past everything to a folder anywhere in your computer ... then all you gotta do is replace the SD card , repeat the same proccess but then time copy everything back to your new SD card .

G1 wont take pictures


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.

G1 SD


if reemoving and reinserting the card doesnt help, youll need to have it reformatted....

do this by connecting your phone to the pc and opening your MY COMPUTER icon > right click REMOVABLE STORAGE/DISK > select FORMAT

**if your computer says something like 'no disk available' try disconnecting the device and select MENU > SETTINGS > SD CARD AND PHONE STORAGE > make sure the check bos for 'USE FOR USB STORAGE' is checked****

after that, set the 'file systems' as FAT32 > select START > read the warning > press OK > once complete, disconnect from the pc and try again!

IF that doesnt work, try to test the sd card in another phone to see if the sd card itself is the problem. if you still have the issue but the sd card works, go ahead and reset the phone.

MENU > SETTINGS > SD CARD AND PHONE STORAGE > FACTORY DATA RESET > RESET PHONE > ERASE EVERYTHING

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.

Memory card micro sd cannot format


Definitely your Micro SD Card has a problem. might be ita a virus problem.

Try to format it by your Computer not by your Phone. If you have a AntiVirus scan your Card and then try to format it.

if you are not successful in one chance Don't afraid at all, try it three or four times by removing and then inserting the Card again in the Computer........
