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.

Have you tried to format the card.
1.
  • Start up a computer with Windows XP, Vista, windows 7or Insert the SD card into an external memory card reader or into the computer's built in card reader. If it the first time a SD card has been inserted into the computer, Windows will recognize the SD card and automatically install drivers to read the memory card.
  • 2Go to the computer view by clicking on the windows start menu icon in the bottom right corner of the computer. In Windows 7 and Vista click "Computer". In Windows XP click "My Computer"
  • 3Right click on the SD drive under the computer heading. A dialog box with different options for the drive will appear. Click on "Format" to bring up the formatting dialog box.
  • 4Select the type of formatting (also known as file system format). In Windows XP or Vista there are several choices including FAT, FAT 32, and NTFS. In Windows 7 there is an added choice called exFAT formatting. This is an improved FAT formatting type with improved meta data capabilities. Choose the formatting type, name if the drive if desired, check or uncheck the "quick format" option, and press the "Start" button. When the SD card format is complete Windows will provide a notification.
    If you need further assistance please feel free to let me know. Thanks and have great day, Midwest-tek

    MY G1 KEEP SAYING INSERT THE SD CARD AND I HAVE ONE IN THERE ALREADY.


    Does the card "read" in a computer, or other phone? There the steps to try first, Also make sure its of a capacity the G1 supports, if the card does read in another device then your phone needs looking at, maybe try a freinds card in your phone? also if your card doesnt read in other devices, then your card looks like it is faulty.

    My HP laptop windows XP won't read my Nikon D80 SD card. It recognizes the card but tells me it is unformatted. My computer is specked to read the card and the computer reads an olympus XD card just fine....


    The problem with formatting is it could get machine specific. The only way you can use the card with your laptop is to format it with your system, use it with your camera and try reading it with the laptop.

    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.

    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.
