I thought if the card was inserted into the mp3 player when I was copying music that it would copy to both the player and card, but that's not the case. So what do I need to do in order to get the music transferred to the card?

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer. You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track.

is your card 2 gigs (max)? are your files mp3 files? you can also try this way.. format card, place it back in cell...connect usb cable (make sure to switch cell to data connection) to cell and pc... copy and paste or click and drag to cell from your pc.. (my computer) ... note you can put music videos on the card too........
Insert the SD-card into a SD-slot in your computer, if your computer has such a slot. Then, Windows will assign a "drive-letter" (not 'A:' or 'C:' or 'D:', but you get the idea) to the storage-device.
Then, copy files from your C: drive-letter to the "new" drive-letter.
Or, if your SD-card fits into your portable music-player, and the music-player can connect to your computer with a special USB-cable, then insert the SD-card into the music-player, and connect the USB-cable, and turn the music-player on. Then, copy the files.
I have successfully used the Micro-SD card by removing it from the phone (Power the phone off first, please!), and inserting the micro-SD card into my PC card reader using an SD-Card adapater, which makes it appear as a Drive to my (WIndows) PC.
I then just copy music files into the "My Music" folder, and they show up when I put the card back into my phone.
I have also been successful using a USB cable, and then settting the phone to "Main Menu | Settings & Tools | Tools | USB Mass Storage" Then the phone looks like a disk on my computer, and again, I copy the files into the "My Music" folder on the micro-SD card while it's in the phone. Don't know if you can copy to internal phone memory in this method; I've never needed to try it.
A couple of things: I'm using ".m4a" files out of iTunes; I have also used ".mp3" files I've edited as ringtones, but I haven't tried ".wmp" files, so I don't know if it's a file format issue.
So are you successfully copying files to your phone and just not able to play them, or are you not able to even get them copied onto the phone?
If you are trying to play the file then it will be unmounted as it needs to disconnect from the pc to do that you could try copying them in batches if that doesnt work it may be a USB driver fault in which case i would reccomend reinstalling the G1 driver.
Insert the cd into your computer and open it with media player, copy the music onto media player.
Once you have done this, go to 'My Music' folder and copy the songs you have just ripped from the cd onto your memory card. If you cannot find the songs in my music check in the unknown folder (in my music) and it will be in there with the date of copying so you know which folder it is.
