    Hi. i have the same problem. Ive been looking on the net for this problem and seems theres a few people in the same boat. The only answer ive found is to do with usb on the computer. It seems that people with older computers like me dont have usb 2.0 and people with a newish computer have a usb 2.0 connection and works fine. I read some where that the g1 should be backward compatilble with usb 1 but seems its not. im gonna try it on my bro's laptop tomoorow so i'll keep u updated. to get my music and stuff on the card ive had to put the g1 card in my nokia n95 and drag n drop the tunes i wanted on that way.

    Have you tried pulling down the shade and MOUNTING the SD card in the G1? I got the same error the first time I tried - it was because I was not mounting the card.

    Hi all. Just an update. i tried my g1 on my bro's and mums computers. both pretty new and both worked fine. So must be to to with the age of the computer. i was sure that it was to do with the lack of usb 2 on my computer but SirFenick above said his works fine with usb 1 so not sure. Either way its a good excusse to get a new lap top lol

    I tried to download music frm my computer to my g1 which I've done plenty of times, and when I tried it this time my computer said it needed to be formatted to do so. so I pushed format and now my SD card on my phone says its blank and now all my info and pics on my phone isn't on there. what can be done to fix this if anything possible????
