    The first time I plugged my G1 into my iMac, it was recognized, no problem. I chose the mount selection, tossed some music on it, again, no problem. But now, every time I try to plug it in, my Mac is telling me that it can't read the disc and is asking me to revive and use the disk utility to fix it. I don't know what any of that does, and I don't want to screw up my phone. So i just close it and don't try to put music on there. Now, a day later, the mac won't recognize it at all, even when I properly try to mount it (interesting sentence there). Any suggestions?

    Do you properly unmount using the eject button in OSX? If not, you've probably corrupted the card so the system is confused. I never have any problems on my Macbook Pro with my g1. I would say if you have a PC, plug in and copy all your stuff off, and then format the card FAT32. Then try it on the mac and see if that does the trick.
