Hey everyone I just got the G1 for christmas, and iam having some problem with
1. When I connect the usb cable the sd card on the g1 says memory unavailable, also on the booklet on the sd card & phone storage tab to touch use for usb storage, i unplug the usb cable take out the card then put the card back without the usb and its reads it on that menu but still doesnt give me the option for use for usb storage.
What can i do to reslove this?
Also what does jailbreak mean?
first off, the manual is old, one of the ota updates changed how you get a computer to use the sd card as removable drive.
Once you connect the phone via usb to a computer you will get a notification. Pull the notification bar down and touch the use phone as removable storage device if you want to transfer files to the sd card from the computer. Once done you should be able to go to my computer and see the sd card as drive E: or whatever the first free letter is. You can then open that and drag and drop files onto the sd card. While using the phone this way you cannot read the sd card from the phone, this is why it says memory unavailable while connected via usb.
