I take my G1 everywhere. For me, it’s an MP3 player and a basic camera. So, naturally, I thought it would be helpful to be able to attach it to my CR48 in order to access those picture and audio files.
Unfortunately, that is not going to happen. 🙁
When I first plugged in my G1 and told it to enable its USB mass storage mode, a message appeared on the CR48 stating that it had detected media and was scanning it. I waited patiently to see if it would open a window to show me what goodies it had discovered. And I waited. And waited. Nothing appeared.
Next, I hit CTRL+S, to open the rudimentary file browser (which I had discovered inadvertently at another time). I attempted to locate some sort of mount point for the G1, but to no avail.
Finally, I typed in file:///media/ to try and navigate to another point in the CR48’s internal file structure. Still, nothing with regards to my G1 was to be found.
So, at this point, I have to consider connecting my G1 to my CR48 to be a total failure. I have yet to test the CR48 with a stock memory card reader. Of course, if that works, I could pull the MicroSD card from my G1 and access it using that. But that certainly represents a step backwards in convenience.
Note: In case it matters, my G1 is running CyanogenMod 6.1 firmware, which puts it at Android 2.2 (“Fro[zen ]Yo[gurt]”). I can’t speak for success nor failure with other firmware versions. However, I have not experienced any other connectivity issues with this phone…so…I strongly suspect that my experience in this case is not dependent on the firmware version.
