New Android phones/OS invisible to FC

#1 Post by worksong » 25.04.2013, 02:05

Have long used Free Commander to manage data on my phones. The Galaxy S2 always showed up as 2 removable drives [the phone, & the SD card]. Worked great.

Just upgraded to Galaxy S3, Android 4.1.1, & find that there's no USB mass storage. Options are limited to MTP ["media player"] & PTP ["camera"]. Problem is that FC doesn't "see" the phone under either MTP or PTP, & doesn't show the data card.

In Win 7 Pro Explorer, I can see phone & SD card, & handle data normally...but I HATE Explorer.

Any ideas how to enable FC capability here?

Try to use the new FreeCommander XE-version:

No Problem with my Galaxy S3.

Thanks...but I've now installed XE & no change. Still see both phone & SD card in Explorer. Any other suggestions?

I have the same problem with my HTC DNA smart phone. There is no indication of it being connected. In Q-Dir 5.55 it shows up as a portable device with the name HTC6435LVW. The same name shows up in Explorer with no reference tp a portable device. Both explorer and Q-Dir allow me to read and write files in the Non-phone storage area. Is there something I should be doing in Free Commander XE to access the phone?

Oops. I should have said I'm running Win 7 64bit.

Still no solution? addon/plug-in..?
Do you know how TotalCommander or others are about that. Because in my Win7 Pro the MTP is pretty crappily badly integrated with the file system.

FC 2009 is not maintained anymore.
MTP transfer has been implemented in FC XE 665 beta public release and refined in 668 beta donor release.
