My main interest in a drive letter was using Total Commander on a Windows PC. I love the left/riight window concept for moving/copying files. I have been using Total Commander for over 10 years and just feel it's the best file management tool out there. I got a work around without installing any apps on the Android or PC. Total Commander has some internal commands and I was able to setup a menu option and do a system call to "cm_OpenDrives" which will open the SG3 in either the left or right window. Then everything acts pretty much as normal except for creating sub-directories, for some reason that does not work.
For anyone interested in the setup on Total Commander I did guide on my blog:
Q's Tech Spot: Accessing your Android device from Total Commander
That's a great bit of info to know! Thank you for sharing!Google dropped support for USBMS in Android 4
Yeah but that's not a "Drive letter" like E:, F:. It makes it harder to access the device from certain utilities that way.At least, on Win7, Windows DOES assign drive letters to the two "devices" when the phone is connected -- you just don't see them in the normal place in the drive tree.
You have to go all the way back up to "Computer". When you click on that, you will see the Android "device" -- and it will have two "drives", one for the "phone" and one for the "SD card".
