Sub_title: Just in case compatibility is putting you off!
 

I've owned my nokia lumia for about 5 months now and haven't connected it to a windows pc yet (i rarely use anything but puppy).

Apparently to save costs, these phones use the mpt storage protocol which means they aren't seen as a flash drive etc.

Luckily in Puppy, we have PupCamera which, when you plug in the phone, pops up and lets you access the phone memory and the sd card!

This lets you copy stuff from phone to pc but also lets you copy from pc to phone too.
The first time I tried this, it came up with a load of errors and even though it had appeared to copy over, my phone wouldn't show the album I had just copied.
That is until a couple of hours later when it miraculously appeared in the album list.
Thats obviously a WP8 'feature' i guess.

Now I just copy over and quickly reboot my phone and whatever I copied over is ready to use, a little clunky i agree but it works!

Hope this helps someone Smile

It would seem that I can also access my Iphone 3 the same way. As soon as I plugged it into my pc the puppy camera aplication popped up. All I can see is my photos in the camera1 folder the other folders are empty well I cant see anything in them. Would be nice to find the music folder that way i can add songs to it.

Puppy precise 5.7.1 Fatty

Precise 5.6.1 but mtp is an old format so I would expect it to work with any puppy with pupcamera
