Portable device - MTP (copy files from camera to local directory)



I am trying to create a program that allow me to copy files from usb connected camera to local directory in PC.

The traditional functions like GetDir() or SetDir() or DirSelectPopup() is not working because the camera folder is not mapped as any drive.

May somebody can help or send any example how to see the files (Pictures) in a camera.


Thank you very much


Best Regards

Mightbe also looking into the sourcecode of libmtp helps. But this was written for linux.

But I didn't find any ready to use code for CVI.
