Accessing a Bluetooth device via a drive letter?

Posted: 02-23-2009, 01:39 PM
Hi,

I have a bluetooth device that I can connect to via the Bluetooth
Information Exchanger. Using the File Transfer option in there I can access
the file system of my bluetooth device from the Windows Explorer.

However, I would really like to access the filesystem of my bluetooth device
from the command line. Is there any way to do this, ideally through a drive
letter that is mapped to my the directory structure of my bluetooth enabled
device.

Many thanks,

David

Which protocol stack are you using? Microsoft's bundled Bluetooth
protocol stack (SP2 or greater) will only give modem, serial port or
PAN access as Microsoft has yet to WHQL certify Bluetooth devices.

The one I'm currently using turns out to be from Toshiba, but I'm happy to
switch to another Bluetooth stack if it can give me drive letter access to my
device. Is there anything like that available?

You might be able to use Microsoft's Bluetooth beside Toshiba. But I
do not believe you can use either Widcom/Broadcom's or BlueSoliel's
Bluetooth as the Bluetooth radio needs to be in their list of
compatible and "registered" hardware.
