Device Emulator Storage Card Disappears on Soft Reset

    질문

  • I'm having problems with my device emulator.  I have a shared folder on my computer linked as a storage card on the device emulator.  I can see the storage card and copy files to/from it, but when I am forced to do a soft reset after installing a program, I can no longer see my storage card.  I have tried the emulator which comes with Visual Studio 2005, as well as the stand-alone device emulators 1.0 and 2.0 beta.  Does anyone know what causes this?  Thanks for your help.

  • This is a known bug in the CE drivers that implement folder sharing.  It will be fixed in newer Windows Mobile OS releases, but there are no plans to re-release WM 5.0 or 2003SE OS images with the fix.

  • Sorry to ressurect a dead thread, but is there a workaround for this issue? Or is this fixed in the V3 Standalone Emulator?

  • I have noticed this same problem.  This is especially vexing when I am trying to install .NET Compact Framework.

    When the installation gets to the point where it offers to reset your device, go to the Emulator's "File -->Save State and Exit" menu item, and save/exit.  This will not disrupt the install, since it is complete, but it will save the current state, including the shared folder connection.

    I have also found that it is a good idea to save a "good" copy of your State file.  If you've lost Shared folder connection, nothing short of a hard reset will bring it back.  If you have a good State file handy, replace the current State with the good one, and start the emulator again.  It will come back with the shared folder/storage card OK.

    I launch the standalone emulator from a batch file, which has instructions to first back up the state file.  The previous backup is itself renamed as backup2 first, so I have two generations of backup state data before launching the emulator.  This way, I don't have to worry too much about messing up.

    It took me forever to work this out!
