Windows 8: Get files from device

    Question

  • Dear all,

    I'm programming for getting audio files from devices which connect to my PC.

    With normal Removable devices, I can get folders and files easily by object DeviceInformation.

    But with MTP device, I can not scan files by DeviceInformation.

    Is there any way to get files of MTP device on Windows 8 C#.

    Please help me.

    Thanks and Best Regards.

  • This is deliberate. Media placed on MTP device likely is DRM'ed and bound to the portable device. You are not supposed to extract it in original  digital form.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
