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.
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!
