USB-connected Android device file system interaction problems

#1 Post by Strawberry » 19.09.2018, 10:07

Hi Marek,

Thank you so much for answering my "What is your personal usage ratio FC / MSFE and why?" message,
If that's alright with you I will carry carry on the discussion about the Android problems
in this newly-created bug report to keep the two threads separate for forum clarity.

This was our current subthread on the Android problems topic:
Strawberry wrote: Interacting with the file system of a USB-connected Android device is really ultra-buggy compared to doing it with MS File Explorer
so I have for now given up using FC for that (fingers crossed FC will become better with USB-connected Android devices in future FC versions!)
Marek wrote: I can not test all possible Android devices but on my Windows 10 I have no problems with my Samsung smartphone or tablet.
I can:
- copy/move files and folders
- drag&drop
- copy&paste
- rename file/folder
- delete files/folders
- view files (Ctrl+Q, F3)
- edit files (F4)
- thumbnails view
What do you have to do with MS Explorer?
Maybe you use older Windows?
So, first, my Windows, Android and FC configs:
Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bits SP1
Android Lollipop version 5.0.2
FreeCommander XE 2018 Build 780 32-bit public beta

I am not going to exhaustively list all the problems I have encountered with USB-connected Android device file system interactions
but here are a couple that are reproducible all the time on my config combination (some other problems happen more unpredictably),
hopefully this will help you identifying some reasons I am encountering these problems:

1) When I try to rename a file located on my Android device I get this error message in a dialog box titled "FreeCommander":
"No such interface supported"

2) When I try to create a new folder on my Android device, a dialog box titled "FreeCommander" pops up
with a big white on red cross but no text inside the dialog box.

Any ideas what could be the main reason(s) for these problems?

Many thanks in advance and kind regards

Marek

The reason is Windows 7.
The known MS interfaces works with Windows 10 but not with Windows 7.

Hi Marek,

Thank you for your answer :)

It's really a pity because I much prefer Windows 7 than Windows 10 and I plan to carry on using Windows 7 for a very long time
(and I'm not the only one, according to Net Marketshare, as of August 2018, Windows 7 desktop market share is 42%, Windows 10 is 34%
Desktop OS share by version).

That would be great if you could support Android devices with Windows 7, do you have any plans for that in the future or not at all?

Kind regards

Marek

I'm sorry but my experience is different.
Most users who access my homepage use Windows 10.
There is other statistics too http://gs.statcounter.com/windows-versi ... /worldwide
