    Thumbs up about copying files to sony walkman

    Hi.

    I copy music to my sony walkman using windows copy and paste functions.
    When i try to copy files from a C program, it does not work. Does anyone know how can I copy files from a C program?

    Thanks.

    Well what did you try, that "didn't work"?

    Process Monitor
    Use process monitor to track the resources opened/closed by explorer, when you do a drag-n-drop.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    It seems that I can't make reference to the F: USB port. When I try to see the files from the DOS system, I just get an error that says, "The system can't find the path"
    Something like it.
    By the way, maybe is not right to post in this site, since I'm not working in C, instead I use APL.
    I was just wondering if you could have an answer to this problem. Thanks.

    So you're trying to access a USB port from DOS using APL? Yes, I'd say you're definitely in the wrong place. Not to mention the wrong era...

    So how do you justify this against your first post?

    The answer to your question is pretty simple... MS-DOS does not know about USB... DOS was dead years before USB came along...

    APL (programming language) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    It would seem there is no shortage of modern up to date interpreters for today's operating systems.
    If you're using one of these, then using the same URN names that explorer was using should work.

    But if you're running some 20+ year old DOS interpreter inside the windows DOS virtual machine, you're pretty much stuck.

    Nice job on the bait-and-switch - not amused at all.
