When I open my Explorer under Windows XP, I have these "folders" on the left hand side:
+ My Documents
-  My Computer
   + Floppy (A:)
   + Local Disk (C:)
   + Control Panel
   -  Nokia Phone Browser
        + Phone memory (C:)    // HOW TO ACCESS THIS FOLDER ??
        + Memory card (E:)
   + Shared Documents
+ My Network Places
   Recycle Bin

Because I don't know how to specify a PATH for this folder, i don't know how to access (e.g. get the list of files and copy files from) this directory...

My Nokia phone is connected via a USB cable..  i have installed the driver and the Nokia PC Suite.. and I think it is the PC suite software that make my phone memories appear under the Windows Explorer.

I want to automatically retrieve some data from my phone... i think the easiest way would be to access those folders as if they were part of the file system in my program...
