camera scanner access over network
Posted on 2011-09-19
So lets say you connect a camera, scanner, smart phone, or some other similar device to a Windows 7 machine via USB. It shows up in Windows Explorer under "Portable Devices". From there you can double click on it and if there is any type of folder structure, you can continue browsing until you reach the files. The "Path" in the Explorer address bar is something like "Computer\Device" - which obviously is not a UNC path or anything.
So the question is.... is there anyway to remotely access the files on this device using some sort of UNC path (and if so what IS it)? There have been instances when this would have been handy.
