For more information see this question

All is working fine, except I now find one thing is missing - I need to be able to  create folders on the device.

So I need to the code that would do this, or preferably just update the demo project to include an example (via another button)

So... added create folder functionality and fix some stuff.
this is done as recursive function (again) - so you can add full path with few sub-folders which doesn't exists at all.

It is very similar to copy file to specific folder on device....

Unfortunately the new code in V11 won't compile for me (V10 is still OK).

And if you declare function like
function TForm12.GetDeviceId: WideString;
...

Open in new window

OK, it compiles but I can't create any folders. For example in the "create spec. folder" box I have:

s10001\Pictures\test

But I get the error "cannot create destination folder"

attached is the log

Strange - it works when creating a folder in the root "s10001", but not anywhere deeper

For example entering the following works:

s10001\test

However, the following does not:

s10001\pictures\test

Log is attached

... also another issue I noticed - I Need to know the exact name of the device as shown in Windows explorer. For example, I have a "Garmin Oregon 650" GPSr unit connected:

gpsr
However, when I interrogate the mtp_demo log I can't see this exact reference (the 650 is missing, which is very important as that is the model number):

FriendlyName len=7
FriendlyName=GARMIN
DeviceDescription len=13
DeviceDescription=Oregon Flash

Open in new window


How can we get the exact name as shown by Windows explorer
