Windows CE Plug-In for Total Commander

Posted in Mobility | Tools and Software at Thursday, 03 August 2006 01:15 W. Europe Daylight Time

Today I was checking the list of plug-ins for my favorite Windows Explorer replacement Total Commander. There I found the WinCE file system plug-in (direct download) which plays perfectly with my Dell Axim x51v. No need to launch Explorer just to copy my podcasts to the device. It's been a pain in the neck, especially the inconsistent handling of double-clicks on the device folders: Sometimes a new Explorer window would open for no obvious reason.

The SymbFS plug-in for my Nokia phone didn't work so well, but this is maybe due the its beta state and that development ended in late 2004. If you're a Total Commander user you should definitely take a look on the other plug-ins like Events NT, Registry, ProcFS, Services and WebDAV.

BTW, Dell released firmware update A04 (German version) for the Axim x51v. This release should provide "enhanced CF I/O card performance". Several forum entries state that the update has resolved the disappearing CF card problem. I've updated my device last weekend and didn't have any problems so far.

Update: The NokiaFS plug-in works fine with my Nokia 6680.
