MTP gadget driver
 
Hi all,

is there a MTP gadget driver implementation for the mainline kernel?

Even if the driver is an alpha/beta release i would be interested to test/improve the sources.

Thanks in advance,
Robert

if you are talking about media transfer protocol then i have had success with libusb and libmtp

Yes, I mean Media Transfer Protocol. I know the two libs: libusb/libmtp but i thought they are only used to access USB/MTP devices?

But what I want to do is to create a MTP device, so I thought I have to use a Gadget driver for this. E.g. the usbfs gadget driver takes a Filesystem and provides it as an USB Mass storage device.

I want the same thing, but only with the Media Transfer Protocol.

Thanks,
Robert

so you want drag-and-drop functionality from mtp devices. i am not a device driver expert so i will suggest using libmtp to emulate that functionality.

like:
Code:

ls -> mtp-files
rm -> mtp-delfile
mkdir -> mtp-newfolder
cp -> mtp-sendfile

like creating a front end for the libmtp calls. sorry i couldnt be of more help.

Hi schneidz,
thx for your response.

I know the mtpfs, but for my understanding it is used to map the contents of a MTP device in the Userspace Filesystem (FUSE). But what I want to do is to take the contents of my Userspace Filesytem and provide it to e.g. a normal Windows PC.

So it is the other direction.

i have a creative zen vision w that doesnt work with win2k. so instead of paying $400 for windows vista my solution was to download and run knoppix-live-cd.

are you taliking about a specific media player. i think the manufacturer (in my case creative) makes the device drivers so if your using a current version of windows it should work.

i dont have much experience with windows programming (is fuse available for windows ?) if more than one pc consider running samba.
