Drive letter for MTP connection under Windows

There are a number of Windows file utilities I'd like to use to manage files on my device (Samsung Tab 10.1). To use them, I need to mount my tablet as a drive letter.

How can I do this?

  • Can you please be more specific with the Windows app you are trying to use. 1. Windows automatically mount if you're connected with UMS (USB Mass Storage) 2. Windows Explorer does great job of browsing file system without a glitch

  • The question is about assigning a drive letter. I can browse the files just fine. Commented Nov 2, 2012 at 3:29
  • Doesn't Windows automatically assign a drive letter if device is mounted?

  • No, it assigns is as a device name, not a letter. Commented Nov 2, 2012 at 12:17

    @SachinShekhar: don't see any particular reason this question can't exist here, since it's certainly an issue with using an Android device. Is it also appropriate for Super User? Perhaps, but that, in and of itself, doesn't make it off topic here. To the OP: I think the duplicate will cover what your issue is - the device is not getting a drive letter because it uses MTP rather than universal mass storage (UMS). Unfortunately, there is generally not a completely reliable way to work around that (especially if you're unrooted). Commented Nov 2, 2012 at 13:51
