Page Portable Device Info Tool

Hello Everyone, my name is Eddie and I am a regular in theese forums, specifically the Creative forums. I am currently writing a piece of software to manage portable devices and their content. Some of you who know me and my work may already be familiar with "Absolutely Zen". As part of a test I am conducting for connectivity of devices I have written an application which finds connected devices and displays information about them as well as information for software developers, such as supported content types, supported formats, supported events, and supported commands. Also, through resding thesse forums, I have noticed ALOT of people who have problems with Windows XP and their devices not being recognized, well, in my application I have included a tool which will kick start your device so it works, even if you can't seem to get it to work.

The software is free , Free, FREE! (See screen shots and Setup file attached below.)

Only one thing I ask is this: if you can not get the application to detect your device EVEN AFTER trying the fixes described in my application, I request that you post YOUR PLAYER MANUFACTURER & MODEL and YOUR OPERATING SYTEM VERSION.

This application will work on WinXP (32 Bit and 64 Bit) and Vista.
You can have more than one device connected and it will find them all. It also supports portable devices with MicroSD or other memory cards.

On some devices (such as some Nokia cell phones) the battery may show up as being 0% charged (even if it is fully charged.) This IS NOT a bug. It is because the device does not support the particular feature.

Have fun and enjoy!
