[APP]Hydros 8.0: Media sync utility for Windows Mobile - Beta 4 with touchless sync!!
CURRENT VERSION NUMBER: 8.0 Beta 4
Hydros Media Center[/CENTER]
Are you tired of the same old boring activesync of wmdc for your Windows mobile device? All of us who have used Microsoft’s so-called sync utility know that it’s nothing compared to their Zune software which they have created. Anyway, you’re now in luck. I have finally gotten to the edge of my patience trying to sync up my phone with their software and ive started making my own replacement for it. Currently, Hydros Sync Center supports being used as a normal music player as well as a device sync utility. Due to it being only a beta, you will not be able to transfer files with the phone, but already it is much more user friendly than the old Activesync. All you need to do to install is unzip the package and run the setup.exe installer.
For those of you who don't know what im doing, im trying to make an efficient media player for windows which interacts with windows mobile nicely. As a model, im using many things and features which have been included in Zune Software 4.0. Anyway, I have been working on this alone for a long time and I think it's time to reveal this to the public for some help as well. I would like to post the source code somewhere but im not sure exactly what the process is so please help me on that if you can.

BIG IDEA I NEED HELP FOR
-In order to keep things away from Microsoft ActiveSync, I need to eliminate the who idea of using RAPI as an interface for communication, so I decided that the easiest other method is to impliment my own thing based on TCP. I tried some stuff with TCP and it's actually quite fast, and it allows WIFI SYNC!!!
-Anyway, the part i need help with is the wired sync. With TCP, i need it to be under a wifi so for those devices without TCP, im not sure how to use the COM port it's recognized as for doing TCP transfers. If you have any other recommendations, please do comment below.
-APP IS CODED IN C# so please do consider that when posting code. I am also familiar with other languages but i would prefer this (anything is welcome though).
