Hello together :)

I developed an "USB Storage Enabler" Tool for Windows phone 7, so you can easy enable or disable the WP7 USB functionality.

You need to have Zune installed and one device connected for least one time.
To enter the USB Storage you'll close Zune.

Now you can use your phone like a simple USB Stick :)

This tool requires .NET 2.0.

Yeah, it looks like an another known and great tool ;)


Here is the download link for you:

WP7 USB Storage Enabler
German post on the original page

I've tested this software on NT 6.x (Vista + 7). Please use this software at your own risk.

You only see emtpy folders? Try this:

Normal way:

1. Start Zune and connect your device
2. Click on "Enable" in the USB Storage Enabler Tool
3. Close Zune (or your folders are empty)



If your problem still exists, try this ( Thank you fonck03 :)):

@ this point I had my phone listed on "computer" with the storage folder, but no sub folders inside (music, photos, all that)

5 closed zune (still no sub folders)
6 diconnected phone and reconnected, worked!!

Works with Omnia 7 but I am seeing two icons for portable devices in my computer... Can you look into this?

Phone is on NoDo with C7 unlock and Samsung tools to prevent relocking.

I did this change in registry when it was announced public, but unfortunately "My ringtones" folder is not visible...

Is there any way to access it from Windows Explorer?:rolleyes:

Anyway, this is a great tool for not having to mess around in registry;)

Only bug i see is something i had got with the registry hack. It shows 2 phones (Both are mine and both access file system.

Works great though!

    No method known, sorry. Contrary to the thread title and assumptions of many, this tool does *NOT* enable USB Mass Storage on your phone. Instead, it merely un-hides the MTPZ (Media Transfer Protocol, Zune extension) device, which happens to be your phone, from Explorer. Although MTP[Z] devices expose what appears to be a hierarchical filesystem, they are not considered blok storage devices and as such can't be mapped as drives.

    Oh,... try to run this tool as an administrator. (maybe UAC or somethings is blocking some registry functions)
