We show you how to use your HTC HD7 as a USD disk drive with your Windows PC
Please note that this guide should only be followed by advanced users who are comfortable making registry edits. Proceed at your own risk.
Sending files back and forth between your HTC HD7 and your Windows PC is easy enough, but with a little tweaking it can be even easier.
In this guide, we show you how to tweak your registry so that your computer recognizes the HTC HD7 as a removable USB drive. You'll only have access to the Music, Pictures and Videos folders, but those are the most important folders anyway when it comes to moving big files.
- Open Windows Registry Editor by typing regedit in your start menu
- Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB
- Perform a search for ZuneDriver
- The search should yield a result similar to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB\VID_045E&PID_04EC&MI_00\6&27ffd631&0&0000\Device Parameters\WUDF
- Click up one level to the Device Parameters key
- Change ShowInShell from 0 to 1
- Change PortableDeviceNameSpaceExcludeFromShell from 1 to 0
- Change EnableLegacySupport from 0 to 1
- Change EnableDefaultAutoPlaySupport
That's it! You can now plug your HTC HD7 into your Windows PC using the supplied USB cable and it will be recognized as a USB drive.
