    Re: MTP and PTP information

    I'm not sure what you mean by how the data gets transmitted - its sent according to the PTP/MTP protocol currently over USB.

    MTP uses ECom plugins in a similar way as SyncML does in that there is i.e. a plugin for dealing with music files, a plugin for dealing with pictures (but its not quite as 1 to 1 straightforward as that).

    Why do you need to know about it? Do you want to write a plugin for an unhandles data type?

    Re: MTP and PTP information

    SyncML doesn't deal with those types I was using it as an example of how it corresponds with MTP in terms of centent type being handled by specific plugins.

    SyncML has one DP (Data provider plugin) for contacts, one for calendar, one for messaging etc. In a similar way MTP has one DP for music, one for video etc.

    You could add new DPs to SyncML to deal with music and video or you could add new DPs to MTP to deal with calendar or contacts etc.

    No I don't have any code and it would be better if you said what you actually want to do instead of asking questions without context.
