    Disable PC-Suite usb connection in symbian 3rd

    Hi. I am developing a security application which will lock the symbian 3rd device if you lose it. I´ve been able to lock all the functionality of the phone if the pin code inserted is wrong. We don´t want anybody to access to our private information if we lose the phone or it is stolen. So we lock the device. But you can access to the information stored in the phone connecting the PC-Suite usb data cable to the pc. So what I want is to disable this option when my application is running, and when the right pin code is inserted I will enable the option again.

    May anybody help me? I´ve read there is a PC Suite Connectivity API 1.1 but it seems not to work for Symbian 3rd edition. If there is anybody who knows how to disable this option programatically I would be very grateful.

    Re: Disable PC-Suite usb connection in symbian 3rd

    The PC Suite Connectivity API 1.1 works fine with S60 3rd Edition (based on Symbian OS 9.1, there is no "Symbian 3rd edition"). However, the PC Suite API depends on the full PC Suite to be installed (and it doesn't offer any kind of device locking services, but APIs for file transfer and application installlation from a Windows app running on a PC).

    So do you know if there is any way to make my application reject or detect the connection with the pc by the usb cable?
    Thanks

    I haven´t found a solution yet. Could you give me any clue? Is it possible to disable the USB port killing any process, or at least detect if it has been connected?
    Thanks
