It would be great if Tracker Mini could be recognized as an USB key when pluged in a PC (or Mac I guess). This features was in the wishlist for the regular Tracker :
USB File Transfer
The resquest has been rejected, but there is this answer from @miropoly :
Hi @herb_nice , thanks for contributing the wish. We are sorry to reject this but we had to abandon this feature due to technical issues we were having. Because Tracker Mini has more powerful hardware, we might reconsider introducing this feature for that product. Thanks for the reminder that it is important for the community.
So, I just copy/paste the content of this topic from by @herb_nice
The user must power down the tracker, remove the (tiny and fragile) memory card, insert it in a reader, plug it into the computer in order to transfer files, delete or move things around. The user must also remember to unmount the memory card in order to reduce the risk of corrupting data.
The tracker has a USB port and used to support MTP. It would be great to be able to connect it to a computer and copy, rename, move, delete files.
Yes: Power down the tracker, take the memory card out and put it in a reader. Connect that reader to a computer. Do the file access tasks. Unmount the reader. Remove the reader from computer. Remove memory card from the reader. Put memory card in tracker. Power up tracker.
- There are various discussions over at the old Github. (see: Issues · polyend/TrackerBetaTesting · GitHub )
- Before 1.4.0 the existing MTP Transfer was disabled due to reliability issues with the library. (see: Release 1.4.0 Beta 3 · polyend/TrackerBetaTesting · GitHub )
