copyfiletodevice progress bar

Jul 25, 2011 at 3:14 PM

Hi,

I am copying files from a local pc to to a pda device and have been using a method of estimating the transfer rate and showing the estimate in a progress bar.

http://www.vbdotnetforums.com/compact-framework-data-access/25455-progressbar-threading.html

That works pretty good, but have found out that different models of pda's have different usb transfer speeds (1.0, 2.0, 3.0) etc.. which throws the estimate out the door and makes the progress bar useless.  I am wanting to try to fix the underlying problem of copyfiletodevice not reporting progress.

From searching around (http://forum.soft32.com/pda/Pogress-Bar-RAPI-accessing-SD-card-ftopict61590.html), I found that copyfiletodevice copies the file over in blocks and Chris stated that we needed to add some eventing to the copy progress.

I am going to try to work on this, but I am just a beginning vb developer so this is a little out of my league.  I would appreciate if someone could help me out.

Thanks
