New

Support for dual memory card cameras (in Windows Vista or newer) allowing to map each card to a different drive letter simultaneously.

New

Support for Windows 8.

New

Ability to include original camera's directory name in the picture name format. Having the original directory name allows to replicate the whole camera's directory structure in the mapped drive letter.

When this feature is used in Windows Vista or newer it also allows to physically delete (empty) folders on the camera's storage card.

New

The setup can automatically pre-configure the PTPdrive being installed. This is useful for mass/silent installations where no manual configuration is allowed.

Changed

The PTPdrive mapping application now pre-selects the preferred drive letter (as configured in profiles) whenever a camera selection is made.

Fixed

Error message "Invalid format" showed in the Profile section of the PTPdrive Settings application when selecting a profile which does not have any picture name format set.

Memory leak when taking pictures while camera is still connected to the computer, which resulted in temporary disappearing of the drive content.

New

Fixed

Various bugs in "Profile editor".

New

  • Current picture name format with option to temporarily override it

Current format string not correctly updated after clicking Refresh button in the main window.




PTPdrive 2.2.222

New

Support for serial numbers of attached cameras. The Windows can detect camera serial numbers starting with Windows Vista, in older version of Windows camera serial numbers are not working.

New

Camera profiles allow to specify an alias which gets included in the drive name visible in Windows Explorer. This is useful in combination with camera serial numbers to distinguish multiple cameras of the same type/brand mapped at the same time.

Fixed

Default "picture taken" time set to the current time instead of using year 1600. This default time gets used when camera does not report the actual time when the picture was taken. Having current time is better than year 1600 when using date in the picture name format...




PTPdrive 2.1.215

New

Automatic mapping of a connected camera to a drive letter without asking for drive letter (registered version only).

New

Camera profiles allowing to customize automatic drive letter mapping as well as the file name format for each camera separately.

A camera profile gets created automatically once a camera is mapped to a drive letter for the first time. From that time its profile can be edited via 'PTPdrive Settings' application..

Changed

Using WIA camera name instead of WIA camera description as the camera name, to distinguish between two or more same brand cameras connected at the same time.

As a real life example this change allows to correctly recognize between two exactly same Nokia phones connected at the same time via Bluetooth.

Fixed

Compatibility issue with installing on Windows 7 64-bit.
