Access your Android device over wifi as a Windows shared folder with "Samba Filesharing,' an easy-to-configure app which lets you browse your SD card contents in your favorite desktop file manager.

  • Your Android device becomes visible to other Windows (& SMB compatible) computers on your network.
  • The 'external' storage in your Android device is accessible as a network shared folder.
  • Copy files and folders to and from your Android device using drag and drop.
  • Customizable username, password, Windows workgroup name, and device network (NETBIOS) name.

After installation, launch it and create a password -- default username is SDCARD. Once your changes have been made, tap your Back button to return to the main screen and then tap Menu to bring up the four action buttons. Disable and re-enable SMB services, and you'll receive a notification with the path to your device -- such as \\192.168.0.100 and \\ANDROID.

You can also configure NetBIOS name (ANDROID bit) if you want to use something a bit more personal. The app also features a 'wakelock' which keeps your Droid from dozing when you're trying to access files.

Root access is required, and you'll also need Superuser or Superuser Permissions installed (find one with a quick Market search).
