A reliable set of tools that helps you create Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) implementations, allowing content management on any portable device with storage

editor's review



Media Transfer Protocol Porting Kit is developed as a set of tools that aim to facilitate the transfer of various file types to portable media devices. Initially part of the Windows Media Device Manager 10 SDK, MTP (or Media Transfer Protocol) is designed for device control, allowing the transfer between multiple digital audio or video players.

Unlike USB mass storage devices, some platforms do not provide support for the MTP protocol, which might cause problems while installing the MTP USB device drivers. The Media Transfer Protocol Porting Kit can solve this issue.

Helps manage portable devices

It can be used for embedding multiple indexed descriptors in USB devices, which can be easily identified by USB hosts using special requests. Thus, it is closely related to Windows Media Player, helping users manage content on any portable device that features storage capabilities.

The porting kit offered by Microsoft bundles the complete MTP protocol specifications, detailed documentation, source code samples, guidelines for implementing the MTP on portable audio/video players, digital still and video cameras (using the PTP – “Picture Transfer Protocol”), as well as the necessary tools and instructions for building MTP initiators, responders and MTP/IP devices.

Test MTP implementation and dedicated to old operating systems

Individuals can use the integrated tools in order to build PC-based simulators and then test their MTP implementation using the integrated compliance test tools.

The latest versions of the Windows operating system provide built-in support for MTP, thus this kit is only meant to help users of older versions of Windows.

Bottom line

In conclusion, we can safely say Media Transfer Protocol Porting Kit is highly efficient and helps individuals manage their portable devices, without putting a strain on their computer’s performance. You are not required to be an expert in order to handle this kit and after installing it, you can start using removable storage units with ease.
