Mobile Device and File Dialog Box

Hello all,

The program I am creating takes certain files found on a Pocket PC and places
them on a specific directory on a network drive. It is automated in the
transfering of the files, and in recording in the database the paths the data
were
saved to. When I demo the application using example files on different
network drives it works great, but when I try to explorer to my sync'd Pocket
PC, there is no drive called "Mobile Device" or any other designation linking
to my Pocket PC.
--------Code Breakdown-------
I have a browse button on a form thats calls the windows explorer dialog box
as found here:http://www.mvps.org/access/api/api0001.htm. As mentioned I can
access every network drive I have on my server, but there is no link for the
Mobile PC. I do however have the link to the Mobile Device in the normal My
Computer, Windows
Explorer and on the ActiveSync program. I did notice that in other programs
(Word, excel) the open/save dialog box there has no link to the Mobile Device
either.

Is there a flag I have to set to be able to see my Pocket PC using the
open/save dialog box,
or is another application I may have to link to? Is what I want to do even
possible?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When you configure Active Sync, you have to choose to sync your Notes,
Tasks, Inbox, etc. In order for what you are trying to do to work, you must
sync Files as well. When you choose to synch Files, a shortcut will be
placed on your Windows Desktop, to a sub-folder in your My Documents folder.
The default name is PocketPC_MyDocuments.

Once created, it cannot be renamed or moved without having to go back and
set up a new partnership - so don't move it or rename it.

This is your gateway between the mobile device and your PC. Files put into
this folder are automatically synced with the mobile device when connected.
