    Hi guys :)

    Been searching for this, but all I can find is:
    "I recommend EStrong file explorer...".
    I have EStrong file explorer installed on my phone. Now what?

    How can I access my HTC Desire S with my PC (using wi-fi)?

    Sidenote: I want to copy photos without having to connect the USB every time...


    Thanks in advance, cheers :)

    In Estrongs do select the tab LAN > Menu button > New > Scan
    Now Estrongs searches for your shares on your home network via WiFi.

    If you share is protected do not use Scan, do use Server > signin you user name and your password.

    EDIT: I see, I described access phone -> PC and you want PC -> phone :)
    So you have to use an other app than Estrongs.

    "Connect your phone via cable, bluetooth or infrared and you'll be surprised how easy and efficient you can manage your phone with this compact software. Since it's first appearance MyPhoneExplorer evolved into the most popular freeware tool for SE-phones and is constantly extended by new features. Since version 1.8 MyPhoneExplorer supports also Android-based phones (connected via WiFi, USB cable or Bluetooth)"

    Seems to be no wi-fi support :(

    I'd just transferred over 1GB of stuff to my laptop from my Desire HD using that app over WiFi mere minutes before typing that post ;)

    Also read the bracketed part at the end of the paragraph. :)

    SwiFTP is very handy for that. Just need an ftp prog for easiest browsing and moving data from and to your desire.
