    Anyone knows of any app that can use the E585's memory? Or perhaps someone can write an app for it? It will very useful.

    FileBrowser might do it for you.

    For example, I will allow me to copy files to/from and SD card plugged in to a USB slot (via a mini SD card reader) on my old DLink Storage Router, which I was about to trow out.

    May I know if the router's main page is locked with a password and I need to enter a password in order to access the memory in the router. Will this software work on it?

    If you are asking whether FileBrowser let's you enter (and store) a user name and password for each device you connect to, the answer is yes.

    This don't guarantee that it will work for you but I there is a good chance that it will. You won't know for sure until you try it.

    Hi,

    I tried FileBrowser on an Huawei E 5... But I do not know how to connect to it.
    I tried the IP address and the web interface user name and pw but FileBrowser denies to connect. Any ideas?
    Internet access works flawlessly. And I seem not to find any settings to share the SD card. Neither over web interface or windows settings and management tool.

    Did you have \\ in front of the IP addess (e.g. \\192.168.0.1)? With that and the user name and password I have been able to connect to SMB shares quite a few devices such as a Western Digital NAS, USB HDDs and SD cards on a DLink Storage Server and an SD card plugged into an HP wireless printer.

    The important factor whether the device has any SMB shares set up for the memory media, most do.

    A purpose built device that does the job is AirStash but there many others will do it too.

    That's unfortunate.

    I am sure that you will find FileBrowser is generally very useful.

    I can use OPlayer's web browser to watch videos on the E585 SD card by using the built in web browser pointed to 3.home/sdcard/FILENAME.AVI

    Unfortunately, it doesn't support directory listings if pointed to 3.home/sdcard so you need to know the name, but yes, it works.
