    transfer data from mobile to pendrive without os

    Hello!

    If it's only a copy (bit for bit) from one device to the other, you don't need
    OS, you don't need FAT, NTFS, FAT32. You just have to wire the USB devices
    to some kind of microcontroller and just repeat read and write block operations
    between the 2 USB sticks.

    pendrive transfer without pc

    I have seen some devices which allows a micro-controller to access a USB device via a micro-controllers SPI port. Even takes care of the file system. The devices are made by FTDI and the device is called Vinculum VNC1L. These are actually a microcontroller but the site has firmware that can be downloaded to perform the above function. Certainly much easier than trying to develop a USB host yourself.

    which types of transfers do pen drives use

    Hello!

    No, you don't need an OS to display a file list.
    Just access to the raw blocks can make it.

    Beside this, the original question was about to copy the full contents of a
    USB stick, not to select files. So in this case, you can do it with a very trivial
    system.

    transfer page file to pen drive

    When discussing low-level data copy between USB memory devices, it's meaningful to think about data throughput, too. With todays xGByte devices, any solution below High Speed USB may be regarded inacceptable.

    If you target to high speed USB copy, you won't most likely find a more economic solution than the MCopy device shown in the above link. Basically it's an ARM9/linux system with dedicated high speed USB host controller - and a state-of-the art mobile LCD display. See the hardware platform specification http://www.uniconsys.com/devkit-sod.html

    ya, this device is cool for this project, but still many thing have to concern.
    btw one thing i wan to make sure is VNC1L is a USB controller or Microcontroller?

    few byte file copy is my first target.:D. will try to improve it after my first prototype.



    THANKS :D

    The device is a USB host controller with a built in CPU for handling the USB protocol and depending on the firmware loaded it can handle the file system as well. Outside of the chip you can consider it just as an intelligent USB host controller. All you have to worry about is talking to the device to get a directory listing and reading/writing files, the VNC1L does the rest :D

    Handling the USB protocol as well as low end file system management are complex pieces of software. You can customise the VNC1L with the appropriate firmware to take care of all of this.

    Thank you for ur valuable information. It would be great if u can provide me the circuit level details of the device. Can u tell me the processor used in it?

    Re: Pen drive to pen drive transfer without a PC

    Hey guys the said technology is in the hand of Indian Inventor and has registered more than 13+ 16 patents national and international on it.
    visit him at
    http://sites.google.com/a/brainchamber.net/drivo/

    You can get more details of his firm at www.brainchamber.net

    Dear friend I am happy with your replay, the work is done with the simple configuration board for the microcontriller it is implemented by the Brain Chamber Technologies. Even I have tried on the same but my own patents filed in 2005 were cancelled by Patent office due to earlier registrations by Brain Chamber team.
    The said Brain Chamber team has filed many patents on it.
    Very Badluck.......
