The Microsoft® Windows Media® Device Manager Software Development Kit (SDK) enables developers to create applications that can transfer audio files from any media player based on the Windows Media Format SDK to any portable audio player that uses a service provider plug-in based on the Windows Media Device Manager SDK.

For example, you can use the SDK to:

  • Manage the distribution of files as they are transferred between a media player on a computer and a portable audio player.
  • Write plug-ins, called service providers, that allow devices made by independent hardware vendors to function within the Windows Media Device Manager framework.

This general introduction contains the following sections.
