The Sony Ericsson Device 3017 USB WMC NoMTP Interface and its associated device driver is used to support the Media Transfer Protocol implemented by one of the mainstream operating system platforms in the computer industry. This particular protocol allows the computer user to connect portable devices to the host computer system and synchronize the digital media contents between the device and the Personal Computer. In this context the use of this protocol is concentrated mostly on portable devices like MP3 players, Personal Digital Assistants, Smartphones, and mobile phones among others. These supported hardware components are normally connected to the host machine using the Universal Serial Bus interface port to allow for faster data exchange processes during the synchronization routine. This routine supported by the device driver of the Sony Ericsson Device 3017 USB WMC NoMTP Interface allows the computer user to backup the contents of the portable device in the same manner that the contents of a computer hard drive are backed up to another media.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
This particular protocol applies mostly to newer mobile phones manufactured by Sony Ericsson. Normally when the mobile phone is connected to the host computer system it will be detected as a type of Media Transfer Protocol device. This in turn describes the attached hardware component as a type of mass storage media effectively negating its mobile telephony features. When defined as a Media Transfer Protocol device it is almost impossible to map it similar to the way other storage devices can be shared. The Sony Ericsson Device 3017 USB WMC NoMTP Interface basically is used to supplement the functionalities of the operating system protocol. By using the manufacturer provided device driver the connected hardware component can also be detected as a type of imaging device. This is primarily because majority of mobile phones are equipped with built-in cameras. An accompanying software application may be required to allow the computer user to take advantage of this telephone feature.
