My requirement is to load a text type file and dump to the RS232 port.

The file could be from a local drive on the same machine (windows partition) or from a network drive.

When running SheelTreeView, it only shows the Linux installation.

If I use thunar, all the devices are listed and I can access them so they appear to be accessible.

How do I get them into ShellTreeView?

Are these drives mounted correctly? I only have Linux on a virtual machine on a Windows host, but when everything is set up properly I can see the common folder from the linux VM, also from TShellTreeView.

Is there a directory some where in the Linux file system that points to the mounted drive? Bit like windows mapping ?

As a side line, is there a way to sort ShellTreeView alphabetically ?

Probably /etc/mtab for mounted file systems. You'll get a better answer for this from Google...

Use TShellTreeView.FileSortType.

Yes, set the property FileSortType to fstAlphabet

To list all mounted drives set the Root property to /mnt
