I would caution against doing this (though Nokia and maybe several people
here would probably say I'm overreacting.)

Some people seem to have issues that completely corrupt beyond repair a MMC
card and it seems to be possibly tied to using the USB cable to transfer
files to/from your PC and the MMC card in the Nokia.


Personally I've only used the USB cable for flashing and I use sftp for
transferring files over the wireless.   It's easier than dealing with cables

I do all my developing in Linux, but I just installed WinSCP on my XP
virtual machine and tried it out: http://winscp.net/eng/download.php

It's as powerful as anything I use in Linux, which says a lot when it comes
to SSH / SFTP.
