Hiya, I'm making a program that'll copy random music directories (being cd's) onto my telephone memorycard. To test the basics, I first programmed a consoleapp that'll index all the dirs of my musicfolder. Below is the code thus far: #include "stdafx.h" #include "windows.h" #include <iostream.h> #include <string.h> #define MAX_DIRECTORIES_CHECK 200 typedef struct{ int index; bool isEmpty; char foldername[120]; }foldernamestruct; foldernamestruct fns[MAX_DIRECTORIES_CHECK]; int listDirectories(char* directory){ HANDLE hFile; WIN32_FIND_DATA FileInformation; hFile = ::FindFirstFile(directory, &FileInformation); if(hFile == INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE) return 3; strcpy(FileInformation.cFileName, fns[0].foldername); fns[0].isEmpty = 0; fns[0].index = 1; printf ("First file name is %s.\n", FileInformation.cFileName); printf(directory); printf(FileInformation.cFileName); printf("\n"); printf(fns[0].foldername); printf("\n"); /*for(int i = 1; i<MAX_DIRECTORIES_CHECK;i++){ if(::FindNextFile(hFile, &FileInformation)==FALSE){ for(int j = i; j<MAX_DIRECTORIES_CHECK;j++) fns[j].isEmpty = TRUE; break; } else{ strcpy(FileInformation.cFileName, fns.foldername); fns.isEmpty = FALSE; fns.index = i+1; } }*/ return 1; } int main(int argc, char* argv[]){ char name[120]; for(int i = 0; i<MAX_DIRECTORIES_CHECK; i++){ fns.isEmpty = TRUE; fns.index = -1; } if(listDirectories("C:\\Documents and Settings\\User\\My documents\\My music")!=1) return 1; //printf("Found Handle \n\n"); /*for(i=0;i<MAX_DIRECTORIES_CHECK;i++){ strcpy(fns.foldername, name); printf(name); printf("\n"); }*/ cin >> name[4]; return 0; } Now, I tried to test the whole by printing the foldernames using printf(), but why won't this work :doh: Have I done something wrong? Can someone help me find the answer... Thanks
