Nope. It's not there. I did find it under "Portable Devices" but not under
Disk Management. It's at "Location 0" and has a "device instance ID" of
USB\VID_0781&PID_7460\0002FA821BB583890002FA821BB14592

I had to get Windows Media 10 in order to get Media Transfer Protocol
(MTP - how clever of MS) capability before it would show up in explorer at
all.

I found an mtplib project on sourceforge but was hoping cygwin wouldn't need
something like this.

I guess I'll have to drag icons around for a while - what a drag.
