Hello.
When I plug a cell phone to my system then windows create a drive in "My Computer" but it has not any label like "C:" or... How can I access it via "CMD"? I can't see it in "DiskPart" too.

Thank you.

I think the iPhone mounts under "Scanners and Cameras" and you should be able to access it using file explorer. If you must access it through cmd line, then you could try something like: https://macroplant.com/iexplorer/tutorials/how-to-auto-mount-a-directory-on-iphone-ipad-ipod

Alternatively, some people are saying you can put the iPhone into "DFU" mode (I think Apple refers to this as recovery mode now) and windows will assign it a drive letter.

Note: I haven't tested either options as I don't have any reason to access the iPhone through a cmd prompt.

I don't think you'll be able to see anything other than the DCIM folder which is essentially your camera roll.

Is it possible without third-party?

I like to see my personal files like photos and videos.
