How to Upload & Sync Files to SkyDrive from Windows Explorer

Just need to map the following, nothing else is needed.

\\docs.live.net@SSL\yourcid\Documents or Public, Music, Pictures etc. at the end.

or just "yourcid" at end so you can see all the folders from Windows Explorer/My Computer


Without the need for Skydrive viewer or WebDav.

I am running Windows 7 Pro, no office 2010, mapped it normally from Windows Explorer.

SkyDrive as Net disk

I apologise, bad English.
The disk was connected normally and I see all folders and files SkyDrive. I can delete and rename, and also create folders.
I can create text files or from set Ms. Office (.docx and other) on it. But I cannot write down(paste) there other files (for example '.mp3 ') even the small size (less than 1 Mb).
At copying of such file on disk SkyDrive - message Windows "This file stands out is too great for final file system" (at the size 500 Kb).
But if I establish free versions SDExplorer (SDExplorer - Fast and Easy Access to Your Live SkyDrive storage from Windows Explorer) or Gladinet (GLADINET - Download Gladinet Cloud Suite), through them it turns out upload files of any expansions and as to load files with a size more than 100 Mb (through "chunks" folders).
Question: at connection SkyDrive "as a disk" how to upload on it usual files (for example mp3 and avi less than 100 Mb)?
Through the web-interface live.com any files uploading is normal.
Or what on a disk it is impossible to write down anything except documents is connected with technology WebDav, and foreign programs send files on http?
I.e. the main objective of this news to connect a disk only for reading?
Thanks.

HI! I also having similar problem with connecting sky drive. Tried some ways to map online storage, but it is read only. I can not paste there any file, except replacing .txt with the same name.

With drivehq.com all is working

you don't put the #cid= just the classid itself.

I have the same issue. Can't upload nothing besides text files (pdf, docx, etc) from windows. Is there a way to so without a third party app?

same issue for me

I can connect the folder but uploading zipped folders does not work.
Anyway it shows the filesize is to big, even with files ~1MB.
Uploading such files with a browser works flawlessly.

I read Skydrive should support a max. filesize of 100 megabyte?
