Re: DDPB Installer

And couple of things to verify. One, make sure playbook is recognized by pc or mac. A good way you tell is to look and see if it shows up as a extra hard drive in file explorer on pc or finder on Mac. Second, verify password you are using is the one entered under storage and file sharing not the one entered under security settings. Of course file sharing should be turned on.

Re: DDPB Installer

I've never had to set a password for storage and file sharing to access the device with DDPB. Development mode requires a password be set under security. That is the one that should be used.

That is the password I have been using which I think is the same as my ID password.

Re: DDPB Installer

Try resetting the password on the Playbook and try again. Also, does the Playbook show up in My Computer as another drive?

Re: DDPB Installer

Do I need both file sharing and development mode turned on even though I am connected using a USB cable?

Re: DDPB Installer

Yes the playbook shows up as a drive and how do I reset a password in development mode?

Re: DDPB Installer

I have file sharing and wifi sharing on and the password requirement for that turned off.

All I ever do is enable development mode, enter a password, and then connect to DDPB using scan for the IP and the password set in security.
