Re: My Playbook does not sync with MAC Laptop

As of now the MAC version of the BlackBerry Desktop Software will not recognise the PlayBook. They should release a version that does soon hopefully. For now you can drag and drop files to the PlayBook.

Re: My Playbook does not sync with MAC Laptop

I sync my 1.0.8 PlayBook with my OS X Lion iMac (iTunes) with no problems.  I have the Mac version of Blackberry Desktop at V2.2.1 (build 7).  It also worked fine with 1.0.7.

 

Folder and file access, however, is another matter.

 

I had a problem figuring out dragging and dropping to/from the PlayBook until I discovered that the Finder app on the Mac shows the PlayBook by its name and also as IP address nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn under 'Shared'.  If I double-click on the PlayBook name I get a "Connection Failed" message, but if I double-click on the IP address I get the PlayBook folder list showing Certs and Media.  The Media folder has all the file folders under it.

 

I'm going so search elsewhere on these forums to see whether I did anything wrong.
