Re: My Playbook does not sync with my desktop

If you have a wifi router and you don't mind manually transferring files try wifi sharing.

File sharing is quicker and more reliable than sync, and more reliable than backup/restore

Re: My Playbook does not sync with my desktop

I have the same issue since updating the desktop software. Synced yesterday before updating, now I am able to backup the playbook but cannot synch music or video - So the playbook is being recognized but no access to the drives.

 

Anyone?

Re: My Playbook does not sync with my desktop

Oh - and wifi sharing does not work either - my windows machine does not recognize the IP address of the playbook.

 

I am a power user and had the playbook since it was launched and never had this problem,. I have deleted desktop software and reinstalled and I have restarted the playbook a couple of times with no luck.

 

Suggestions?

Re: My Playbook does not sync with my desktop

and an update...no sooner had I posted that wifi was not working than it found the playbook. So transfer via wifi is ok - transfer via USB fails.

Re: My Playbook does not sync with my desktop
