Playbook Connection to Computer

I have a 16GB Playbook. When it is connected to the computer, it displays a message that it is connected. When I attempt to synch media, it tells me it can't, and there is a communication error. Based on what I have read on the forum I have: attempted to connect when the wireless is off - makes no difference; gone to the network, where it doesn't show up on My Computer, but is recognized as a local network (Local Area Connection 3, with IPv4 connectivity as local, APv6 as limited, Media state as enabled), and shows up on Network and Sharing as this local network; and ensured that Client for Microsoft Networks is turned on. What am I missing?

What OS are you using on the computer? Did you try deleting the RIM drivers on the pc and reinstall then.

You say it will not sync, but if you open an explorer window in pc documents, and another window in the mapped drive "media" folders in playbook, can you drag n drop?

Re: Playbook Connection to Computer

Good question - although it shows up as a network connection, it doesn't show up as a mapped drive - it doesn't show up in Computer as a drive or a device.
