Desktop software 7.1

Is it necessary to download desktop software 7.1 on a PC in order to transfers and/or sync files from a PC onto a BB Playbook?

 

Is it necessary to use HDMI cable to transfer/sync movies, videos and songs from a PC to a BB Playbook, or USB cable and WI Fi transfer/sync is just as good?

Re: Desktop software 7.1

If you want incrementsl sync, yes need desktop softwsre.  To drag and drop, wifi sharing does not need software. 

 

That includes movies.

That is very simple.

Most transfers can be done either with USB cable or through Wi Fi connection.

 

When specifically HTMI cable, and only HTMI,  has to be used?

HTMI is used for viewing your PlayBook onto a TV.

Re: Desktop software 7.1

Is that the only purpose of HDMI cable?
