Drag and drop

Hello,

 

I transferred several contacts from Outlook on my PC onto PB/Network Drive with a simple drag and drop technique. I put them in Documents folder of BB PB on my PC, but I cannot find them on BB PB. They are neither in Docs nor File Manager folders.

Is it possible to transfer contacts this way, or I need Software 7.1 for PC?

What type of documents are you transfering to the Playbook, the file manager of the Playbook is very limited as to the type of file it can see, I would strongly suggest that you use another file manager for the Playbook, AirBrowser (free) is very good, and there are other that are payware available in the AppWorld

Re: Drag and drop

I don't think you can drag and drop from Outlook. If you want your outlook contacts transferred, there is a utility in Outlook that you must use. However you can synch Outlook with Messages on the PlayBook and the contacts will transfer over.

Thank you for your reply. I will download AirBrowser.
