File won't open

Hi,

I transfered a file from my PC to my Playbook.  It did just fine, however, I can't open the file

in the Playbook.  Is there a certain file type that I have to use in order to open it? 

Thanks!  (:

Yes exactly, you need to transfer playbook compatible files such as .mp3 for music .avi .mp4 for videos and .jpg for wallpapers and photos
