Re: How to transfer files to and from the BB PlayBook

I have windows 7 on my laptops, i just noticed that in one laptop when the tablet is connected to the network via wifi, one of them shows the playbook-A185 under network, but the other laptop did not show the device, so what i did is:

  1. Click start on your laptop
  2. click on control panel
  3. click on network and internet
  4. click on view network computer and devices
  5. on the top of that screen click on add a wireless device
  6. another screen opens up, wait like a couple of minutes (make sure your tablet is engaged to the wifi network)
  7. the tablet will apear under network ( not on the above screen, which says searching for devices...) make sure you check under network after a while.

That procedure fixed the issue on my other laptop.

FYI, search box is on the top-right side of the screen, not on the left.

Hello you can go to URL bar and put \\ plus the IP of the PlayBook plus (a.i. \\192.145.124.1) and then enter.

the PlayBook IP address you can find it on settings option/about/network


hope this works

Re: How to transfer files to and from the BB PlayBook

I never set a password in Storage and Settings yet it says "Password Protect" is on. I try to deactivate it and it asks for a password I never gave it.

 

What can I do?
