No picture transfer to laptop

My Playbook at one point did move pics over to my Dell laptop, however, no longer. With self testing it tells me the Playbook only recogizes WIN XP...is it true the WIN 8 that I have is not comptible with BlackBerry Desktop?? Puzzled I am. please help. How do I get the Desktop software to recognize WIN 8?

thanks, SEAVU.

Re: No picture transfer to laptop

Hello Seavu

 

Welcome to http://supportforums.blackberry.com

 

The problem here is Windows 8

That is very inconsistent and has few acknowledgments drives.
Windows 7 has more support and drives.

You can transfer your files from your Laptop via Playbook via wi-fi.

 

Regards.

Re: No picture transfer to laptop

Thanks much...Windows 8 has been a curse in many ways. Dell people tell me they can fix a software issue for $150. then I can move pics from the Playbook to my Dell laptop. I may have to go that route...another call to India..thanks again,
