Re: SYNC PHOTOS FROM BLACKBERRY TABLET TO LAPTOP

The best way I find for transferring photos and music is to do it through Windows Explorer. I have XP Pro and when I go into Explorer it shows the PlayBook as a Drive. When I click on Media, it opens and shows all the media directories. All your PlayBook pictures are in the camera directory. You just drag them from the PlayBook to a directory on your computer. I think it is faster and safer.
When you connect via Desktop Manager you have to be careful. Sometimes the DM will tell you an upgrade is available and before you know what is going on, it is updating the OS resulting in the loss of all your pictures and music as well as all other files. So be very careful when using it. This is why I prefer using the drag method to move my media.
