Re: Transfer/Copy files to Playbook

You can create new folder and edit files by connecting your PB with laptop/PC. Another option would be using file manager application like, File & Folders etc. These are paid app and available in BlackBerry App World.

Re: Transfer/Copy files to Playbook

Thanks for your response.

Somehow I am not able to access files or copy them to my PlayBook through the BB desktop manager.

Can you elaborate a bit further?

When the pb is connected look in the Windows explorer. And you will see it as as drive. Go under media and you can copy and paste.

You can also use "Jiggle" to copy files to/from Desktop-PlayBook-Android tablets.

Re: Transfer/Copy files to Playbook

I like the advice here, but for some reason, after connecting to BB Desktop, I am not able to access the PB..  Comes up with a message Unknown User or Bad Password. 

Admittedly, I have put a password on my PB, but entered it when the DT attached. 

Will disconnect and reconnect and see what happens..
