USB port

I have recently bought a magnetic charger because my USB port is not working, this works fine to charge my playbook but is there any way I can save/transfer my video's,photo's etc.

Re: USB port

Hey cobble3,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Thanks for the question.


A USB data cable will be required to backup or data transfer with the BlackBerry PlayBook and your PC/Mac.  With the new charger cord, does it detect the BlackBerry PlayBook when connected to the computer?


You do have the option of Wi-Fi sharing as well, follow the steps in this KB article: www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB26068


I look forward to your reply.
