Re: computer doesn't recognize my BB Playbook

I just resolved mine with this method:
1. Go to settings
2. In the File sharing, enable all what you see there.
3. Disable your antivirus protection and firewall ( you can reconnect them after you have done with what you are doing with your tablet)
4.Open your desktop manager and connect your tablet..

I am sure your computer would see the bb playbook.
