Re: downloading movies

You don't want to use Torrent sites.  Many of them are full of spyware and viruses.  Also, even if you get it to work, the movie studios track usage on these sites and will send threatening letters to you and your ISP.  Also, it's illegal.  If you want to make backup copies of your own movies, use any of the tools from Slysoft.com.  They are wonderful.  Once you buy and register them, you're entitled to upgrades for life.


I don't know why another poster said you had to install Blackberry Desktop software to transfer movies.  All you have to do is connect the Playbook to your computer and it will show up as a memory storage device (like a flash drive).  All you have to do is drag/drop the files between the devices.
