Go to device manager and uninstall drivers for your playbook and then restart your computer..
Connect your playbook again and it will work this time

hello

 

Thanks for your reply. You mean remove ans reinstall a new version of the desktop manager? If so, I did that and still no results. What do you means by ''drivers''?

 

thanks

Martin

Ohh.. I thought it should work that way....
Try this one

1. Open the Desktop Software, have the device disconnected and turned off.
2. Turn on the device and immediately connect to the USB cable - do not wait for booting or LED

One false move that way and it reinstalls the OS and you lose all your data.  backup first.

But there seems no other option as the device is not communicating with the computer

If you recommend drastic action, you should also recommend backing up first.
