    Yes to files,pictures and videos. Games have to be loaded via app store or sideloaded.

    Wrong format - the os will not recognize them as apps/games.

    Games and apps have to sideloaded. There is a forum dedicated to this.
    Files can be " dragged and dropped " via USB cable or wifi file sharing.

    Use the existing get folders on the playbook if you want your tablets apps (video, photo viewer etc) to recognize your files. The standard folders are visible when you connect.

    My Android games are the only ones have to sideload.. My SNES, and Commodore 64 games can be dropped.
    Sent using my PlayBook or my 9930.
