    What comp are you using PC or Mac.....??

    If its a Mac, don't sweat it-- it simply won't work... if its a PC, no idea.. someone who uses one might give you suggestions.

    However, the best suggestion would be to just drag-n-drop your files from your comp to the PB... its the sanest way to do it

    EDIT: It does for a chosen few
    Switching of your wifi network does the trick.

    Im using a macbook pro and I just got it to work. Apparently I had to turn off wifi? I had never done that before today and its worked fine every other time.

    Just curious, why do you say that it simply wont work? Ive had numerous blackberrys in the past and every one of them has worked with my macs

    I said that because I have had never been able to sync my PB with my Mac.
    I have used BB for quite sometime, have had success with syncing them to Macs (Powerbooks--to MacBooks), but due to some reason the PB just don't do it.
    I have tried the 'wifi' switch off in the past, it never worked either. Look here, I had posted on the same topic earlier: Unable to locate tablet storage

    I shall edit my prior post then, as you got it to work

    I hate to correct you, but my Playbook wasn't connecting with my Vista machine & I couldn't even get the new Desktop Manager to install. I connected it to my Mac, running OS X not a new Mac by any stretch of the imagination & it worked on the first try.

    Mac computers simply work... I just had to throw that in there since, there is a lot of Apple bashing in the forums for no real good reason... Computers, like people should just learn to get along...

    Thanks!

    Don't worry dude, I don't bash Mac computers..... (please read my earlier post).
    I have never owned a PC only Macs, but in this particular case my PB dosent sync with my Mac.... thats all.
