    Files can be moved from one to the other using a LAN file transfer app/utility called Dukto. Large files are very slow to transfer but it can be done. Unfortunately, it it very difficult to find the Dukto app for the PlayBook but I have a copy. Look in BBW for the BB10 version and put that on your BB10 device. If you cannot find the PlayBook app I can email it to you if you PM me to give me an email address. There are probably other apps that will do the same and maybe others can chime in here with wifi transfer sharing methods.

    Yeah I never got why the LAN transfer speeds were so slow on the PlayBook.... generally I was moving files between a PC and the PlayBook, without any app.

    It's been so long... but was there a file size limit with BlackBerry Bridge?

    I really don't know -- never actually used Bridge since I never had a BB phone at that time. Dukto works great for small files and it will work for any size but I remember transferring video files (500 Mb or so) and it would take about 10 minutes or more. It's slow just because of the hardware limitation (ancient afterall). Bluetooth, of course, is out of the question since the BT module is primitive in the PlayBook.

    Just use the built-in smb file sharing feature that already exists in the Playbook and in the BB10 device. An app like GhostCommander will allow you to push or pull the files between the Playbook and BB10 device if they are both on the same wifi.

    On the BB10 device:
    > Settings
    > Storage and Access
    > Access Using Wifi

    Same sort of idea on the Playbook side.

    In GhostCommander, go to Windows/SMB/FileShare in one of the panels. You'll need to know the IP address of the other device and also use the appropriate Username and Password.

    On my commander I have fields but there's no such thing as sfs or simple file sharing. it its all got is domain and some under fields like username and password. That's when choosing windows from the menu.

    Do you mean on the BB10 device or on the Playbook?

    On the BB10 device, open GhostCommander. Then pick the left or the right panel and select "Windows Share". Then enter the Playbook's IP address in the Server field, and the username as defined in the Playbook's wifi access setup. Ignore Domain.

    OK. On the PlayBook after filling in the fields it finds the smartphone but when I try to select either the SD card or the main hard drive it just keeps asking for an username and password repeatedly. And when I try to retype it again it just does nothing. Just sits there.

    If you cannot get connected this way I can send you the Dukto .bar by email but you will have to PM me with a email address. Much easier provided that you know how to sideload an app.

    No, not wifi username and password. Use the username and password that you setup when you turned on the "access by wifi" in the device settings.

    Worked. I have kept typing in a wrong password. If someone like me tells you something just doesn't work for him despite it works for everyone else don't even b other.

    Other than that this Wi-Fi sharing is painfully slow 165 kb/s.

    Yes, it's ok for small text,pdf,jpeg etc but brutal for anything large.

    It's probably actually GhostCommander that's making it slow. When I do it from a desktop share to a BB10 device or to a Playbook it is rather fast. You can also try other file managers. There are at least a few that are decent and some that are a lot more GUI friendly than GhostCommander.

    As indicated in the other post, it's not for everyone. Lots of people prefer to just use apps like Duko. I prefer using the built in file sharing. Less reliance on third-parties (kind of).

    Well, there's a ting called es Explorer. A file manager utility available for the PlayBook but it's now missing from bb world for both the PlayBook and the bb10.

    People say it worked pretty well for them. But since no longer there a person has to ask around the forum to see if somebody here still has a copy.

    I guess Dukto will work fine once I get around the initial set up on the PlayBook. Thankfully won't have to convert it.

    Yes, that one is relatively nice. I am sure someone in here has a .bar file for it. It used to also be available from the GoodEReader site.

    Yes, good e-reader looks good from what I have seen so far.

    I have something else to ask for here. After spending considerable time I managed to install that Dukto bar on the tablet. That thing sachesi was giving me all sorts of problems.

    If someone can explain to me how to connect the two devices in order to move small files over the radio will be nice.

    On both the PlayBook and the bb10 I can't get past the initial setup. I mean I don't have a clue what to do.

    Not sure what Stoyanov has done but the process is extremely simple. Install Dukto on Windows, BB10, Linux, Android, iOS etc then install Dukto on PlayBook (you have to sideload it), open each app or program. on the device WITH the files you want to transfer tap the type of file you want, search, find and select then tap transfer. You will notice on the other device (PlayBook, for instance), the file transfer bar moves across the app until done. It's VERY simple. No ip address settings or anything to monkey with.
