    Guys, thanks for your help but I am giving up. I just can't see my way past the PB's inability to connect to the EF wi-fi. Shame. I'm sending it back.

    After my last post I reformatted my EF card ready to return it and – fool that I am – thought I’d give it one (actually about the 20th) last go. Would you believe it, I actually got it going! It worked! I thought I owed it to all the folk at Crackberry, and especially to you guys who tried to help me, to document exactly how I got there. These step-by-step instructions grew and grew and took a lot longer than anticipated. With my holiday coming up (the ONLY reason for buying the EF card) I had to stop and reckoned it could wait until my return.

    So, I went on holiday, took a few pictures, switched everything on and – yippee! – saw the upload process taking place.

    ONE PHOTO! Yep, that was the total sum of my transfers! No matter what I did, it would do no more. Oh, except I did try again several days later and it started to load a couple of movie files. But I hadn’t set it up to load movies and after several minutes of exertion – NOTHING!

    Even I had to laugh. All those hours spent trying to get that expensive little gadget to work followed by false hope and total failure. Oh no, not total failure - after all I did get ONE photo onto the Playbook.

    BTW, my friend across the road says she never got her EF card to work, either. You won’t be surprised to hear I have now finally returned it for a refund.

    Thanks for returning to explain your experiences. Sorry it did not work out as intended but that you got your money back. I wonder if real Android devices have better luck or if this "technology" is still in its formative stage. USB-to-go would be so much more direct but alas that will not happen.
