    Everytime I try to connect my playbook to my computer, it won't connect. I tried to un-install desktop manager and re-install it but no luck. I also tried to connect to my MAC and the same thing. Also thought perhaps it was my cord, but tried 2 other usb cords and no such luck.

    Does anyone else know what I can do?

    Check to make sure that the connector inside the usb port is not bent or slanted. It should be level and offset a bit toward the bottom (non-screen side) of the port.

    You can try using wifi sharing and skip the usb cable.

    I had the same problem with my Playbook not connecting to my PC running Windows 7. The following worked for me:

    On the Playbook
    1. Go to "Settings" (The Wheel in the upper right corner)
    2. Scroll down to "Storage and Sharing"
    3. Under USB Connections select "Connect to Windows" from the drop down box
    4. Verify that File Sharing" is ON

    On the PC running Windows 7
    1. Open the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter by clicking the "Start" button.
    2. Open the "Control Panel".
    3. In the search box, type "troubleshooter".
    4. Click "Troubleshooting".
    5. Under "Hardware and Sound", click "Configure a Device".* Follow the prompts.
    If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
