    Its been working fine earlier and now it would not connect at all. I keep getting "Unable to charge battery with connected source". I did install the App World web pluggin but deleted it right after thinking that was the cause of the problem but turns out it wasnt. Tried rebooting both PC and Playbook and that didnt help. Any ideas?? Thanks in advance!

    PS: Im on OS2.1.0.840

    Ok I finally got it fixed after fiddling with it for almost an hour.

    If your on Windows heres how:

    1: Connect Playbook to PC (Obviously)
    2: Go to Devices and Printers (on Windows 7 and maybe Vista)
    3: Scroll down and you should see "RIM Network Device" with a yellow triangle on the bottom left of the icon.

    4: Right click and select Troubleshoot (Should have a yellow triangle beside it as well)
    5: Windows should automatically reinstall the currupted drivers.

    Hope this helps

    That's apparently the way 2.1.0.840 works. You won't get the lightning bolt when connected by USB to your PC. While it's still technically charging, the charging rate is very slooooooooow. Does your PC see the PB otherwise?

    For those who is still has this problems. I 've just found an easy way to make the Blackberry Desktop Software connects your playbook.
    My way is open the Services . find the service named Blackberry Device Manager and turn it on.
    Gook luck !!
