    Hey Guys

    I'm new here hope you can help!

    So I got a Blackberry Playbook a while ago and would like to be able to upload directly from my memory card to my playbook without having to use another computer.
    I have a card reader (USB) and a wire Micro USB to USB (Female)
    Of course if it was Windows I would just go to My Computer but dont know A: if its possible here or B: Where to go.

    Hope someone can help me! Thanks!

    You cannot do this with the PB. The drivers for USB OTG are not present

    Thanks Matt. That's a shame! So really you need to have another computer/laptop to run the Playbook.

    I find one of these works well enough. Wireless Card Reader for iPhone and iPad : Card Readers : Maplin Electronics. It can be used as an http file server with a direct wifi connection. Sadly usb-otg support was one of the features promised to arrive with OS 10.

    Looks quite interesting. The reviews seem to suggest it would work with the pb but, of course, mention ipad and android devices. Might be faster than using the eye-fi card in my camera.

    It definitely connects. You can basically access it as a wifi access point and web server. You can download single files or select multiple and download as an archive but it is not as a zip but a .tar.gz I think so you would need an unarchive program that handled that to handle bulk transfer. I don't have it with me right now so I will try to check the details and get back to you. I believe it can also act as an smb server so if you have apps (file managers etc) which can handle that it may be easier than using the http route. Will try to take screenshots of device in use.

    I see two different models - which one do you have?

    Thanks in advance
