Default Playbook Folders on Transfers

Please Login to Remove!

I am testing out transferring files from PC to Playbook. I was able to transfer a music file to the Music folder and a picture to the Picture folder. However there are other folders such as "Books" "Documents" "Misc" and I cannot see how they are accessed on the PB. How do I find them once I have moved something there?

I transfer documents to and from the PB all the time. If you use MS Office tools, or OpenOffice and MS formats the PlayBook documents to go will work with them.

Unfortunately the Kobo book reader doesn't play well with others. You can't find any books you download from them, not can it find ePub books dropped into the Books folder. Major fail in my opinion. But if you are going to read books there are better options than the PB anyway. Or if you really want to read on the PB I hear the Kindle cloud reader works.

I had no trouble with books downloaded from Kobo. They were in the library of the Kobo App. It is only when trying to do a transfer. I guess I am too conditioned to looking in folders and sub-folders on my PC when the only way to find things on the PB is by starting an App.
