When I plug/ in my playbook with the USB, the computer doesnt find the hard drive of the Playbook. I went to 'My Computer' and its not there... I went ot the blackberry device manager and it does find my Playbook but whenever I try to open the volume Z it says location is not available.

UPDATE YOUR PROFILE
Three methods :
Prerequisites : Enable file/wifi sharing in settings/ storage and share
Look into Settings/About in the Network (dropdown) your IP address.
On your desktop, type it (with http:// before) in a browser window (or just type it in Start/"find" for windows computers)
2. Mounted drive with Device manager (embedded in Desktop Manager)
When you plug your PB, the device manager should start (notification icon = small grey computer), ask for PW (if any) and then state that a drive has been mounted.
=> IF OS 2.0 + you'll probably have to install new drivers for the PB. Un-installing then re-installing the Desktop Manager (use latest version : BlackBerry - BlackBerry Desktop Software - BlackBerry Software at BlackBerry.com) can help.
3. With latest DM version (not sure for macs), you have now a simple drag and drop interface to easily manage files.
Use the one you prefer !
P.S: #1 offers the ability to mount a network permanent drive (if your PB is in wifi range and your PC on the same network).
Hope it helps

I have the same problem on my win 7 laptop. It started several weeks ago. No idea why. Also unable to backup, read files, etc. Works alright on my old win vista laptop. Unfortunately, I don't have the hard drive space on it to backup my 64 gig PB.
