i found there was a sharing password set on my playbook and i definitely didn't set it. i didn't set a password for the device either. i tried everything I could think of to discover what the sharing password was without success.
In the end I did a security wipe and that removed the password.

On Windows XP, I get "Windows cannot find '\\192.xxx.xxx.xxx'. Check the spelling and try again..." (with my actual IP where the xxx is). What am I doing wrong? Any ideas? I would really like to make this work.
Edit: I figured it out. My ZoneAlarm firewall was blocking it. Now I just have to figure out how to get ZoneAlarm not to block it.

Is there a way to make this work while having a firewall on?
I cant seem to find a way using AVG...
(i also havent really tried that much...)
It works when the firewall is off, but as soon as i turn it on i cant get access

Hey guys, something I just tried and got to work.
This tutorial works great but I created a shortcut to the Media location and renamed it to Playbook on my desktop.
For me, this works better because you can even put it on Taskbar and just clock it while in another program.
Im so excited!

this isn't as easy as some make it out to be... i'm stuck where it asks for username and password... i put the user name as "playbook" but since i never set up a password i don't know it and it won't grant me access. I even tried turning off password protect under storage and sharing and even for that i have to enter a password i never created.

try adding a password to your playbook and then using that.
im not sure about the name part, i dont remember if mine asked that.
Also, mine wouldnt work unless i turned my firewall off.

It would seem that a Security Wipe or Debrick will be necessary to clear any Password you accidentally created or that somehow imposed itself.
If you go into the Security settings and it will not allow you to enter a new password, one must be attached????

Enable file and printer sharing), then use some apps such as ES File Explorer (you will have to sideload it though) to browse on your PB.

Okay, do you have a Password on the pb when it comes out of Standby? That one is set in Options/Security.
Then there's the password for Options/Storage-Sharing for wifi. You have FileSharing ON. You have WifiSharing ON. You have PASSSWORD-Protect?? On or off?
Which one can't you change?
But if you are really locked out, one of the "cleansing" procedures may be necessary. There is no guarantee that it will fix the problem but it might. And yes, both procedures will erase all of your data and your apps. So backup it up (tedious or time-consuming). And restoration will later be just as time-consuming.
When I did the Debrick process, there was a password question to run it. I inputted my standby-password. When the process was complete, that Password was still protecting my device. I was surprised that it was maintained (under OS1). I don't know if that is still the case but I would not input the password and that may clean out any (unless it won't debrick without the password)
