Client for Microsoft Networks protocol is missing in the local area connection properties
Open the Windows Control Panel
Open Network Connections
right click on RIM Local Area Connection & choose Properties
Use the General Tab, See if Client for Microsoft Networks is present
If not, choose Install
Choose Client and then Add
Choose Client for MicroSoft Networks from the list
Once install is complete, verify that it is present & checked
Disconnect & Reconnect the Playbook
ALSO - Services: make sure TCP/IP Net Bios Helper is started...

I can't assign a drive to a drive that doesn't show, here's a screenie of my diskmanagement WITH playbook AND my ipod plugged in (to show it recognizes ipod, not pbk. And no I haven't left my ipod in this whole time, so it is not the problem )

OK, maybe this will help. Check out the four screen shots under device mgr. I've got my PB32 connected via USB. It will NOT show up as a USB device, but as a NETWORK adapter. My driver version is 126.96.36.199 as you can see in the attachment. I would suggest deleting this device and driver, reboot the computer, then reconnect and see if the driver reloads.
When I hooked up the PB, the driver assigned it drive letter Z, which would have conflicted with a network drive had I been on VPN today. The 3rd screen shot shows the BB Device Mgr properties of my PB.
What are your settings in BB Device MgrBB Device Mgr options? Is the "mount tablet volumes on connect" selected?

Also, see the attached screenshot. It shows that the PB is an unidentifed network, "local area connection 3". I've got the properties off to the side. Hope this helps.
This is smelling more and more like a network issue on the local PC.
OK, something else has my interest. That's yer DAD'S wallpaper on your DAD's PC? Shouldn't he be setting an example for the rest of us?

Two things helped me: 1) make sure your WiFi is turned OFF. 2) make sure you have pushed the USB cable all the way into the slot on the PlayBook; on new ones, (like mine), I had to push further than I liked to ensure that it was all the way in. 3) Try a hard reboot - that helped as well. Good Luck.
Thanks again for your patience man.
Oh and that's MY laptop background.. my dads' pc background is of himself, lol
EDIT: I delete the RIM driver, rebooted and when I plugged in my pbk, I got the notification it was installing new drivers and they were SUCCESSFUL (as every time before hand was unsuccessful)! I was so happy until I realized that my laptop STILL is NOT recognizing/mounting the drive so I can access it ;_;
I know my laptop is trolling me somehow, IT ACTUALLY SHOWS A CONNECTION but obviously declines it's existance.
Diagnostics show.. that it doesn't exist. Yet you can see it in the background.

Now that it look like the PB is recognized, go back to the zebek solution posted earlier:
"Step 5 was what fixed it for me.
On windows 7 Pro version the steps are a little different so here is what I did.
-go to control panel>network and sharing center then on the left side you should have an option for "change adapter settings"- click on it
You should then see your network connections, with any luck one will say "local area connection 2, unidentified network, Research In Motion Network device" right click on it and go to properties.
then like step 5 above put a check on
"client for Microsoft networks"
"File and printer sharing for microsoft networks"
"internet protocol Version 4 (tcp/ipv4)
Hit ok, wait 2min and see if anything starts installing if it doesnt disconnect your playbook wait a few and then plug it back in. you should now see that its installing more stuff and adds a Z drive under my computer, network."
I bet you will be loading files by the end of the night! This tabby shall rise!

Here was the original step 5 from zebek:
You can now close Device Manager.
Step 5 – Click on the Start menu and open the Control Panel. Double Click on Network Connections. Under the LAN or High-Speed Internet section, you should see a Local Area Connection beside the Research In Motion Network Device, right-click on this Local Area Connection and click on Properties. Click on the General Tab and put check marks beside Client for Microsoft Networks, File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). Click on OK and close Network Connections. Blackberry Desktop Software should now recognize the Blackberry Playbook and you should receive a pop up showing that Blackberry Device Manager is initializing storage volume access. You can now use Desktop Software to synchronize your Playbook and media, and open the Playbook as a Mass Storage device under a Mapped Network Drive.
Guys, first off, THANK YOU for ALL your help! Especially you jcbrunson!!
But you guys won't believe it. I tried everything you just mentioned ^, again to no avail. So I was just browsing properties of everything, and decided to check Computer. And... well, PLAYBOOK IS ACCESSIBLE. My first reaction was "wtf? I didn't do anything yet." And it's true, the only thing I changed was in the RIM LAN connection properties, I clicked Sharing and selected "Allow other Network users to connect through this computers internet connection" and selected the LAN2 network.
No new notifications popped up, no usb sound, nothing. I just happened to check Computer (which I have always been doing, just in case) and playbook just.. appeared. I don't know what to say, other than sorry for wasting all your guys time and THANK YOU!! <3
