I am running windows 7 and when I plug in my Playbook, the drivers fro m playbook will not install. I can get the USB driver so that it will recognize that the play book is connected but I cannot see any files or sync. I have another PC running XP and it connects no problem. Also I have a BB Torch and in Windows 7 it does load all the drivers and connect with no issues. I can see the RIM driver listed in my Control panel as a heading but under properties it states no driver install and cannot update.

When a small tablet like the PB is attached to the PC with a usb cable it can accidentally be knocked off the table and the usb cable could be yanked causing damage to the connector on the PB which may not be coverd under the warranty since it is damaged caused by the user and not a manufacturing defect.
I connect my PB to my PC via WiFi and have no difficulty transferring movie files over my WirelessN WiFi so the speed is not too slow to be an issue but at least I don't risk any damage to the usb port.
The PB is a mobile device and capable of WiFi connectivity so why not take advantage of it?
Here is the link to my post on setting up the WiFi connection:
