It finally worked for me!
I experienced the same thing. My playbook shows that it is connected to my PC but my PC still shows that I need to connect with my BB device. I downloaded Balckberry Desktop Software on my Windows 7. When I opened the Blackberry Device Manager it cannot detect my playbook. I tried to follow all the suggestions in the forum but none worked. Last night, I went to Documents and looked for my Downloads, I saw the Application named "700_b060_multilanguage" which came with the Blackberry Desktop Software that I downloaded and clicked on it. It installed on my computer and suddenly the device manager detected my playbook. Turns out I missed running one application to complete it. Just try it.

I had the same problems , for connection it is important to have device-mgr 7 installed ,should
be installed in a rim- or blackberry - free environment after first time connection .
Then the usb-connected playbook should appear as network device - quite similar to the
android system where the usb device is shown for connected tablets or phones.
I would recommend to set a login password in the playbook , this is asked for the pc connection.
the whole procedure can take several minutes , I tested this with 3 notebooks - Windows 7 -64bit.
