Try to follow this procedures:

File Sharing with a Windows® PC via USB connection
To share files between a Windows based PC and the BlackBerry PlayBook, BlackBerry Device Manager will need to be installed. Complete the following steps to install BlackBerry Device Manager:
Note: After you connect your tablet via wifi in the network, you can also share files doing this:
I personally have windows 7 in my laptops, and when I need to transfer files using my laptop, I open network and sharing center, then I click on see full map and finally I click on the icon playbook-a185, the next screen will show you 2 folders: certs and media.
Another way is opening windows explorer and on the left under network, see the computers listed on the network, find playbook-a185, click on it and will open the folders.
Note: make sure you have file sharing and wifi sharing ON on the playbook. I turn OFF password protect so will be easier to access your files, and when you are done, you can turn password protection ON.
If you still can't see playbook on the network, open windows explorer and on the left pane, click on network, it will show you the devices connected to it, on the top click on "add a wireless device" after a few seconds should show your tablet under network on the left pane of screen.
DON'T FORGET TO GIVE KUDOS BY CLICKING THE STAR BELOW. THANKS

Yeah I did the standard directions stuff, loaded the driver and such. I can see the files on my USB. I could not via WiFi.
So I had to just use the IP Address to map the network drive. Works now (sorta) LOL

Having enabled wi-fi sharing by static IP on my router, I decided to investigate why the Playbook was visible on windows network but I could not connect straight to it.
The Vista machine sees the Playbook in the network but when clicking to get to share files, the message comes up Windows cannot access \\Playbook. The message adds that there may be a problem with the network and gives an error code of 0x8007003.
The error code indicates that the network path is not found. This behavior occurs if the NetBIOS over TCP IP is not enabled in Windows Vista. Please follow the steps below.
This is done at your own risk!
1. Click "Start", input "NCPA.CPL" (without quotation marks) and press Enter.
2. Right click on the connection that you use for the local connection, and then click "Properties".
3. Click Continue button to verify the administrator permission.
4. Click to select "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)", and then click "Properties".
5. Click "Advanced" button in the open window. On the "WINS" tab, click to select "Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP", and then click "OK" to save the setting.
1) Right click your local connection and select "disable" - wait for it to disable.
2) Once the connection is disabled, right click the local connection again and enable it.
Alternatively reboot your machine.
Give your machine a few seconds to figure out it is back on the network and presto - your network drive will work again. And the Playbook will be acessed via windows as any other networked PC would be!
Hope this helps!
