    Before trying it in IE could you please make sure that following service is started, by going:

    Click Start -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services

    Open the Properties of the WebClient Service

    choose as start type: automatic

    start the service

  • check also that Client integration is enabled for your web app authentication zone: Central administration > Manage web applications > Authentication providers > Enable client integration. And try first does it work in IE.

  • can you add Network location/Map network drive in Windows Explorer to your Sharepoint site?

    Also if you use Windows 7 for the client there may be problem with using WebDAV for non-SSL sites: How to allow webdav connections without https / SSL in Windows 7.
