Network Drive Not Mapping

Last response: in Windows XP

I am having a problem mapping a network drive. Here is what I have done...

1: Made sure access was setup correctly. Can navigate to the network folder.
2: Mapped drive by opening a windows folder > Tools > Map Network Drive.
3: Selected desired/available drive letter and network location.


1: Drive shows up in My Computer, but does not have the proper icon that my other mapped drives have.
2: Opening gives me access denied.
3: However I can get to the network location via windows explorer.

Any help is much appreciated.

Can you, as a matter of interest, map it from the command line:

net use \\<server>\<share> t: /user:<username>
for example.

Thanks for the quick response. I had not tried that. I will update my post when I know if it worked.
