\\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network\ contains a key for every currently mapped network drive.

example : Drive J is mapped to \\server\share the key would read
\\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network\J
Values inside include path, login name, connection type, etc.

From this it is fairly simple to generate a list of network drives.  It's just a list of all the subkeys under \network\

Just use the GetDriveType function. If it returns 4 it is a network drive.
See Delphi online-help for details.

For better understanding:

if GetDriveType(PChar('R:\')) = 4 then ShowMessage('R:\ is a network drive');
