Unmappable network drive

I have an XP workstation that is showing a mapped drive U:, mapped to a known share.  It shows itself in a disconnected state, yet can be opened to show the shared folders.  If I try to disconnect the drive, it says it doesn't exist.  If I look at mapped drives and/or shares, it doesn't exist.  How can I delete this drive?

Sounds wierd, but have you tried to do this from the command prompt?

"net use u: /delete"

Also check your diskmanager. Maybe you have some external drive, like a memory or similar. Does your printer have something such? or do you have a digital camera with removable memory?
