Saving to a network drive

Hi all, We are having a small but annoying problem here which I hope one of you can help me with.

Photoshop 7 a user opens a picture from a cd, copys a small section of it and pastes it into a new picture, she then tries to save the new picture on her mapped network drive but gets an error saying that the drive cannot be found. About 11 popups of the same error come where she clicks ok, then the file is saved on her mapped drive anyway.
This only happens when any picture is opened from a cd. She is using w2k. Her mapped drives are fine all the time its just with photoshop.
Any ideas ?

Don't go through the mapped drive route, go through the "My Network Places" to the folder on the server instead. You can see up a shortcut for this.

Also, it's not a good idea to open directly from CD. Copy the file from the CD to the mapped drive first, and try working that way :-)

Hope this helps

Hi, It worked ok, Im just thinking it sort of defeats the purpose a bit, setting up a shortcut on her desktop to a folder thats already mapped as her M: drive, if you get what I mean? :)

I know. I work a lot of 3D Studio Max and have the same problem. Technical support advised me to do what I advised you.
