This solution is to shareware which can retask a drive - not exactly a perfect solution.  In my case a tech had stored a file named 'autorun.inf' at the root of the share where the drive was mapping and Windows was having trouble figuring out what kind of drive it was.  Moved the autorun file and it resolved the problem.
