-Can you access the drive on the server using the Explorer's Folders treeview?
-Can you access the drive from the command prompt?
-Check for a file named autorun.inf in the root of the drive. If there is one delete it. Autorun.inf contains command to run when a drive is opened locally by double-clicking and normally it is not used with hard drives.
