Yeah what you are describing, to my knowledge is normal.  You can only map a truly shared drive using the method you described.  Since the subfolders are not a true share, then they can't be mapped in that fashion with Windows 7.

What you need to do is right click Computer and click on Map Network Drive.  Then browse to that sub folder.  That will map it for you.

Another way is to go into Computer so you can see all of your drives, hit the alt button to make the menu appear, click Tools and then Map Network Drive.
