BESR - destination network drive "is a read-only location and not a valid destination"

I've recently attached a network drive onto an SBS 2003 network and everything is working fine.

However, any attempt to connect BESR 8.55 or Ghost 15 to the new drive ends in the above error.

I've found loads of cases of people having the same problem when using Ghost or BESR with a network drive rather than a USB one, the latter requiring no credentials which the NAS does.
Unfortunately, I could find any resolved cases.

Any ideas?

This is a Freecom problem. The drives come preformatted as FAT32, so you are dealing with 4GB limits, etc.
If you browse to the UNC does it prompt for credentials, if you enter and save them does it work? Does the NAS support AD credentials?

I have to enter the credentials anyway and it accepts them, then comes up with the error msg.
