Disconnected Network drive, can only manually browse

So we've got several folders shared across our AD server environment. Very sporratically mapped network drives to shared locations will respond as a disconnected drive when trying to double click the mapped drive name, however I can manually browse to that share by putting in \\<folder path> in the address bar. Any thoughts?
