Sharepoint Drive Mapping - user has to enter login credentials when opening file

Hello everyone,

Here is what I have and I am hoping you can help!  We have a new sharepoint installation.  I have created drive mappings to document libraries which map fine, no issues.  My problem is, when the user tries to open up a doc in the document library it prompts for a username and password.

They already authenticated by mapping the drive, plus the person they are logged in as on the computer is the same account with access to the document library.  Any help would be appreciated!!!!
