delay in browsing mapped drive

Hello... i have another question...
I have a mapped drive that points to a shared folder on one of my servers.
I noticed that for me it takes about 30secons when I click on the drive for the contents to come up (all the folders in that shared drive) ... for others when they click on the mapped drive it takes about a second or two... why is it that for some users the contents come up right away and others it takes 30sec to a minute....  

I do have an active directory environment. my workstations are xp and sharing server is 2k8.

On teh machine where the user is having a problem, does it affect just this user, or all users on this box? Can an affected user go to another machine and work ok?

If it is machine based, I would be curious to check the following....

Network Connectivity but can not browse network folders

Check out the second comment. I would be curious to see that the Connections/Providers are in the right order.....

hey Johnb6767... its not just one workstation its a few of them....  
so its just not user specific.....

for example... I have user-x and machineA and machineB.
If I log in user-x on machineA it takes about 45mins before all the shared sub-folders show up in the shared folder. If I login the same user in machineB, its all there right away.
