I have a group policy that maps drives "User Configuration\preferences\Windows Settings\Map drives".  I have the map drive policy attached to a organizational unit that has just user part of a group.  I have secuirty filtering set on the drive to only apply it to that group.  I have the mapped drive setup to create, reconnect, item level targetting, to that group as primary.  When the user logs on she is not getting the mapped drive.

Have you ran RSOP? What are the clients running?

What OS is the user on? XP? Win7?

If XP have you installed Group Policy Client Side Extensions?

This is needed for XP clients to connect to mapped drives like you are doing
