trouble mapping network drive

I am trying to map a shared drive to a users computer. I have never seen it before where I get the error I am going to describe and could use a hand.

Its running Win XP, and I go through the process of opening MY Computer, Tools, Map Network Drive. I type in the name of the drive, lets call it driveA with share X

So I map \\driveA\X I get Access Denied.

BUT I can map it to my subfolder on drive X no problem, and I can map the main drive in my network places as well. Any thoughts?

Windows update fixed it. Not sure why I did not think of this b4. Thanks for suggestion though.

Open a command prompt and type NET USE Z: \\ip_address_of_driveA\X and enter

What error do you get?
