If you open cmd and type

Net use M:  \\server\share

Whereby you specify the server and the share as you have created it, what happens? Do you get an error message?

Once a drive is mapped your software should treat it as a local drive. I can only assume that there is either a configuration issue with your share or a permission issue as the case may be.
