Are there any other drives mapped (manually or via GPO)?  Make sure the drive letters are not already taken/assigned.

Is there any other GPO being applied to the same computer and do they work?

Is the user admin on the Win 7 workstation? Then try turning off UAC (User Account Control).

Hi Wayne88 and mpfister, thank you for your response I have figured out the issue. I assigned the GPO to the computer OU's was not working. I assigned to the user OU's and the GPO works fine, again thank you for your response.
