I have just managed to do it with one of our SharePoint sites.

With the site in List mode, use the Actions button to show a dropdown, from where you can select "Open in Windows Explorer". You can then copy the address from the address bar and paste into the Map Network drive option.

Alternatively, you can add the network location to your favourites.

As above, open the SharePoint site in Windows Explorer. In the left hand pane, right click on Favourites and select "Add Current location".

Thanks to both contributors, much appreciated.
I tried to map the location, however after it asks me for credentials and I put in the correct credentials, it does not allow me in.
According to the instructions in the pop up it says that I should select the option to login automatically, however it is not there.
Any other suggestions?

I simplified the link and then ensured that the Shared Documents to the folder I wanted was included.
I added the link to trusted sites.
Tried mapping the drive and it worked.
Your suggestions helped me to achieve what I was looking for.
Thank you.
