Do you have the appropriate permissions (on the physical system that the mapped drive resides on) to use the mapped drive? Is this a workgroup or a domain?
Try making a new account with the exact name and password of an administrator account from the other machine (the one that the mapped drive is on). Then reboot your computer, log into the new account and see if you can access the mapped drive normally.
In workgroups this is called account mirroring - and what it does is lets you use the permissions of an administrator when accessing the mapped drive. In most cases (on a workgroup) you're working with the level of permissions that the Guest account has - so this trick will allow you to see if that's the probem.
