The message indicates an access issue.  Are you actually putting the share there or just the IP address?

Does this work on any machine?

 

Are ports 445 and 139 open on the server?

Mapping drives only gives the direct location and access to the drive. It doesn't make all the folders within it automatically shared with whoever has access to that drive. Make sure that all the folders are also shared. Right-click on that folder and look for options to share it.
