Mapped Drive not reconnecting at Startup

  JNKScot 12:17 25 May 2007

I have a 500 Gb LaCie Ethernet Disk mini networked to my PC (Windows XP Home SP2 - Netgear DG834 modem/wired router) & mapped to a P: drive with reconnect at logon selected.

Works perfectly but after a shutdown or reboot an error comes up saying that the drive is not connected & recommending that I open the My Computer folder. On doing this the mapped drive is visible (the icon not even showing it as disconnected); double clicking brings up the LaCie input screen and, after entering the password, all is OK once more until the next time.

When mapping the drive I selected "Log in as a different user" & entered the drive's details plus the password but Windows doesn't seem to be retaining this data.

Is there something I'm missing?

Works fine after following the instructions in the .cmd file and making sure the "Reconnect at logon" box is unticked in "Map Network Drive"
