Cannot find the specified drawing file.

I'm having trouble accessing drawings using Map2 (R14.0h), Windows NT 4sp6
on an NT network. On some drawings on our network, when I pick drawing files
to open, I get the following message:

Cannot find the specified drawing file.
Please verify that the network drive is available and the file exists.

The directories are valid as I pick them from the list, the files exist
because the after re-picking them a second time, they open fine. Something
about our setup causes them to not get recognized. To further complicate it,
it only happens sometimes, seems like it never happens in the main folder I
use, but on about 2/3 of the drawing files in other directories.

Any ideas?

Sounds like some of your drawings are referencing other drawings . If the
drawings were obtained from an external source you may wish to call them for
an explanation of how they used xrefs.

Good thought, but we (as a rule) are not using Xref dwgs.... these are all
stand alone dwgs.
