As Leslie mentioned are you running paradox under elevated permissions, 
as admin or another user?
So I assume you see no drives when you try to  open a form or some 
paradox type from within paradox?  If so you most likely are running 
some sort of elevated permissions.  There are ways around this.  I can't 
recall now what but it involves changing some settings in Windows to 
allow the elevated user to see the drives mapped by another user. -- or 
maybe it is a way to make mapped drives from the make the elevated users 
mapped drive persistent... can't recall.  I found the solution searching 
the web.
Also if you use UNC paths this isn't an issue. \\Myhost\\somepath 
instead of mapped drives.
