are they really not there, or is it that you just can't write to them?

I had a similar issue recently, turned out it was my own stupidity.. I 
shared C, made the mapped drives, but kept getting various "can't write to 
mapped drive" errors, from all programs, and from explorer.. I forgot to 
give the shared C the "full rights" needed

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.
