Windows 7: Choose File To Upload dialog box won't connect

Choose File To Upload dialog box won't connect

I have a mapped network drive that points to a local folder on my computer (z:\). I can open that drive from windows explorer. I can open from the web when I need to save something ("save picture as"). However, when I need to upload something and select that drive, it tells me it can't connect.

Any ideas?

I've bypassed the problem by mapping the drive through subst instead of net use
