Do you know what directory or file is causing it, if so then delete it and see if that works. If you don't know which one then see if you can find out by opening each. Aslo check the filenames for any that maybe too long (even for xp) or have odd characters in it that shouldn't be there.

OOps just thought of something else. Check the Volume names of the drives as well and see if you have any folders in the Root directory that might have the same name as the Drive. I've had problems with this in the past.
