Cannot paste on mapped drive sometimes

    I've got this problem where I cannot paste to a mapped drive on another machine. Once I reboot the machine I map to, I can paste documents but then it suddenly won't let me again and the 'paste' button is greyed out. I've got write access to the file I need to paste into. I can tell when I remotely connect to it whether it will let me or not as the desktop sometimes takes a while to appear. When it appears straight away, I can paste to it.
    It's really frustrating! The pc is running Windows 2000 servicepack 4.
    Any ideas or suggestions greatly appreciated.
