Cannot open text file on mapped CD-ROM

 Cannot open text file on mapped CD-ROM

I am attempting to open a huge (150mb) text file on a CD-ROM for read
access. The line of code I am using is:

      Open DataFile For Random Access Read As #1 Len = 1

where DataFile is a variable containing a validated filename. This works
fine on the CD-ROM on my local machine, but when I map a network CD-ROM, I
get "File/Path access error" and it won't open it.

Does anyone know the secret handshake for this?
