Silly question but do you have an I drive mapped on the mg server?

The second issue with using a network drive is that the process, in this case the IIS user account won't have permissions to network resources. You will have to grant those permissions on the mapped drive.

As to the secondary map approach if the images were all geo-referenced then you wouldn't be viewing the whole map, it would just be a spatial query which would be quick and only return the necessary portion of the images. However since they aren't geo-referenced this won't work.

The scanned aerials I'm trying to reference are not geo-referenced.

What I meant was, along with the scanned aerials I'm trying to reference, I
will also have more recent geo-referenced aerials available with this
mapguide site.

The aerials I'm trying to reference are from 1936-1995.  In all, there's
around 400 GB of aerials I'm making available to view through MG.  Even if I
was able to make them into a map, that map would be so large that it would
take an hour for someone to view.  So it is easier to open individual
scanned images.

I tried adding file:// to the path, but this is the error message I get:
