Maintaining AMA linked footage between Mac and PC edit stations

Hi all,
I am having trouble maintaining a workflow where AMA linked footage is being shared between Mac edit stations and the PC suite. The most basic problem I can see is that the PC has to designate a drive letter to network volume that is required. Could anyone help me maintain AMA links between Mac and PC?

The AMA footage is not on ISIS storage. It is on our raw media Synology storage.
Mac OS X 10.11.6 El Capitan - Avid MC v8.6.5
PC Windows 10 - Avid MC v8.6.5

Thanks

I recommend AGAINST working with only AMA footage. If it's in a codec Avid works with (XDCAM, DNxHD, ProRes) I suggest CONSOLIDATING...that way it's in the Avid folder structure that allows it to be tracked VERY well in Avid. If not, transcode it, and it'll also be in that folder structure.

Editing AMA only should be VERY limited, and really only done if using one machine, and short projects.
