Cygwin Git can't Sync File Based Repository

For example, I have a repository that looks like this

[gffurash ~/Documents/Projects/wo219161] $ git remote -v
origin  file://v:/GitSrcCtrl/wo219161 (fetch)
origin  file://v:/GitSrcCtrl/wo219161 (push)

it syncs w/ the remote destination in windows

If I sync from Git Bash (downloaded from the git site) it works fine. If I
sync from Cygwin GIT, I get the following

fatal: '/GitSrcCtrl/wo219161' does not appear to be a git repository
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository
Trying to create the repository from Cygwin doesn't work either.

[gffurash ~/Downloads] $ git clone /cygdrive/v/GitSrcCtrl/wo219161/
Cloning into 'wo219161'...
[gffurash ~/Downloads] $ touch a
[gffurash ~/Downloads] $ git add .
fatal: Not a git repository (or any parent up to mount point /cygdrive)
Stopping at filesystem boundary (GIT_DISCOVERY_ACROSS_FILESYSTEM not set).
