OK. i'm assuming that this hard drive is hooked up to a computer (running WinXP) and you can see the files, just can't access (open) them.
also assuming your account on WinXP has administrator privileges.
1st, go to Folder Options (Control Panel) -> View tab, in the Advanced settings make sure Use simple file sharing
2, in My Computer, right click the drive letter of the hard drive you're trying to access -> Properties -> Security tab. under the Group of users names
pane click the Add button and then, in the Enter the object name to select
box enter your username.
now you should be able to access the files.
hope this helps
