Hi im a 15 year old teenager so bear with me! i have recently took my old hard drive from my old pc and installed it as a slave drive on my new pc. My aim was to get all my old files such as music, word files ect.. off of it. but wen i want to access documents and settings off of it it says access is deniend this works for all the other accounts but allows me to go into shared documents and settings. Please could u explain this to me as simple as possible thanks replys would be appreciated.

are you trying to run it as a single drive or slaved to another drive
if it is slaved you set the jumper to the slave position
if it is the only drive run it as master,but you will have to do a repair install before it will operate and then run the m/b setup disk to install the m/b drivers
