I had to buy a new computer that has Windows Vista. I have the hard drive from my old computer that was Windows XP. I cannot open the folders on this drive. It says I do not have access, prompts to allow access, then goes to a changing security window that either is frozen or is taking forever.

Any ideas?? Am I just screwed. All I want is to transfer my pictures and music from this drive, the I can reformat it for Vista.
