Problem with security access to files on 2nd HD after installing windo

I recently installed windows 7, and pervious to that I had my windows XP.
I have 2 HDs and the second one is where I put most of my files.

So i tried to open one my my pictures, and found a message saying:
"Windows photo viewer can't open this picture because you don't have the correct permissions to access the file location."
When I try to open some of the folder a pop-up message comes up saying:
"You don't currently have permissions to access this folder: click continue to permenentaly get access to this folder".
After continue another message pops-up:
"You have been denied access to this folder".

So I've tried to change the security prefrences to the HD using the security tab in the HD properties, but every time I try and change something, a pop-up message comes up for each file in the HD saying: "access is denied".
I can't change any of the security preperties.

I've tried to uninstall the drive in device manager and reset, didn't work.

I tried to change a sub-sub-folder security properties and I can play the music files that are in this directory.
But there are still many directories that when I try to change their owner pop up a message Access is Denied.

Any solutions? Thanks in advanced.
