Local Disk(D:) is not accessible
Access is denied
D: is not accessible, It says "D: is not accessible, Access Denied".
My disc is not a Samsung it is actually a Maxtor, anyway it was in a computer running Vista not sure now which version, That machine died I bought a new computer running Vista Home Premium. I can see the disc in disc Management it says that it is online and healthy, I can also see it in Device manager, but when I try to access it I get the message G: is not accessible access denied Anybody have any clues how to fix this please
Hope I can help you with your problem. If your hard drive was installed to be used as D: in your old computer then you will have to set it up to be D: in the new computer. This may be why it is not being recognized. You can do this by connecting it as a slave on the primary IDE cable.
Also you will need to check the jumper on the hard drive to make sure it is set in the slave position.

I recently had this problem. Whenever I clicked on any of the drives a window appeared with warning which said drive not accessible. Access is denied. Previously I thought that it is a virus which has edited my registry and is not allowing me to enter or even view my content. So I formatted the whole system but that didn't help. Now I am sharing this with you.
Open My Computer. Goto Tools>Options. Goto View Tab Pane. Uncheck the last Option in the Advanced Setting which says Use simple file sharing(Recommended). Apply the setting.
Open the properties window of the drive you are unable to access.Goto Security tab pane.
Now click on the Owner tab pane.
It's very rare that the ownership of the drive changes. But it happens once in a while.
So if you are the user say Admin then select Admin(ComputerName\Administrator).
Click on the box which says Replace owner on subcontainers and objects and click over Ok.
Well this message can be two things(if not more) One of them being that the disk has security set and you wil need to change those settings if you want access to the drive the other scenario being that a program has locked the disk for exclusive access.
Assuming you are using Windows XP.
To check the security go to the properties of the disk then click on security(Tf the security tab isn't there, Open my computer then click Tools->Folder Options then the View Tab. Scroll to the bottom/last option then uncheck Use Simple File-Sharing press OK/Apply)
Now back to Properties of the disk then Click the security tab.
You'll need to try this first and tell me what's there, or if u got any error message etc. My explanation might be to long if i try to explain every possibility.
