You may need to add yourself to a security group.Sometimes ,even an administrator may be denied access to a group,if she/he is not a member of that group. I had a similar situation myself a few months ago with Windows Vista,and it works the same in all operating systems,Vista, XP,Linux,MAC.

Why can't I access any of the files on my WD Elements external hard drive?


If you have not reinstalled a new OS the drive should be seen after starting your unit.

Disconnect the USB drive and reboot your unit.

After the unit comes up, plug in the drive.

If the drive is new to the system, it will locate and load drivers.

Afterwards it should give the opium to view files.
It should also be seen in your device manager, under disk drive.

You should be able to go to prosperity's and see sharing opium's ect. ( Security ) Try to make your changes here

Access Denied Error on external hardrive


You don't have rights to the folder. Right click the folder --> Select Properties --> Security --> Advanced --> Owner and then change the owner to your user. Here are some instructions from Microsoft for taking ownership. Once you own the folder then you can do whatever you want.

The parameter incorrect


The parameter is incorrect

Symptoms:
- Synching with Outlook.
- Error message: 'The parameter is incorrect'.

Explanation:
Generally, this error message indicates that the configuration process has been cancelled at some point. Typically, this happens due to cancelling the setup process on the Outlook Folders tab. If you are on Exchange folder, this tab can take several minutes to populate.

Fix:
In order to correct the problem you are experiencing, you will need to delete or rename the .ini file and then reconfigure CompanionLink/DoubleLook. This file is typically found in one of two locations:

For CompanionLink:
c:\Program Files\CompanionLink\
c:\Documents and Settings\[Username]\Application Data\CompanionLink\CompanionLink

For DoubleLook:
c:\Program Files\DoubleLook\
c:\Documents and Settings\[Username]\Application Data\CompanionLink\DoubleLook

Please note that Application Data is a hidden folder and that the .ini file extension is hidden by default. Please see http://www.companionlink.com/support/howto/ht0017.html for an explanation of how to display all files.

Hope this helps

Western digital my passport 320 file path too deep


The "path" is the full name of a file or a folder, e.g.,

C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

If the path has too many characters, you get the error-message that you reported.

If you can, rename one of the folders, using a shorter name.

Accessing a folder.


This will sound off the wall, but we had something similar to this happen with my last laptop, where it was "access denied" in lots of areas, and we would have to find little backdoor ways to get into control panel and document files. The problem with our computer was that it had previously crashed, and we had rebooted and reinstalled the xp, but didn't have the registration number, so it would run ok, but to get into all those access denied things (which you eventually need to get into) we had to come up with our registration number.
Did it prompt you to enter the product key when you re-installed it?

Because the user settings on your old computer with the hard drive installed as master were password protected, your getting the error.

There may be other work arounds I don't know of, I just do a general search, files and folders, and then direct it to look in E:/
