I have a SimpleTech 500G external hard dirve that I have been using on a Toshiba laptop with Windows XP. I have a new Toshiba that runs Windows 7 (upgraded from Vista) that I want to use the same external hard drive with. When I click the drive to acces it through My Computer, it tells me that access is denied. Can you help me with overcoming this?

Access is denied is typically a security/sharing violation. If your on the administrative account on the 7 machine – adjust the security of drive. From my computer right click on the drive go to properties. You will have to click on each of the user groups and modify the security settings you wish. Also on the advanced tab should be an option to take control of the drive.

U can remove the drive from the external unit and hook it up to your vista computer as a secondary drive. Boot up the vista, use windows explorer, and transfer the data from the secondary drive to either your primary or a usb stick.
