Old hdd security problems...
I am the computer guy for my family, and I recently convinced my cousin to
get a new Fry's Vista box. I took the 80gb hdd (pata) from the old box & put
it in the new Vista box, but we are unable to access all the files on the
pata drive. Some photos and music are unable to be accessed even after making
the effort to give access through Vista security. Any takers? I saw the
answer to this somewhere, and I think I printed out a cmd line solution, but
I can't seem to find it, & my cousin is getting a little touchy about the
whole thing.

Since I don't know how you did the "access through Vista security", here
is how you take ownership under Vista:

(MS Windows Help) - http://tinyurl.com/sbm34

Check the permissions of the file or folder the file is saved in and
take ownership:

1. Right-click the file or folder, and then click Properties.
2. Click the Security tab.
3. Under Group or user names, click your name to see the permissions you
have.

To open a file, you need to have read permission. For more information
on permissions, see What are permissions?

http://tinyurl.com/2j9vgr

To take ownership of a folder:

1. Right-click the folder that you want to take ownership of, and then
click Properties.
2. Click the Security tab, click Advanced, and then click the Owner tab.
3. Click Edit. Administrator permission required If you are prompted for
an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide
confirmation.
4. Click the name of the person you want to give ownership to.
5. If you want that person to be the owner of files and subfolders in
this folder, select the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check
box.
6. Click OK
