Default Connecting a slave HD

Hello. I recently connected my old hard drive of my broken PC to my new PC. When I went to "Documents and Settings" in that drive, I can't open or have access to 'User Name' Documents. What should I do? Thanks.

When you installed it did you make sure that you set the jumpers on the back of the HD so it's set as a slave?

I've had ths problem before and I fixed it-but I can't remember exactly how I did it.

If you are using Windows XP try this:

Click on My Computer>

Right click on the slave hard drive>

Left click on Properties>

Left click on Sharing tab at the top of screen>

Make sure the box is uncheck where it says Local sharing and security.

Check the boxes below it-Network sharing and securtiy.
