Default Recovering files from a laptop hard drive

I have a 500GB laptop hard drive and I'm trying to instal it into my desktop long enough to get my music off of it. When I try to locate the files for the music they're not where I saved them and I can't seem to find them. Is there a way to locate the misc files without putting the hard drive back into the laptop?

More than likely the reason for this is ownership on the HDD. You will need to change them so you can view all the files from another device. You just have to take ownership of the files. What OS you on?

I'm running Win7. And I still can't figure it out.
