I have the same Problem! Just added my old IDE Hard drive into my new PC (which was running a Serial ATA) It recognizes the drive, had to change boot sequence in BIOS but it recognized it. Now I changed all permissions and took ownership of the drive and it still wont let me in "Access Denied" it keeps saying. Currently running Windows 7 Ultimate 64x
