Cant access hard drive with windows xp on a computer with windows 7

My screen went out on my dells e1505 inspiron so I pulled the hard drive and put it in a hard drive case thinking I could retrieve the data. I plugged the drive into another computer that is running windows 7 and not xp and I keep getting an error message telling me I don't have permissions to access the data. Any suggestions?
