WTF... I cant access all the movies that i had saved to my external hard drive since i've upgraded to windows 7 from xp. All the programs that i had save still worked and i have access to all the docs and pics i had on it. But it won't let me play my movies? they are mostly avi, wmv and divx. All the standard formats. I've tied using vlc too? It says i need to change ownderships. I've transfered ownership to every file on the drive since those error messages to my windows 7 log in. Ive tried running all the media players as admin (even though i am the only user on the cpu). Nothing. I've even install Unlocker and the windows take ownership registry tool...nothing. I'm running windows 7 ultimate 64 bit and my external is an HP simple save 1 TB.
