I'm actually new to this site and haven't posted here before, so I'm not sure if I'm posting in the right area, but I have a problem that I have been trying to fix for awhile.
I have an 500GB SimpleTech PininFarina external hard drive and whenever I try to open it I get this message: "G:\ Access is denied." It just began appearing suddenly about 2 weeks ago. I hadn't installed any new programs or anything. An d the weird thing is that I can still access the files through other programs, e.g. I have the Zune software and all of my music is on my external drive and I can still play the music through the Zune program even though I can't access the drive.
I have tried running the computer in SafeMode to access the Security tab and add the User to the allowed users list (or something like that.) Yet, I still can't access it.
