About a week ago I purchase a SimpleTech 320 GB External Hard Drive. It worked fine on my old laptop (a Toshiba Satellite). I bought a new laptop yesterday a Sony Vaio and now when I plug in my HD, it will show up on my computer but when I try to click it to open the files it says "Location is Not Available. H:/ is not accessible. Access is denied." The weird thing is if I go to search and search for the title of a song that's saved on my HD, it will find it, let me click it and play it. But when I try to open the drive itself to look at or use any of the content itself or move a file (so that I can transfer it to my MP3 player etc.) it won't let me. My laptop operates on Vista if that makes any difference.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did the drive come with a driver disk? Also, go to Start>Run put in compmgmt.msc and hit enter. When the new window opens up, go to disk management. Look to the right and see if it is listed there and has a drive letter assigned to it. If it is there without a drive letter than right click on that space and there is an option to assign one.

Click Start, click Control Panel, click System. On the Hardware tab, click Device Manager and look for any yellow exclamation points by the drive
Also make sure you're logged in as administrator. Do you by chance use Norton's GoBack?

Does the drive have it's own power cord or is it powered through the USB cable? Are there any other USB devices plugged in?
