Windows 7: Win7 can't see folders on an external drive

Win7 can't see folders on an external drive

I have a Windows 7 machine with external drives. I bought a new machine, also with Windows 7. When I moved the external drives over I can't see the folders. I thought the drive might be damaged so I moved them back to the original machine and I can see the folders.

Why can't I see the folders on the external drive with the new machine?

Do you get any kind of message when you try to browse the external drive, like Access denied?
