Hi kn0c,

From the fact you don't have permission, I take it that you have formatted it with NTFS.

To gain acces do the following.

1. Login the admin account
2. open explorer
3. rightclick on your card
4. click on properties
5. go to security tab
6. click on the edit button
7. click on add button
8. type authenticated users
9. click ok
10. check the full permissions box
11. click ok a few times until you are back in the explorer.

This should do the trick.

If you find you can't add a user, you should first take ownership.
You can find how in our tutorial section.

good luck

Ummm, the reason that UAC was implemented was so that you wouldnt have to do this.....

You can just use the admin account and be prompted for elevation whenever its needed.
