Network Drive Permissions Help

I have Upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7. The problem I am having is that Windows 7 will not allow me to move files on my Western Digital My Book World network hard drive. I tried to change the file ownership but I get a error message stating that "Unable to set new owner". Can anyone help me on this?

Permissions for user on network
Hi, I'd like to share a folder only for a certain user on a LAN. I'm on Win7-hp and the user is on XP-h. But when I go to assign permissions, the Location field only allows choices from my Win7 machine. If I put the XP user's name in directly, it flags that error. The Win7 user is an admin, and...
