Folder not accessible on external hard drive
I keep my music on a 500GB external hard drive (no, it's not full...), along with cd images and other random stuff. I installed Windows 7 Professional on both my desktop computer and my Dell Mini 9 Netbook, enjoying it thoroughly. However, I can't access my music folder on my external hard drive when i plug it into the netbook. I initially had the external hard drive plugged into the desktop, so I'm guessing there's a permissions problem.
What I want to do is completely make the folder accessible to everyone. I don't want any restrictions on it whatsoever. How do I do this? I'm a Windows XP Home person, so I know nothing of file permissions.
