Windows 7: [Win7 Ultimate x64] Sharing / HDD Reading/Writing Prob

[Win7 Ultimate x64] Sharing / HDD Reading/Writing Prob

Hey guys, I'm getting really frustrated and can't figure out what's wrong...

I have 4 HDD's, 1 is for my OS and the other 3 are data drives. When I used a program to write a file to my E: and F: data HDD I have no problem. But for some reason when I try to write to my G: HDD I get errors. All the settings are the same for the 3 data HDD's. All 3 HDD's are also being shared. But for some reason I can only read files from my G: HDD and not the E: or F:. Once again all the share settings are the same for the 3 HDD's. I guessing these problems are tied together somehow.

Thanks for any help.

Are your hard drives set to slave? The hdd with the hard drive should be set to master and the others set to slave. And what exactly do you mean when you say "Write a file"?
Are you putting in files like music, videos, pictures, documents, and programs?
Also try disabling your share options. If all of your hard drives are installed in your desktop, why have them shared?

Did you try taking ownership of G: ?

I ran into this when upgrading from XP... I had to take ownership of all my data before networking would work properly.

Well they're SATA and in my P6X59D BIO's there is no "master" "slave". You just set the drives to 1, 2, 3, 4.

Here is a screen shot of disk management.

If I get into a program. Make something and then try to save it to G:... i get an error.

Movies, Images, NFO files.

Sharing them to a media player, just like I did in XP. Only never had a problem with XP.

I'm not sure what you mean by that. Any directions? There is only one user and I'm logged in as Administrator.

So pretty much, your bios automatically sets your hard drive in sequential order. Nice.
And since you said you get an error, can you tell me exactly what error it says?

Right click the drive in Computer... select Properties, then Security, then Advanced, then Owner, then Edit... Click your account name or Administrators, check the "Replace owner...." checkbox and then ok your way out...

All depends on the program I'm using. They say either, "access path error", "create file error", "save file error", etc...

The E: and F: were set to "SYSTEM" and G: was set to "Administrators". I check the "Replace owner..." box and click apply. It makes the changes and then unchecks the box again. I'm assuming it's suppose to do this. I changed them all to "Administrators" and I'm still having the same problem.
