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?
