Specific folder doesn't open!

I have a WD MyPassport
My movies folder opens fine and has been opening fine since I started using my drive on my new computer. However the music folder for some reason won’t open! It says I don’t have permission to access it.

Any help please?

Try taking ownership of the entire hard drive. Your music folder may have inherited permissions from another location.


Thanks for the reply, it has been some time since I got around to trying your solution.

I did everything you suggested, including everything in the link. I am logged in as an administrator and everything should be working. But it isn’t.

At the very end when I hit apply it gives me a dialogue box asking if I am sure I want to take ownership of the folder and every subfolder and file. When I hit yes, it tells me that I was unable to take ownership and access is denied.
