External HDD problems

#1
So my laptop's ac/dc port died and it was going to cost a bit to fix so decided to take the hdd out of it and put it in an enclosure, The hdd is running fine and the enclosure works great however i think there is a security issue on win 7, i try to access or move or copy my files from the hdd to my desktop but each time im told i do not have permission to access said files. Is there a work around this? i really need my files.

The OS the HDD was running was WinXP.
