how to retrieve pictures from old hard drive?

By tgoodman ·
static electricity fried my mother board.
I have a new computer.
I pulled old hard drive and plug into nre computer with external USB box.
I can see all the folders on the drive but when I try to open the "my pictures" folder I get the "access denied" message.
I can open all the other folders...
why not "my pictures"?
I imagine it has to do with not being the administrator on the drive.
any ideas how to get my pictures??
