external drive access denied

After 12 months of trying every answer in every forum, I gave up, I could either chuck the 640G hard drive - or I could format the drive. So that's the solution, lose all of your data but keep the drive, in my case I lost all the family photos that I'd scanned in over the years. Thanks eveyone in many many forums for your hints & advice. My external harddrive is now connected to my pc & running perfectly, It is recognised every time & I now have no problems with it. By the way my pc now runs on Ubantu as we have ditched windows 7 & windows vista from both of our pcs. If we ever buy another computer, it will be a Mac.
