I am trying to get my data from my old IDE hard drives. I purchased a IDE to USB connector. Everything works fine and I can see the drives but it says read only and I cannot copy them.

Thank You

You need to TAKE OWNERSHIP of the drive...

Does the message indeed say "Read Only", or are you getting an "Access Denied" message?
