Windows 7 Security Permissions

Hello,

I just upgraded from Vista Home Premium 32 bit to Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.
Before I did this I copied a massive number of files to a external USB drive.
Once I got W7 64 bit installed and opened the external drive, where I put all the files, I can't see the files.
The new W7 user is part of administrators.   Administrators has all permissions set.

When I tried to apply Administrator permissions to the entire external drive I get nothing.

How do I get my new W7 user to see all the files on the external drive?  On all my external drives?

Thanks in advance.
