I MOVED (D) DRIVE FROM XP PRO CPU TO XP HOME CPU. NOW I GET ERROR "ACCESS DENIED"

I  REMOVED MY (D) DRIVE FROM ONE CPU RUNNING XP PRO (NTFS FILE SYSTEM) AND PLACED IT IN A DIFFRENT CPU RUNNING XP HOME (NTFS FILE SYSTEM).  NOW WHEN I TRY TO ACCESS THE (D) DRIVE ALL I GET IS: ERROR ACCESS DENIED!  THE XP PRO HARD DRIVE HAS BEEN REFORMATTED DUE TO INCREASING INSTABILITY AND CONTINUOUSLY INCREASING ERROR MESSAGES.  ALL (D) CONTAINED WAS MY PERSONAL STUFF (ALL OF IT).  I REMEMBER RESTRICTING ACCESS TO (D) USING THE SECURITY SETTINGS THAT XP PRO HAS AVAILABLE.  I RESTRICTED ACCESS TO MYSELF ONLY:   DELL/REX (ADMINISTRATOR)  I CAN SEE THE (D) DRIVE IN THE MICROSOFT MANAGEMENT CONSOLE, WHERE IT SAYS "38GB, NTFS, HEALTHY, ACTIVE."  WHEN YOU VIEW THE PROPERTIES YOU GET "0 FREE SPACE" AND "FILE SYSTEM RAW."  ANY IDEAS ON HOW TO ACCESS IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.  I HAVE THE RECOVERY CONSOLE INSTALLED AS A BOOT OPTION ON MY XP HOME CPU, AS WELL AS THE ADDITIONAL SUPPORT TOOLS FOUND ON THE CD.  THANK YOU ALL IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE.  AND THE USE OF YOUR GRAY MATTER.

Or if that doesn't work put this drive back into the mahcine you took it out of and set the permissions on the drive itself to include that eveyone Group

Open explorer right click on the drive
Select  Properties
Click the  Security tab
Click the  Advanced  button
Click the  Find Now  button
Click on the  Everyone  group
Click the  Ok  button
In the list marked  Group or User Name  click on Everyone
Then in the list below click on the  Full Control box so it is checked
Then click the  Ok  button

Thank You Very Much.  I didn't know that to access the security features in XP Home you had to be in safe mode.  I also didn't know about the rescan disks tool.
