can't copy file - access is denied - but only for some files

Experts:

I am trying to copy files from a shared folder on blackhawk ( a Win XP Home computer) to jupiter (a Win XP professional computer).  They are both on the same ethernet subnet in the same room.  When I am sitting at jupiter and trying to copy some files from blackhawk to a folder on jupiter using Windows Explorer, sometimes I get the message "Can't copy <filename>: Access is denied".  But with other files in the same folder, it copies OK.  Why are some files able to be copied and some not?  I can see all of the files on blackhawk just fine in the Explorer window on jupiter, I just can't copy some of them.  

Blackhawk has only simple file sharing enabled since I think that's all Win Home allows.

Thanks,
Tnic

Thanks for your reply.  I am still unable to copy some files, but I have been busy away from the computer and have been unable to try the "unlocker" program yet.  Thanks for the informational links.  When I get more time, I will sit down and try to solve this problem again.
