Moved a Buffalo Terastation from an old network to a new on and mounted the drive as "V".  Attached 2 external usb drives to the terastation and mounted them as "w" and "x".  I am the system administrator.  I am unable to move files from "W' or "x" to the Terastation and I get a message "Network access denied. be sure you have the correct network permissions to perform this operation".

If I select "V", properties, security the group/user names listed there are Everyone, root (Tera-1\root) and root (Tera-1\root).  If I select everyone/ediit/fullcontrol (since I don't mind doing as I am the only user) I get Error applying security - V:\ access is denied.  Same for "W" and "X".

Seems like catch-22

All I need to do is move folders from the usb drives to the terastatiion and then I am going to dismount the usb drives.

I dont understand this mounted termonolgy >>mounted the drive as "V".  
Never heard of terastatiion so will google that..
TeraStation
http://www.buffalotech.com/products/network-storage/terastation/
If this is from Raid then the files maybe scattered over the drives.

and this
Attached 2 external usb drives to the terastation and mounted them as "w" and "x"
mounting a drive conjures a virtual drive with a mounted image?
Dont know if this is relevent from my little experience with mounting images in Daemon tools and Nero but can those virtual drives be shared? and then being external USB?

As i see it you just plug in the USB external drives wait till windows xp  finds new hardware and presto you have a folder that pops up!!
windows automatically assigns a drive letter to it comes under mass storage device.
Open the folder and just drag and drop the files over.
see if this can assist you

looks like your personal firewall can be involved:

disable zone alarm / Celleris, etc and try again.

Also it can be windows complaining because all of these machines must be part of the same WORKGROUP. you can try changing in all machines the workgroup to be "MSHOME" and restart.

Ok I will try that and the things on the techguy forum and get back to you.  I made the problem too complicated.  Simply put, I added NAS to my Vista network.  It had 2 USP ports on it so I attached 2 USB external drives.  I can't move files from the USB drives to the NAS.  Permission denied.  I am the admin.
I will tr y the firewall disable.  I don't have ZA just Norton.

As you have Norton the notourious garranteed to cause problems added with Vista
 if possible and safely stop Norton firewall and all it's services. Better still uninstall it,
 with Vista you dont need anymore problems
There are friendlier security software.
I switched over to PC tools

There is also AVG

Ok I did this:  Turned off Norton Autoprotect, personal firewall, intrusion prevention, and spyware protection.  Tried to move a small file from an attached external drive to the NAS.  No go.  Here is the message:  "Network access is denied. Be sure you have the network permissions to perform this operation".
So I tried this after turning Norton back on:  Removed one of the attached USB drives and attached it to a computer on the network.  I can now move files from that USB drive to the NAS.  This doesn't solve the initial problem but does provide a workaround and maybe a clue.

Sounds like NAS is not included in the exceptions options in Norton.
Or the port Nas is using is being blocked.
Don't really know what else to you offer you but from what I have read it is  aknown problem with little to none solutions as yet, the best answer seems to be to to turn off the AV
Do you have File sharing and public folder sharing turn on in VISTA?
See if this can assist

I am closing this question with no solutions in sight.  I have tried everything the experts offered but nothing helped.  I used a workaround of removing the external USB drive from the NAS and attaching it to a computer on th network.  Then files could be transferred/moved.

Thanks for all the help and proposed solutions.
