SQL server 2008 cluster & file ownerships

Hi,
I need to understand file ownership on SQL server cluster which is based on Microsoft cluster technology.

I have a SAN drive , a clustered disk (I drive)  mounted on both SQL server nodes but only one can see it . The other can access it via windows share but can't see it as a drive.

Now I thought is wrong mainly because if it's a clustered resource then both node should able to see it at any given time.

How does drive sharing works under Microsoft cluster technology?

Please paste me some MVP blog links than MS doc pages.

Thanks

•Microsoft uses what is called a shared-nothing model when it comes to managing disks. Shared-nothing means that each physical disk or hardware fault-tolerant disk set on the shared SCSI bus can be owned (accessed) by only one node of the cluster at a time.
