Have you tried reformatting again? What file-system did you use? What permissions are shown currently in the security tab (Can you take a screen-shot)?

The easiest way to quickly get access would be to add full permissions to the group "Everyone" (this will ensure usability on other machines as well, however it's the least secure setting). Assuming you'll be handling physical security of the device and there is nothing overly sensitive being put on there, this is the setting I'd recommend.

Might I ask what part of my solution it was that helped you resolve your issue?

Well  actually I'm not sure I did a lot of things plus what you mentioned and it just cleared up.
I wish I could tell you more  but I really don't' know what really cleared the problem up. Thanks Mike H.
