Trying to copy data from dead motherboard XP machine to new Windows 8.
Pulled drive from XP and attached, via USB, to W8.
Drilled down to my pics, copied and cannot paste to W8 pics... permission issue.

Any thoughts?

I used to do this from XP to W7 all the time.

You will probably need to take ownership of the of the files and directories and assign yourself full permissions within Windows 8.
