click start click to open on my computer you should see your usb drive E: right click select properties there will be an array of options select the sharing tab option then advanced sharing make sure you have a tick in the share this folder box then click permissions make sure you have all 3 boxes ticked full control changes and read in windows 7

click start control panel user accounts click on the administrators account if you have made one or you will have to create one in windows
  • click start right click on my computer select open
  • Right click the icon of your Hard Drive (It should be C:/ or something)
  • Click Properties in the menu that comes up
  • Click the Sharing tab
  • Click permissions
  • And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.

hope this helps you
