Well the folders were created via a different machine right?
Its quite possible without knowing it you had set permissions on folders for accounts from that other machine. Just take ownership and change the permissions. Your best doing it from the root and redoing all the permissions on all the folders and files for this machine, or setting them to anyone/anon -- ie just wide open.
Its possible that you moved say this video folder from your old machine to your external drive? When you move stuff permissions are moved with them vs a copy where new copy takes on permissions of where it was copied too.

This is something I never understood. We know in most cases YOU DON"T HAVE to take owner ship. Well you do in Vista, 7 and 8 because for some reason they want to. But if you were to boot into a bartpe (XP PE) cd and try to read that same directory, you could, read it clear as day without taking ownership what so ever.
