Question Locked folder problem

I had windows xp on my computer and everything was going well and i updated my motherboard and when i turned my computer back on after i put in my motherboard windows wouldnt load.... i tried and tried but wouldnt load. So i installed another copy of windows onto another hard drive and it installed succesfully and i wanted to copy my documents over from my previous hard drive. But i got an error saying that access is denied when i try to access the folder and copy and delete it. I was wondering if there is anyway i could transfer my old files to my new hard drive?

Thanks
Matt
