I've locked myself out of my external hard drive! Halp!

Win7 laptop with a usb external drive. I was starting to consolidate several hard drives onto a single 2TB drive, as well as setting up SMB access for my Boxee Box. Somehow, I managed to change the security access on an external drive such that no one can access it. I can't seem to take back permission as my primary login (an admin account), the admin group, or the account I created for Boxee. Those are the only accounts.
I tried the registry hack that adds "take ownership" to the context menu, but that only works for directories, not at the root level of a drive.
