Access denied to external drives

Strange problem this one..
For a while, i have been unable to access my external drives (usb pen, and exeternal hard drive) by double clicking on them in my computer, or on any shortcuts. The only whay i can access them is by right clicking and opening explore.

This also occurs when i take connect them to another pc. I have run virus checks, but not sure whats wrong.

Im running Xp on all my machines

I have heard that certain flash drives etc have a function called hide. If this has been activated you can only see them the way you say. Not sure how you fix it though.
