If you dual booted like me, and your music is on your XP HDD, then follow these steps so you can play it without any problems.

1. Remove any passwords from your XP account. A password will stop you accessing the music through Vista.
2. In Vista, find your XP HDD. Right click and click Properties.
3. Click Security Tab.
4. Click Advanced.
5. Click Edit.
6. Click Add.
7. Click Advanced.
8. Click Find Now.
9. Find your Vista User.
10. Click OK.
11. Click OK.
12. Highlight your user in the table, or the User "Everyone". Click Edit, and check the Full Control box. Click OK.
13. Check the box which says "Replace all existing inheritable permissions...."
14. Click OK.
15. Click OK, and Click OK in the Properties box as well.

You should now be able to access all your files and music on your XP HDD.

Edit. It looks a more laborious proces than it is. Possibly just the way I've written it. But Vista has this purely for Security reasons. So although it's a fiddle, I think it's a welcome feature. And once you've sorted it, you never have to worry about it again.
