One reason could be that you don't have the right permissions on your 
file system (suposing that you are running unix/linux) -> this depends 
on the message you are getting. I don't rememmber well what's the 
message for this kind of error. I think is something like "file erno 
permission denied". The permissions I used are read/write for the user 
running zope and group owning the files, and nothing for the other users 
(here I assume that you have a group for the zope user only). It will be 
something like:

% chown -R zopeuser:zopeuser <ZopeRoot>
% chmod -R gu+rw <ZopeRoot>
% chmod -R o-rwx <ZopeRoot>
% find . -type d -exec chmod gu+x {} \; -> excecution perm. on folders

Then read the SETUID.txt on the doc folder to set the permissions of the 
var and Data.fs if you are running zope as root.

If the permissions are right on the file system and what you are getting 
is a zope "Unauthorized" exception, then try first exporting the 
ZClasses, then the data on the root folder from your old zope. Finally, 
import them on the a new empty zope 2.7.x install: first import the 
ZClases on the Products Folder, then the data. I don't know if this 
helps, but that's how I did the migration of my ZClasses on the past.

By the way, post a traceback, it will give us more clues.

That's strange :-(
