Error while collapsing the Databases node of SQL Server 2005 in SSMS 2008

Hi, In our environment, there are both SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008 instances. I am able to connect to SQL Server 2005 intance from SQL 2008 SSMS. But when I try to collapse the Databases node, it gives me the following error **The server principal "USER" is not able to access the database "AdventureWorks" under the current security context** But when I use SQL 2005 SSMS, it works properly. Please note that the user does not have the rights to connect to some databases including AdventureWorks. Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks a lot. It is working now. Just FYI, only the "collation" column has to be unchecked in my case.
