  • Changing properties on Read-only files

    After I have saved a file to a CD (rewritable) I am unable to move it to another CD, or even delete it as the response is
    "Read-only" file. I have attempted to change the properties and uncheck the "read-only" box; When I click on apply, an error message comes up with "Error applying attributes".....access denied.

    Any suggestions? Thank you!!!

    Welcome to RetouchPRO!!

    Are you trying to change the read only attribute on your "original" RW CD? If so, make sure the CD is writable and not "closed to work in any CD player."

    Also, what OS are you running? Might be a problem in W2K or WXP with administrator vs. user capabilities, esp. if you wrote to the CD as administrator? (Just a guess, since I've been having fun figuring out the whole administrator/user thing in W2K over the past week.)

I got a little nervous about putting all that information there in case of a crash and thought it would be a good idea to move them over to a CD. I saved them all in "Direct...

        Here is something I have been wondering.

        To those of us that mail/give/sendproduce CD's for our clients:

        What do you include as far as the CD itself?

        Do you include a file within the cd?

        Personalized CD Covers?

        Archiving CD's
        by Ed_L
        If you use Cd's for archiving purposes, is there a particular type of CD that you use? If there is, why do you choose it over the others?
