Folders Read Only aaaaarghhhh

Hi All,

XPPro - how do I change the Files and Folders read/write attributes.

I've tried going to the folder choose properties and uncheck the Read-only from the General tag - hit apply - hit ok.

After this when I check - the folder is still marked Read-only.

Not able to burn to CD and I'm guessing this is the issue with that too.

well the folder have to be read only for the computer to read it
it sounds like the cd writer try updating drivers software
But to me sounds wat your doing is fine

Thanks for responding - problem seems to have sorted itself out. Perhaps I should be closing more open apps before trying to burn!!
