I am trying to drop & drag a folder using Pinnacle Expression. 1 CD has some data the other is blank. I cannot copy folders on to them as they are write protected. How do I remove this protection.

copy the folders to the Hard drive first

Now copy them to disc

I am copying from the hard disk but still getting write-protect error.

Any other suggestions please

If I understand your problem correctly, this should help:

Anything on a CD will be read only. Copy the files to your hard disc, then use Clear Read-Only.

If you burn it again to another CD/DVD it will become read only again.
