Saving files from a previous OS

I have bought a new WindowsXP computer and am transferring files and folders from Win98SE saved on CD to the new machine.I have met a problem insomuch as some files and folders are `Read Only` and can`t be saved in XP although they can be opened and accessed from the CD.Is there any way this can be solved.Thanks for any forthcoming advice.
