Unable to edit photos

I've just got myself a new camera.

Its great, but for some reason the photos that I take on it, when I transfer them to my PC cause issues.

Firstly, Vista tells me I need administrator access to copy them to my laptop - why??

Also when I finally get them on to the lappy, windows says I can't edit them and when I open them with PSP2 and get to edit them, I try and save them and the program says 'the file name is invalid'.

What is happening???

How do you copy them. I stick my card in the reader and drag and drop.
Instead of save try save as and make them JPG files.

With my previous camera, I used the 'drag and drop' way with no issue - this is causing issues. Right clicking on the file from the card brings up a load of options ('save as' isn't one of them).

Trying to save an edited version of the pictures from PSP2 brings up a message saying 'This file is read only'.

Just been fiddling around with it and noticed that the message wasn't 'this FILE is read only', it was actually 'this FOLDER is read only' which I assume means the external HD that I save my photo's on.

Gone into the 'properties' of said folder and had a play with the settings.

It seems to have worked - for now!

Strange though, never had this issue before
