PS you may find that you will have to copy the data on your cd to a folder on your hard drive and carry out the operation above from that location.

The answer is, of course, also provided in Outlook Express's Help pages - like all Microsoft pages extremely comprehensive.

Don`t forget to remove the "read only" attribute afterwards.
