unable to remove duplicate files from cd rw

  johnnyrocker 10:50 26 Dec 2003

during a recent program prob i for safety backed up the contents before troubleshooting.in error some of the contents became duplicated, tried to delete them and got message 'these files are read only and cannot be removed' i thought that was the idea of cd rw or am i missing something?

May not be the same thing with your problem, but you might have to reformat the RW disk.

Once the FAT or index or whatever is corrupted, then you are in for all sorts of weird messages.

At least you have the opportunity to transfer the present stuff selectively to your HD as a temporary thing, while you "discipline" the RW disk.
