OS Win XP . When I move or copy files from the hard drive to a CD-RW I end up with the files on the CD as ‘Read Only’. While the files were on the hard disk they did not have this attribute. I have tried to change the Read Only attribute on the CD but ‘Access’ is denied.and I cannot delete files which have been copied to the CD in error. How can I overcome this situation?

The default in windows is to change files to read only when burning to a cd. You can right click on the folder or the file and change this attribute.
