I have some Kodak Picture discs that were used up to W98 and I am using W-XP Pro. They are all upside down and when I go to rotate them, I get a msg saying that the JPEG file is a Read-Only file and the pics cannot be rotated. Just for kicks, I tried putting a couple in my Adope PhotoShop to see if they could be rotated in there but I get the same message. Who out there is going to come up with the perfect solution? :thumbsup:

Right click the image, and select Properties.
Click the General tab and at the bottom, next to Attributes, remove the tick from Read-only.
Click Apply.
Click OK.

What tg1911 said should work just fine. You should also copy them onto your hard drive to work on them (you can always copy them to another CD, which isn't a bad idea as most CD's have a "shelf life" of a few years). Sometimes (not sure why), if the source file is from a read only location (CD/DVD) it won't allow you to make changes. Note that if you use Windows to rotate the image, it may change the actual size of the image itself (I get that warning all the time when I use windows explorer to view/rotate images) which I believe is a permanent change. Rotate them in Photoshop to avoid permanently altering the image size.

Hope it helps!

If you run into the problem stevealmighty mentioned:

Sometimes (not sure why), if the source file is from a read only location (CD/DVD) it won't allow you to make changes.

This program might be of help:
ReadOnly
It's not freeware ($10), but there is a Demo.

There's also this Microsoft Knowledge Base Article that might be helpful:
