If you use plain ol' cd-r's, file attributes are always burned as read only.
To preserve file attributes, there are alternatives.
Use cd-rw disks.
Use packet writing software. (i.e., incd, etc)
Zip them up before you burn.
Buy a Mac. :thumbsup:

Ok But can you also remove the read-only attribute of a CD?

No, not the cd itself.
You can copy the files to your drive, then remove the read only attribute from them once they are on your HD.
