Right click on the files/folder that you want to copy to your disk and click on properties.

See if the files/folder has a tick on 'read only'. If so, remove the tick in read only and then try to copy the file over to the CD again.

Is it a CD-R, or a CD-RW?
Was the CD created as a multi-session CD, or was it finalized?
If it was finalized, and it's a CD-R, you won't be able to copy anything to it.

Yeah, what tg1911 and Nikas said and if that doesn't help you could try this FREE standalone CD burner thingy... It works for me. --> http://www.silentnight2004.com/microburner.html and did I tell you that it's free?
