Question about NexxTech (DRW6S160PX) Burner
Why do i keep getting read-only file and can not save my new work back to my cd-rw or dvd-rw. I just installed this burner last week and cannot get my work done because of this read-only.
You cannot edit files *directly* on the CD/DVD. CD-RW and DVD-RW means you can "erase and re-burn" a cd or dvd, and reuse them like they were new.
You CAN however, just copy the files from the CD onto the hard drive and work from there. If you did that, sometimes files that are copied from a CD to the computer get copied with their "Read Only" flag set.
To undo that, in windows explorer, select the offending files that are on your HARD DRIVE, right click and go to Properties.
Uncheck "Read Only"
Now your files should be editable.
Again I emphasize that you cannot edit files directly on the CD or DVD. You can copy them to your computer, edit and change them as you see fit, and then re-burn the cd or dvd.
