If you are referring to files on a CD, they are read only because a CD does not allow you to write on it after it has been created.

You need to copy the file from the CD to your hard drive, edit, and resave it there.

If the file is already on your hard drive and is read only, you can right click on the file name, and select Properties. Clear the "Read Only" check box and choose OK.

Windows xp install "a disk read error occurred press ctrl +alt + delete to restart" my specs Pentium D 2.8 Ghz 2 Gb of ram 80 Gb sata hd pleas help


Win XP, probably almost a 5-6 year old CD, its probably because of write errors or physical wear and tear. A disk error means data cannot be read from it anymore (partly or fully). If it is genuine copy talk to Microsoft customer care and if you have a purchase proof, probably they can send you a new CD, else you will have to buy it again (even if you have a CD key that you actually purchased).
If it is not genuine, there are lots of sites, just google.

I have made an excel file with linked data in MS Office 2007.The file opens in read only mode though it is not open in any other location.


Possibly read only option is checked in file properties.

Right click the file and review the setting. Uncheck the read only box if necessary.

How to crack the windows activation prompt for xp sp3


Because you cracked the code Microsoft has decided to destroy your data, it is lost you might go to safe mode and try getting some of your data back but that’s what happens when you do something illegal. This site does not give out crack codes it Violates U.S. laws and international laws. So go somewhere else to get the crack. You have a limited time to get a non-cracked version before it will kill the drive. Do you like working for free? So stop using crack ok!

Excel file opens in read only mode


Hello,

There could be 1 of 3 things affecting this:

1. Is another application using that excel document? If so you will not be able to edit it until the other application stops using it.

2. Is the file currently in a location that you do not have write permissions? eg. another users shared documents

3. Check in the properties to see if it is set to read only. (right click on the document and click properties. in the 'General' Tab see if 'Read Only' is checked. If yes, uncheck it and click okay)

An easy way to make it editable providing you are the only one using it (If the above fixes dont work) open it up in excel and then click File --> Save As... and then save it somewhere else. That will then make it editable for you.

Have a Great Day!

I have certain text on a CD disk that I would like to edit. Computer tells me when I try, that it is "read only". How do I change mode to "read/write" to permit editing?


CD's are normally "read only", so the edited files cannot be saved back to the same CD.

You need to copy the documents you want to edit to your PC, edit, then save them to the PC. At some point, you may want to create a new CD with the edited files.

Put the CD in the computer, open up "My Computer". Double click on the CD (probably the "D:" drive) and right click on the file you want to edit, and choose "Copy".

Now go to "My Documents" on your computer (you can use the Start button to find it), and open that folder.

Right click again, and choose Paste.

Doubleclick the newly pasted file, and Word will allow you to edit and save it. You might want to use "Save As" instead of "Save" and give it a different name. So, Doc1.doc becomes Doc1a.doc or something similar.

There are other ways to do this - I'm giving you the most basic method.

Hi...........


Well there is more than one or two answers 4 that.
you should first check if you are at simple recovery mode. If not (now this will sound strange) right click the database, click tasks/backup and make a LOG backup.
Now right click databases and click Restore Database.
You should choose a new database name (for restore practice) .
You will probably have your last backups at the bottom of the screen...if not click add and choose you latest data backup.
click the log backup and the data backup should be checked , too. on options tab make sure the database is left ready to use.
