    Default Data files on DVD disc stuck at read only

    I have a new Gateway GT4020 desktop with XP Media

    Edition.I have several plain text MS Word and

    Notepad files on my desktop that I can't copy to

    DVD. I am able to open them by clicking on them to

    bring up Word or Notepad. When trying to copy to

    DVD, I consistently get the error message "Windows

    encountered a problem when trying to copy this

    file".
    I have "enable drag & drop" enabled. I never had

    this problem with my replaced Gateway computer.

    Please help me.
    I was able to write files to a dvd-rw disc. However,

    I can't alter the word files because I get the error

    "can't change, read only. I can't change read only

    status due to the error Access Denied".

    Thanks,
    Aaron

    Hi aaron - Can you right click on the file you want to change and click properties. Under the 'General' tab is a box marked 'Read Only'. Is it checked? If so, uncheck it and see if that helps. Regards.
    I know everything about nothing, nothing about everything and precious little about the bit in between.

    No, this doesn't work. I get the error message Access Denied when trying to change the read only function
