I have the same question but got confused on the answer -
"the files will sit waiting to be written to a cd. you simply right click and open to access them again." Access them for what? I want to burn it onto the CD-R(W) which I have done but every time I click on the file to open it I get the 'cannot open because it exists as a Read-Only file. Please make the file Read-Writable and then try opening it again' message. I tried to get into the properties but it won't let me change it from Read-Only.
I tried using Nero (don't know which version, but it came with the HP desktop) and I get the same message. I used the wizard and it doesn't give me a choice of changing the property.
To originally save the file from hard drive to cd, I went into My Computer, copied the file to E:, clicked on E: then it shows up under "Files Ready to be Written to the CD" and then I clicked "Write these files to CD" under CD Writing Tasks.
I'm trying to help someone out with this - because I don't have this problem with my computer at home!
Thanks in advance for any tips/advice!
