Why do my folders keep reverting back to read only?

Asked by joeysefika (3093points) May 9th, 2008

I’m on widows and trying to copy some music into a program. But whenever i try to add it it comes up with a message saying that the disk is write protected, full or the file is in use. The drive isnt full. But the files are on read only. When i un-tick this option and click ok i try again and the same error occurs. when i go back into the properties its back on read only.

you might try restarting the computer after you check the box.?.
Otherwise you might need to go into the properties for the drive and look at the drives options also.

sometimes updating the driver files can be helpfull. Check your media player settings as well!

may i ask what program? And what type of drive are we copying off of? It’s not a flash drive or an external hard drive is it? Are you an administrator?

I solved the problem; I was using a media server program for control 4. The problem is that the program didn’t like the NTFS file system therefore i just copied the music onto an external HD (FAT32) and it imported onto the program with out a problem.
