An acquaintance of mine told me once (long forgotten) about a little utility that would remove the "Read Only" attribute from files copied to a CD R/RW so that you could either read them or copy (use) them on another PC other than your own. Does anyone know of any freeware applications that would do this?
Here's my particular situation. I have burned all my downloaded programs to a CD RW using Nero on my XP machine and also copied them from the CD RW to a CD R. But when I put either of these disks in the CD ROM of my Win 98SE machine, in Windows Explorer the contents of that disk aren't displayed..... i.e., blank. I know about Nero's "EasyWriteReader.exe" that you can install on another PC that doesn't have Nero installed that would allow that PC to access files on a CD that were written with UDF packet writing software, i.e, Nero in this case, or like the CD R that was copied from the CD RW. But to take advantage of this, you would have to put this utility on a floppy and install it first before being able to use the data on the CD RW. I am hoping that a utility that would remove the "Read Only" attribute from the files on the CD RW and the CD R would work just as well???
