Emc 9 - Can I Create Files That Are Read And Write?

Question

I have EMC 9 on a Vista x64 machine as part of a DELL computer purchase.

 

I am burning TIFF and Jpeg files on DVD +R discs. The files are burning as Read Only.

 

A client using a Mac can batch unlock the files, but due to internal security setup on his server, he still cannot make edits to the unlocked files in Photoshop.

 

So, I want to know if I can create Read and Write files that he won't have to unlock after he has copied them to his HD?

 

Thanks.

ps. If I right-click on a folder of files and choose Send to Drive H, the files are burned using Windows proprietary software, and are both Read and Write. However, Roxio gives me the option of verifying the files, so I'd like to use it instead.

Your using RW's with what, Windows Live File System or Mastered format?

 

CDs/DVDs except RWs are always read only.

 

The read only attribute should have no meaning for files/folders copied on to hard drives. Sounds like some Mac OS permission problem but I don't drink the Macintosh Kool-Aid! ;)

Many thanks for the reply. ;)

 

Just to confirm, the discs are DVD +R, RW.

 

To be honest, I don't know whether I'm using WLF or Mastered.

 

I've never had this problem with any client before, so I'm guessing it's a permissions issue at their end.

 

That said, I'd still like to be able to use Roxio and produce Read and Write files on the DVD, as the Windows DVD burning software appears to produce.

 

Does Roxio "close the session" by default, thus making the files Read Only?

 

Any further thoughts?

 

Thanks again.

You didn't understand what I said? "CDs/DVDs except RWs are always read only."

 

Your using a OEM Software came free with the PC. I'm not familiar with it or what application your using within the suite? Click help, options, or project settings and see what options are available.

 

The Roxio Verify option is not a silver bullet and I never use it. I check size and file and folder count.
