Read Only Error

Recommended Posts

I was trying to write some jpeg pictures to a cd and it said that files on the cd-rom drive are read only. Then I remembered that we had a computer upgrade and never reinstalled the cd creater. So, I reinstalled it. During installation it said it didn't support my operation system. But, it let me download anyway. I downloaded the upgrade on this site to version 5.3.5.10. Now, I'm getting the same error as before I installed it. I have Win XP. Thanks for any help you can offer.

First, a CD is always read-only, just like the commercially pressed CDs of music or software.

 

The exception is a Packet-Written CD (DirectCD, Drag2Disc, Nero's InCD, Sonic's DLA, etc), which is most useful for permantly losing the data. If you use RW media, the data will be lost sooner.

 

Go to the FREQUENT ANSWERS post pinned to the top of the board, and come back with enough additional information for us to make an educated guess.

Device manager info:

DVD/CD Rom Drives: HL-DT-ST CD-ROM GCR-8481B

LITE-ON DVD SOHD-16P9SV

 

I was able to save pictures to a CD-R disk before. We upgraded the hard drive a few months back. I thought that may have been the problem and I just needed to reinstall roxio. That didn't work so I thought it may be because we recently installed the DVD drive. I haven't tryed to burn music. But, It definately says the drive is read only when I try to write pictures there.

 

I'm not sure what other info would be needed here. Thanks

I'm afraid the only useful info here would be where you put the drive which you removed when you recently installed the DVD drive. You have taken the burner out.

 

The error message is correct. Both the drives you have in the machine now are READ ONLY. Neither of them is a writer, I'm sorry.

The 8148B is a lucky Goldstar 48x CD reader.

The SOHD-16P9 is a Lite-On 16x DVD reader and 48x CD reader.

 

You will need to (re)install a writer in order to save to CD-R again.

Good read Brendon.

Sorry it took me so long to come back. I just want to say thanks. When our friend upgraded the computer, he put the writer at the top instead back at the bottom where it was origionally. So when my husband installed the dvd drive, he put it at the top because he thought the writer was at the bottom. He went find the one he took out an it was in fact the writer. It took him awile but, he finally got around to reinstalling the writer. I haven't tried to put any pictures on a cd yet. But, it seems to be ready for me to do it when I'm ready. So, it wasn't a Roxio problem at all. Anyways, thanks for the help!

Thanks for coming back with "the rest of the story".

 

Glad it was worked out.
