    Copy data files from a CDROM - access denied

    I just upgraded to windows 10. I am trying to copy DATA files and folders from a DVD. This is not music, movies, or anything like that, these are data files I was able to access in prior versions of Windows 10 that I placed them on the DVD myself. I am told Access denied because they are Read-only. Of course they are read-only , this is a DVD. How do I copy the files? I obviously cannot change the read-only attribute. These are not encrypted, picture a copy of multiple files and folders to my DVD. Now I cannot get to them.

    Who was the idiot at Microsoft decided you cannot copy a read-only file? Security is one thing, but didn't they have the brains enough to realize you cannot change the attributes on a DVD?

    Where are you trying to copy the files to? The destination folder might be read only.

    windows 10

    The long way would be opening the data file with the appropriate program and then do "save as" and put it in the folder you want
