administrator problem

My friend has a Advent computer running xp home.
When he tries to delete a file from a dvd-rw it will not allow him to do it as it needs administrator rights.
There is only one user created on his system with full privilages.

Any suggestions

That might be a little bit complicated for him.
I thought as there is only one primary user that that would have administrator rights. He did create the files.
Am I confused?

You cannot normally delete files on a DVD-rw (or CD-rw) disk, unless it was 'formatted' prior to use by InCD or DirectCD, OR, burnt as a multi-session disk, right? G

Is the administrator account set up when the manufacturer installs xp home.
If so does it require a password.
On my system (xp home) I can do any house work required and never had an administrator problem.
He seems to get the problem on some tasks that I can complete on mine.
Forgive me if I may seem a little bemused.
