Editing FD many times with no problems. Suddenly could not get info onto screen. Apparently FD had become read only. How do I get my FD back to normal? It was new disk which I formatted before using. Info on disk some 100+ pages. Desperate to recover. OS Xp

Do you mean the disk is write-protected - in whch case close the little slider if it's become open.

Or do you mesan the file is marked Read-Only - in which case you need to change it's status.

Being read only should not stop you getting information off the disk - which is just reading it.

What actual errors are showing up?
