I am trying to recover some files from a back up cd I have tried unticking the boxes in cd properties but get message " an error occurred applying attributes to the file", can anyone help please.

Think you can only do this by importing the documents onto a disk that is writeable. eg the Hard Disk of the computer. Should then be possible to change them to read/write format

dewskit is perfectly correct.

You can't change the attributes of files on a CD, by the the very nature of being on a CD you can only read the file.
If you need to modify the files, copy them from the CD to a folder on your Hard Drive. You will then be able to modify them.
