Read only file????

I have an iriver ihp120 mp3 player and i am trying to drag and drop from a previously backed up disk. i am trying to rename the songs and it keeps saying something about a read only file. why is it doing this an how do i overcome it?
I've tried right click, properties and checked the read only box. when i click apply it gives me a pop up saying 'error occured applying atributes, acces denied'
it's a .wma file.

Are you trying to change the attributes on a CD? If so, it will not work.

You need to copy to a folder on your hard disk.

I seem to remember that you need to copy & paste the file/s onto your hard drive from the disk that they are on,when done then change the attributes from read only and change what you want.Hope this helps.
