Unlocking read-only files

I have several humdred photos which I downloaded from a CD. However they all have the "read-only" attribute set. I can unlock each by going into the properties of each file and unchecking the "read-only" box. However, is there a quick way of unlocking them all in one go?

Click one one and then hold down CTRL and hit A - (Select All) they will then all be selected. Then right click the group and uncheck Read Only.

All file when copied from a CD are Read Only.
