I have just written some photo files onto a DVD+RW disc.ALthough the files were not read only in the My Pictures folder they were on the resultant disc and i cannot delete any files on the disc.I used Pinnacle Instant CD/DVD to write the disc. How can i copy these files so that they are not read only please.

Sorry, but the normal attributes for any CD/DVD file are "read only"

CD and DVD disks are not read/write like a hard drive or floppy disk. An RW disk really only means you can ReWrite the data after completely erasing the disk.

Unless you use special "packet writing" software (InCD etc) then you cannot do what you ask. That software allows deletion of a file but at a cost of overall reliability of all files on the disk, in my experience.
