None of my folders on Win2K are read only, but if I burn any of them to a
CD, they do become read only. That's just the nature of burning CD's. When I
need to modify the files on the CD, I copy them to my HD and then right
click to change the permission to turn off "read only".

If I want to copy the modified file back to the CD, I have to do that
through my CD burning software, unless when the CD was burned the "session
was closed", which prevents burning more data on that particular CD.
