You need to copy the databases to the local hard drive and not try to access them from the CD. You cannot write to the CD for each database transaction.

You can move the files to the local hard drive, conduct your work, and then copy them back to the CD as needed.

Does this help?

Anuk,
Right click on the db that you copied to your hard drive. SElect "Properties" from the list Under "attributes".

Unselect the "read only" box, save and close the properties window.

HTH,
Loralee
