my files on my portable HDD become read only

March 6, 2011 at 20:14:12
Specs: Windows XP
It used to be used on a MAC but then I reprogrammed it so I can use on PC's instead. It works fine on my main PC but when I go to use it on other PC's or my laptop, the files are read only files instead and I can't make any adjustments to them. Also my OS on my main PC is Windows XP and my OS on my laptop is Windows Vista.

Does anyone know how I can make them not read only files? or is it my Portable Hard drive that is doing this?

Well, you can select the file(s)/folder(s), right-click, and select Properties. Go to the General tab, and there should be an "Attributes" section. In that section, there should be a checkbox that says "read-only". Uncheck it. Your files should no longer be read-only.
