PAF - read-only
Posted by: Lisa Foster (ID *****1447) Date: March 28, 2006 at 12:55:21

I am trying to copy a PAF file onto a rewriteable CD that I created for a friend on my computer, so that on his computer he can add to the information. When he tried to open the file, it said that it was a read-only file. I followed the suggestions on other posts to uncheck the read-only property for the file, but when I tried that here on my computer, a message came up saying that I'm not able to access those attributes. I just don't want to have to go to his computer & retype all the info into the blank PAF that he now has downloaded. Please help me be able to copy his file onto a CD so he can add & make changes to it.
