Unable to edit music files in Media Player transfered from old laptop

Hi All

I had an ageing Vista laptop that developed a hard drive problem so I now have this great new 7 one.

I am fortunate in that I work for a local computer company so I was able to salvage music etc.

My issue is that I am unable to edit anything that was recovered from my old laptop in Media Player.

Anything ripped on this laptop is free to edit.

Cheers

Dave

Hi NinewhileNine, Welcome onboard.

Check the file attributes in the Properties dialog box of the transferred music files. If these are marked Read only, uncheck it and Apply.
