Files on dvd-rom are ALWAYS readonly. So you can read them and copy them to laptop without problems. But afterwards they are still read only. You want to clear the readonly bit?

I assume you have made a new folder speciale for dvd input. For example you made "my desktop"\DVDinput and copy it the stuff you want to this new (so empty) folder. did you do it this way? Is so... richt click on DVDinput->properties. Now clear the read-only checkbox. Apply the changes

Did you COPY the files succesfully? So COPY instead of MOVE. MOVE is sort of COPY and then delete form DVD. Delete from DVD is impossible.

So did you try COPY??

1 hour to copy is much too long... it would take 15 minutes or so. Did some files copy succesfully to laptop? Try some small files only as a test.

You can copy readonly files without problems!! copy means read them and place the same in another location. So you need write access to folder on laptop..... files on DVD can be readonly.

installing a program from DVD works the same. setup.exe is copied to memory and executes. it reads some files from dvd and copies them to harddisk
