Windows 7: Media Write Protected

Media Write Protected

I am trying to send a fax with Win 7 and it can't send. I get the error "media is write protected". I can't find what is write protected. It may be a security setting but I have failed to find it. Any Ideas?

Well the obvious steps for file access come to mind.
Take ownership of source file.
Check that it's not set to read only.

I couldn't find the obvious. Uninstalled Fax software through programs and features and then reinstalled. It worked.

Ah seems the fax software itself was having rights issues then huh?

Well glad you got it sorted.
