There is a good reason for that. It would destroy the integrity of the image. Also if you could write to the image just think what a virus could do to it.

Maybe I haven't read enough of the thread but I have no problems at all doing this type of copy from a mounted image. Furthermore, if you mount the image using the pe restore DVD ownership doesn't appear to matter even copying data from another user account.

Michael, he wants to delete files in the image. That is not possible because the mounted image is Read only.

Damn too slow again.

I see now. I wouldn't be comfortable altering an image anyway. I'd be worried about system file integrity issues.

In that case, why not restore the image to a random partition, edit the files in that partition and then re-image the edited image?

Yes all I wanted to do and what I thought would be easy would to access the My Music library in the image and copy / paste it to the C: drive library.

It is just I cannot "open" the image out to do that I just didn't want to use the whole image as I think there are problems in there that caused me to reinstall, plus ripping them all again was not a pleasant thought.

I am a little confused as to why the image should be made read only or some such apart from someone else trying to access it.

One option I did think of was using a Ubuntu boot and transferring the music that way but it is going to have to wait until tomorrow now as Iit is get ready for work time
