    Lets consider the ROM in CD-ROM, shall we......
    Just because a file is read only, there is nothing stopping you copying it to a hard drive and then working with it. If it retains read-only status after copying, just right click on the file and go to Properties to remove the read-only flag.

        Is this before or after you copy the files from the optical disk?

            As previously, I refer you to the definition of a CD-ROM (or DVD-ROM)
            READ ONLY applies to the medium, not the files

            You will need to copy the files off the CD-ROM onto your hard drive (a writable medium) THEN you can remove the Read-Only flag if you need to

              Do you receive an error message when you try to copy the files from the CD to your drive?
