public tv folder read only? mythtv needs read write persmissions

Q: public tv folder read only? mythtv needs read write persmissions

I tried unchecking read only.
When apply and look it is back to read only.

How can I make this read and write permission?

Preferred Solution: public tv folder read only? mythtv needs read write persmissions

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: public tv folder read only? mythtv needs read write persmissions

You can do this by going into the C:>Users>Public folder properties, click the Sharing tab then click on the Advanced Sharing button showing in the first picture.

Click the box to share the folder like in the second picture, at that point the Permissions button will light up.

Click the permissions button, Add check marks for full control "third picture" then hit the Apply button, on all windows click Ok etc.

At this point the Public folder and it's subfolder will have read/write access.

Guys, a real basic question. I am looking at buying a new machine and have a choice of DVDRW/CDRW or DVDRW. The CD write and read speed (16 and 24) appears alot quicker than the DVD write and read speed (4 and 8). Is this a true comparison i.e. the CD reads 4 times quicker than the DVD or am I missing something. Will be using the laptop for a lot of CD reading for itunes and this is an important factor in my decision. All guidance appreciated. Cheers.

Not sure what's going on here or how to fix it. I've tried every workaround I can find, and nothing works. It's a folder in my Steam directory, and even when I try to manipulate it as an administrator I can't even read access it. I also can't see permissions
on it, so I can't change those or take ownership, either.

I really need to fix this. Any ideas?

A virus may be at work.....you may need to reinstall Norton AV.

If you have a fast internet connection (broadband), run an online virus scan at TrendMicro. Make sure to select the Autoclean option. Otherwise, make sure your antivirus program has the latest definitions and run a full system scan.

I have a Memorex CD-RW 1x-4x 700MB/80minute and in the past have saved and updated files. Now for some strange reason I opened a file from the CD and after update I tried to save it back to the CD and I was told that the folder I tried to save it in was READ ONLY.

I searched HELP and the instructions they gave me were as follows:


In doing thiese steps it went well until I got in ACCESSORIES and there is NO WINDOWS EXPLORER

SO with the CD in the drive I selected the folder went to the GENERAL Tab and saw that the READ ONLY box was checked. I "unchecked it" but then got an Error Message stating that an Error had occurred and it wouldn't change the status.

In desperation I copied the CD Folder to the desktop and could then save the upfdated file.

HOW (If possible) can I re-format the CD so it will be R/W and I can put my folder back on in R?W status?




It is possible to format a blank CD-RW disc to use UDF packet writing. This will allow it to appear as a read/write disc. As far as I know, UDF packet writing is not built into Windows and requires third party software to format and write files to the disc. Windows XP may be able to only read files from CD-RW discs formatted and written by some UDF writing programs.

NOTE: UDF packet writing to CD-RW discs may not be 100% reliable and should never be used as the only method for storing irreplaceable files. Attempting to update, delete or add files at any time could cause any or all previous files to disappear without warning.

I have a Gateway Computer running Windows 98. MY problem concerns a Philips 3610 Read/Write - Write CD. It has always been a problem i.e. - balky. I am using Adaptec Easy CD Creator 3.5 software. I can burn a CD but it is only readable on the Philips. I can't get it to initialize on the other CD drive on the computer or on the drive in my wife's Compaq laptop. I had to transfer a 5MEG file to her computer and finally had to install an old Zip Drive to do it. Sometimes (sometimes not) I get an error message after the CD is burned, but it reads OK in the parent drive.

Any thoughts will be appreciated.

Also, went to Philips website to try to find new drivers - It's lousy!

A:Philips 3610 Read/Write - Write CD

I trust you have the updates from Adaptec/Roxio.

Try the Sony CD Extreme software: http://sony.storagesupport.com/dlag...m/dsonyweb/cdrw/SonyCDExtreme1.3.390Setup.exe It should work fine with your burner. If you just select “data” in the opening wizard it will record session at once, close the session so it can be read and leave the disc open so you can add more stuff. Very robust software – make sure you don’t use a formatted CD. If that still doesn’t work I suggest trying some different blank media.

If you are recording to a formatted CD then you are packet writing and it can’t be read on any other computer until you install the reader for it from http://www.roxio.com

My PC is running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and I have shared a few folders using advanced sharing. I have given 'Everyone' read permission to the folder. To test this I use my laptop which is running the same OS, press WinKey+R and enter \\<IP-address>. Windows then prompts me for username and password. The same happens if I try to connect directly to the directory by entering \\<IP-address>\<directory>. How can I access my files without having to log in with my account on the PC that is sharing files? All I wan't to do is to give ANYone on the network read permissions. They shouldn't have to authenticate.

A:Public read permission in SMB share

Thanks for your reply!

The reason that I can't use authentication is that I will be hosting a file server for a LAN gaming event, and it has to be really easy for the clients so they don't have to make adjustments. I think I should just stick with a local web server.

You said that those steps were necessary to make Windows 7 work with older servers, but the thing is, both the server and the client that I have been testing are running Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

I just installed a Sony DRU-810a DVD burner via the Master IDE channel (I have an HP DVD drive as a slave that works fine) and cannot seem to get it to recognize any disks whatsoever - even though it appears to be "working properly" in the Device Manager.

What is strange is if I open Ashampoo Burning Studio 7 and insert a blank DVD/CD it displays the correct type/size of said disk, but will not burn to it. Neither will it recognize any type of disk (DVD/software/music CD/Data CD) when simply inserted.

I've tried:
Updating the firmware - updating the drivers (although there really are none) - uninstalling the device(s) - changing the recording options (in properties) - changing the jumper settings - sfc scannow - changing the IDE ribbon - different brands of DVDs/CDs (all of them work on the HP, btw) - deleting the upper/lower filters - and connecting one optical drive at a time.

If I insert a disk, then try to open an Explorer folder, it just tells me to insert a disk.

I just pulled this Sony drive from another machine yesterday where it was performing flawlessly. That it can properly identify a blank DVD+R via BS7 (or Power ISO for that matter) has me thinking that there might be a fix that I'm overlooking.

Have I missed something?

Thanks again!

I upgraded an HP Pavillion Desktop from winME to XP Home. Everything was working fine. Few days ago, the "HP CD-Writer DVD Combo" simply stopped 'seeing' CD's. Oddly enough, it reads DVD's. I've inserted manufactured music CD's, blank cd's, cdrw's, and cd's with lots of different data--none of it is detected.

I'm wondering if perhaps this is being caused by p2p software (hijacking, etc?) or perhaps of another software installation (e.g. LitexMedia WMA Converter). Those are the only pertinent differences i can find between this computer and my other identical HP Pav computer which I also upgrated from ME to XP, and so far everything is fine.

I've tried updating the driver, but it says i've already got the latest version. From another posting i read, i thought it might be the laser, but they why would it be able to read DVDs?

I'm completely stuck. I have no clue what the problem could be. Ideas?

I have a problem. I started working for a company that requires me to boot to a Linux system from a DVD. After about a week, the DVD drive just stopped spinning/reading. The drive is still recognized by Windows, I've uninstalled and the system reinstalls it no problem. I've also deleted the upper and lower limits that have been posted on similar sites. I tried the Microsoft Fixit solution as well. The first time it happened, after deleting the upper/lower limits in the registry, the DVD drive started working again. Then after shutting down from the Linux system, the DVD drive would not read again. I did the Fixit Solution and it worked again. After shutting down from the Linux system the next time, the DVD drive stopped working again. Now nothing will seem to get it to work. Any suggestions?

I've contacted the company and they say there is no way the boot into Linux from the DVD is changing any settings in Windows because it completely bypasses the system but something has to be happening to cause the DVD to stop working. Help!!!

Hey guys.

I'm fairly new to the community and after my experience earlier this afternoon I thought this was the perfect place to ask for a solution to my problems. I have basic knowledge of computers but not so much about hardware. Yesterday I installed Windows 7 Ultimate and all worked fine. Earlier today I installed the SIMS 3 and during installation I had a problem about a Read/Write error. I thought it could just be my disc so I ignored it. Anyhow I installed SWAT 4 earlier today and I got this error:

I started to notice a connection between the two so I decided to install another game to make sure and I got the same error just in different text. As I thought it was my Windows maybe I virus I tried to reinstall Windows 7 and I got yet again the same error and when I tried to do it from start-up I just get the BOOT READ FAILURE message and I don't know what else to do.

Best Regards,

Hello all computer geeks out there who can solve this problem,

I've got a Sony 52X CD-RW drive. It used to work fine until recently, and I could read and burn CDs very well. But recently, I've noticed that I can read CDs but when I try to burn one, I get an error message that there is no writable disc in the drive. I've tried changing the CD and the manufacturer but it hasn't worked. In its drive properties I've checked that the driver is properly installed.
Sometimes I can burn CDs, but that is only if I use my Nero (version 6.
something), not the built-in Roxio one.
One thing. I used Nero InfoTool to collect information. It told me that 'System ASPI is not installed' and 'Nero ASPI is installed and working properly'.
Happy figuring!

The darn thing just doesn't read ANYTHING.

I put in a disc (blank cd, dvd movie, whatever, it doesn't matter) and the green light that is supposed to FLASH to indicate the process of reading the disc does not in fact flash--instead the green light goes on and does go off, for a very very very long time. Long enough for me to go outside and smoke a cigarette, at least.

--the device, according to device manager, is "working properly." Hah!

I have Adaptec Direct CD, can anyone tell me please the best speeds to read and write music CDs. Current read goes-2 - 4 - 8 -16 and 32 and the write write goes -1 - 2 - 4 and 8.
When I first open the settings box they show - Read 32x and Write 4x. If I change these, when I start the next time they are back to 32x and 4x. Is this an automatic setting that is recommended or should I change them to the 1x 4x or any other speed that is on the CD cases. I have a HP Pavilion running Windows 98se.

A:Read Write Speeds

Reading CD's is normally done at whatever speed the drive can read them, typically about 8-12 times the normal playing speed. Since the information is all digital, the speed isn't an issue.

Writing is subject to some discussion, though I have never found it to make much of a difference. I write my CD's at 16x, since that's what the media I happen to have is rated at, and they sound just as good as writing them at a slower speed. Some folks swear by slower writing speeds to reduce jitter, maybe I just have a tin ear.

A:VB Binary Read/Write

A simple way of doing this is as follows, all this essentially does is do a replace of characters with others so that it appears to scramble the content. There is no real encryption and it could be decoded if someone wanted to spend the time:

WriteFile "c:\development\test.txt", "Hello there how is this then?"
End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
MsgBox ReadFile("c:\development\test.txt")
End Sub

Private Sub WriteFile(ByVal FileName As String, ByVal Content As String)
Open FileName For Binary As #1
Put #1, , Encode(Content)
Close #1
End Sub

Private Function ReadFile(ByVal FileName As String) As String
Open FileName For Input As #1
ReadFile = Decode(Input(LOF(1), 1))

A:Diskmark read/write

The data (on the thumb drive) has to be read by the OS. The OS is writing what it read from the thumb drive to the hard drive.

I use a MacBook Pro 17" with Dual Boot (Boot Camp) XP Pro and OSX

I want to be able to use the same external drive for both systems. Maxstor 1 Terabyte Firewire 800 drive.

I note that FAT32 can be used up to 2 Terabyte, so I made 2 partitions, one 120Gb for pure Mac use in HFS+, and the balance of about 850Gb in FAT32 for either. I used a Linux LiveCD (Ubuntu 7) and Gnome Partition Editor to do the partitioning. Linux seems to see the partitions OK. However WXP sees the partition as "Unknown" and offers to format it in NTFS.

I know WXP can read/write FAT32 bigger than 32Gb, as I am using an external 2.5" 120Gb drive on WXP formatted as per above method, purely in FAT32, with no read or write problems.

To save me performing multiple re-partitioning and re-booting as trial and error, I wonder if anyone can inform me of the largest FAT32 partition that Windows XP Pro can read/write to before if throws a fit.

I have a HP Pavillion dv1000 and I'm trying to burn a CD. When I insert a CD it will read it perfectly fine but when I try to burn one it will go through the whole process of burning but then it will pop out a blank CD. Can somebody help me please

A:Burner will read but not write

Sounds like the drive may be gone.

Is this a new problem? When you right-click the drive, Properties, does it have a Recording tab?

I had 2 x 256mb ram cards plus 2 x 64mb cards installed and under "My Computer" properties it only said I had 496Mb of ram. I replace the 64mb cards with 2 new 256bm cards in slots 1 and 2 and moved the ollder 256mb cards to slots 3 and 4. The properties still only show that I have 496 mb of ram. Is this a hardware problem or a software problem and what do I do next. When starting the computere up, I get a message that says there is a read/write error at a certain location but then it continues to boot up. It is running slower now but still running. Dell dimention 8100 running XP. Thanks

I have an Emachine with an NEC 2500A DVD+-RW (at least Nero 6 said it was an NEC2500A) drive running windows XP. Up until recently I could read and write DVD-R disks. Something has happened, DVD-r's are not recognized by the drive anymore. I did have Video Studio 7 SE on the computer for a while as well as Nero 6. They both worked for a while before the DVD recorder had problems. I've removed both and uninstalled and re-installed the recorder. Still does not work. Only other thing I think I did was an automated Windows Update. Does anyone have any ideas?

A:Can't read or write DVD-r, dvd+rw's and cdr's work!

try system restore: set to a date when your dvd-r's worked.

Hey guys

Recently, I purchased a new computer as my old computer had a problem which didn't resolve even after changing most hardware (hard drives, disk drives, cables) so I decided to purchase a new one.

Anyhow, on my old computer I burnt a game onto a disk and now when I placed the disk into my new computer it ended up screwing it up just like the previous computer. Anyhow, I opened it up and found an unplugged hard-drive floating on the bottom of the case which I decided to plug in and now I successfully have Windows XP installed. Anyhow, I'm running a scan to hopefully repair any problems on my main hard-drive after formatting it fully to remove any stored files left by the last "quick" format.

Basically, before the results come in from the scan I was wondering if there could be a problem on the disk which could've caused this problem? It took me a while to reinstall Windows as I ended up getting the same problem in different words of course and before that everything I tried (programs, games) also give me the error about a corrupt file during the transfer and so on.

Hi, guys
this is a question, related to CD-RW in general.
I constantly have problems with read/write access to CD-RW's.
I formatted CD in one PC , cannot write on another PC and visa versa. Many times because of CD-RW problem, the entire PC freezes. What about reliability?
Did anybody solve these problems? I tried Win 98, Win XP, different PC (mostly Dell's), different CD manufactures etc.

i have a serious problem with my WD Caviar EIDE 80gb hard drive. it is hooked up on primary slave. I have about 40gb of files on it that i need. now the problem is that when i try to write or read files to/from it, it will go unreconized by my computer and i get a yellow triangle in the box saying something about a write failure. now, when i read mp3 or videos from it, it will only go for about 1 min and then everything will freeze. i suspect that the drive is overheating, could this be the cause? or what else could this be?

A:CD/DVD Drive can read but not write

Hi, Welcome to forums.

Check out for any available updates for DVD drivers. Install them. If that resolves the issue, fine. Else, you can get a new drive. It might be corrupted.
