    i copied a portion of my sys32 folder to my cdrw drive because i'm stupid. and i wanted to see if i could use it to alter my sys32 on my other machine. don't ask.

    yeah, i soon realized the folder's write protected and i can't burn the foler, or delete the copy. now i can't burn anything unless i use a different profile.

    i tried properties > uncheck read only. i'm guessing the answer lies somewhere in folder options.

    help is appreciated, as always.
