A little more detail would be helpful, what device are you using? Are you using flash drive, camera, mp3 player, etc. There is some kind of "Hold" switch you need to turn off.

Can you save it to the hard drive? If you can do a "save as", and change the name of the file, then you'll have full rights to the file.

arer there any files on the card? you can't save the memory card but you CAN save the info. I've been assuming ( and you know where that gets us) that you're trying to set the data off the disk. If you save the data to your hard drive then you should be able to change permissions by doing the save as (see above) and changing the name of the file. If you're trying to access the disc itself, that's a different problem altogether.
I suppose this means we need "more information please".
