    How do you change the attributes on a downloaded video file? It's a "read only" file from a DVD-R. I want to edit the video and can't.

    Once transfered to your hard drive, have you tried right clicking the file, properties, then uncheck the 'read only' box? You can't edit it directly from the DVD-R.

    Right Click on the File and then Click "Properties". At the Bottom of the Properties Window on the "Attributes:" line, un check Read Only. Then Click Apply and OK. That should do it.
