    Default Can't copy file properties in windows 8

    hello everyone,

    Thank you for taking the time to look at this and help me it is greatly appreciated. I am planning to copy my music files and photos from my windows 8 laptop onto an external hard drive in order to transfer to my new Mac. The majority of these files copied no problem except for 50 or so come up with the error message 'do you want to copy this file without it's properties.' I have looked in the properties and it's marked 'read-only.' I have tried to change this and there still with no change.

    Does anyone know what could be causing this?

    Boot from the CD (you need to make sure your BIOS setting prioritises your CD/DVD drive before your hard drive); respond to the boot message sthg like "Press any key to boot from your CD", wait for it to load up a basic OS.
    (See e.g. How to boot from a CD for a fuller example)
