"The media is write protected" error

Posted: 03-21-2009, 09:32 PM
Hi everybody.
Excuse me for openning up an old issue. I could not find a good answer on
the internet.

Recently I changed my hard disk, WITHOUT changing the fax store folder; it
is "d:\users\documents\fax" as it was before. Since then, when I try to send
a fax, I get this error: "The media is write protected".

Anyone knows what is wrong?

how did you get the fax store from the old disk, to the new one? if you used
a CD or DVD depending on how you did it, you may have copied accross Read
only. now in XP all you need to do is look at the properties of the folder
and change them, not sure if its more complicated on vista as i have avoided
that experaince so far.
