Hi!
I ripped a cd to my HD which worked Ok and mp3 file was playable( not rights protected).
Subsequently I drag-and-dropped the file into 'My Music' folder and found it was blocked.
Error is 'Access Denied'. I cannot open or play. I get the same error if I try to delete or move.
I've logged on as admin and tried to delete file but to no avail.
Also logged on in 'safe' mode and tried to delete..also no success. I ran disc check prog and no error was found.Also if I go to 'properties' of the file it shows as empty(no mp3 file in there).
' Move on boot' software does not help.

(Note: this problem is on my home computer. I ripped the same CD and drag and dropped into My Music on my notebook and have no error or problem whatsoever.

I just want to clean up my music and delete this file..canyou help?
Thanks in advance.

So you're saying that can't move the music file?

What part of your hard drive did you rip the music to?

And have you used this utility: http://www.majorgeek...ckMe_d4429.html

to see if anything is preventing it to be moved?

log in as administrator > then navigate to the file > right click the file > properties > security tab > advanced > owner > then there should be a "change owner to" window with a list of users...if all that's there is administrator..pick administrator...otherwise pick your user...click apply...then ok untill you're back out of those menus

did you log in as an administrator? if not...you probably won't have the optioni to take ownership (to log into the true administrator account....go into safe mode..and when it asks you to pick your user...press ctrl alt del...this will bring up a login screen..type in administrator....then the password)
