This is probably something which is easily rectified but I can't seem to find the answer in your index or elsewhere.
I need to boot an old laptop using floppy discs (yes, that old) as the laptop's CD drive is ignoring CDs. I know the floppy disk drive is working, and I want to use the Rawrite files available on your magazine's DVDs.
I'm using a desk top with an added FD drive and know that this machine's FD drive is working, being able to read an Abiword file from it. This machine is running Ubuntu 12.10.
On trying to drag the Rawrite files from the CD to the FD drive the message 'Error while copying - permission denied' pops up. I have changed the permissions by Rclicking on 'Properties' then opening 'Permissions', but the same message still pops up. What is it that I don't understand, please?
