give us some time to get to your post, don't expect ppl will jump on your thread right after you posted. Now we need to know a couple of things, how do you copy contents of CD to HD (GUI/command prompt). If you say you were able successfully copy the contents of CD to HDD it means you mounted the CD firrst - so we elimminate this step. Now, tell us more about the permissions on the files you copied. If you are familiar with command mode you know what to do, if all you care is GUI, you can select detailed view in the filemanager of your choice to display permissions info as well as all other including modification time, size, etc. In the case you have no idea what I am talking about, look for the srtring next to the file name that looks like
rwxr-x--x or anything close to it, and notice the owner and group of the files. then post it here.
