MP3 modifying question

Anyway to modify or rename a track name that's upload to your hard drive from a CD?
I got some MP3s I just uploaded into my hard drive and it won't let me rename it using the Alt & 3 buttons. Any way around this? It says "file for read only". I'm using WinAmp by the way.

Ahh, one of the nastiest problems I keep having. The read-only status of files copied from CD.

You need to right-click on the file on your hard drive (or groups of files, or directories) that you copied from CD, click Properties, and clear the read-only attribute box first.
