    Can't save files to my HD?
    Whenever I try and save a word file to my hard drive from Word, it says the drive is read only... How can I change it so I can save my files? I always have to save it to my desktop and then drag it to my HD. It seems to only do this in word.

    What HD are you trying to save to? Is it an internal or external?
