    MP3's locked when transferred to Mac????
    I create mp3's and transfer them to a Mac using LogMeIn. Everyone that is transferred is locked until I Get Info/(log in)/change "No Access" to "Read/Write". Why does the Mac do this and is there a way to change a default setting to stop it. It is very annoying to have to change every single mp3 by logging in and changing the settings on each mp3. THANKS!

    Have you successfully done this on another Apple Macintosh computer where this didn't happen?

    If you've never transferred an mp3 where the mp3 file wasn't locked on a Mac...then maybe this is just the way it works.

    I would assume it is the way logmein “transfers” the file. Because it is coming over a “network”, but not in the traditional sense of a “network”.
