If the file resides on read-only media such as a CD, DVD or Blu-ray, you must select a different drive to save the file.
Some removable drives and media may also have a physical write-protection tab. For example, diskettes have a square hole that when covered, makes the diskette read-only. Some USB flash drives also have a switch to make them read-only.
