    I'm trying to copy a bunch of files. I copied them from a disc onto the hdd of a macbook pro (10.6.6). The disc was damaged, so this may just be full on corrupted files. But. I'm trying to copy the files that did make it from the laptop to a shared drive on an XP machine. As soon as I drag and drop it asks me for the laptop system password "to allow Finder to make changes." Then, I get another dialogue that says:
    "One or more items can't be copied... because you don't have permission to read them."

    Seems obvious, right? The problem is that all of the files have read/write permissions for every group listed (Me, staff and everyone).

    Is this just corrupted files or can I actually do what I'm trying to do somehow?
