    I transfer my photos to our PC from time to time, using a DOS (Windows) program that works otherwise OK. And I'm unsure that the program, HP Photosmart Essential 3.5) has anything to do with this:

    After transfer, which is set up to delete the photos on my phone after transfer, I get a message that none of them could be deleted as they are all write-protected.

    Is this working as it's supposed to? Is there something I can do about it?

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the reply. Our PC is running Windows XP. iTunes will not support it. I will look at your suggestion for transfer. Is it an app?

    Searched for the app, but apparently it's software?

    In any case, my issue is that all my photos on my iPhone 6+ are marked as read-only, so my phone is getting really crowded with photos.
