If you had asked me, I would have showed you how close you were in the real dialogs. It was only one page away and less complex than you think. Too late now.

and my own guesses from reading everything that i HOPE i finally have things straightened out, and now have access to everything. i'd love to find a reg hack for this too however.
And again, that tool only does what is VERY easy to do from the dialog boxes. If you had asked, it would have been a reply of about three lines extra.

There is no "registry hack" for this. Once it is set correct, it will stay correct.

It is called FAT32 as using in Windows98. But it is hopeless when you have a disk problem as no where near as resilient as NTFS.

i can only hope future rips won't get screwy, meaning they inherit what seems to work now.
If you actually had some belief in what I have told you, and actually tried it yourself, you would see that future rips are not "getting screwy" anymore.

This is all traced back to the original folder that was created. That had been dragged from an odd location and had odd security settings. Now you have corrected them, they will STAY corrected. Security rights (and ownership) is all about what the PARENT folder's settings are. Once they are correct, the rest is automatic.

Googling for random tools will only confuse the situation.

Seriously - you are getting angry at the wrong thing. Do not get angry at your computer because you do not understand it. Computers are complex, but also easy to control with knowledge. Do you throw spanners at the car when it doesn't work?
