Can't modify tag(s)! File is read only! - How do I edit file info when it says this?

I'm trying to clean up all my files by giving them all the correct file info. But, when I try to edit a few of the files, I get "Can't modify tag(s)! File is read only!" Why does this happen to some files, and how can I fix it so I can edit the file info? Thanks.

The file is protected using the file system or you don't have rights to modify the file.

use windows explorer to find the file --> (right click then properties) --> under attributes UNCHECK read only.

you can't modify or add tags to files which are on CD's (or any other unwritable media)
