Read-only problem

I have and Excel spreadsheet on my hard drive that I have frequently backed up by saving to a CD. After multiple saves, it suddenly will no longer save, giving me a message that it is a read-only file. I didn't do anything different and it's the same CD and file name. I checked properties and the file is not checked as "read-only". I tried saving it under another name but it saved it and the previously mentioned file as "ready to burn to disk", yet it won't burn to the disk or to a new one.

Any suggestions?

    Have you ever cleaned the optical lens on the drive ?
