Description of problem:
When I "drag and drop" files from a standard dvd player (currently a
photo cd with about 100 photos) to my desktop for temporary transfer,
the copy works then I get the following message
Error while moving
/mnt/cdrom...x.jpg cannot be moved because it is a read-only disk
Skip Cancel Retry
None of these options is preferable, as there are a >100 files on the
cd, and I have to click skip or cancel for each one, which is a bit
frustrating, and something a normal desktop user wouldn't stand for.
Perhaps if the directory being moved is not writable it should default
to a copy, not a move?

2. Drag and drop to desktop
3. Be frustrated hiting the mouse button or enter
Actual Results: see above
Expected Results: I believe it should have "realized" that the
directory being copied was not writable, and defaulted to copying not
There should also be a skip all function in the dialog referenced.
Laptop, no nfs or autofs used.
