I have searched the archives and while there were several threads on the issue, I have not found a solution to my specific problem. I am new to digital photography (just borrow a friends canon 5d). I transfered the raw and jpg files directly from the card (I have a slot for the card on my laptop). I have tried several time to delete the .cr2 files that I don't want to save but I get 2 error messages: When I use Adobe Bridge the error message is that the "Access is denied". When I try to delete the files directly from the "My Pictures" folder the error message is "Cannot delete: File is being used by another person". Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
