Under OS X Snow Leopard is there a way to batch change a group of files from 'Read Only' to 'Read & Write' access?

I regularly have DVDs with folders and files that are 'Read Only' and have to individually change the enclosed files and folders before myDVDEdit will allow me to 'Save' my changes. It's very time-consuming and I can't seem to find a command that will change all the selected files to 'Read & Write' access.

I saw a posting by another user with the same question but there was no answer.

Thanks.

Select your DVD project folder
press cmd I to get information about your folder.
On the bottom of the information window, you will find this:


clic on the padlock


Enter your password

change the user privilege to Read & Write



clic on the command combo box (with a gears) and select "Apply to enclosed items..."



Clic on OK to confirm

Jérôme,

thank you very much for your rapid reply and for taking the trouble to illustrate the method. I really appreciate it. Now I can finally get aspect ratio issues sorted out with myDVDEdit.

I searched and googled and could not find out how. I'm sure it happens a lot with myDVDEdit users, so maybe it's worth a 'sticky'.

Regards.
