I'm being completely useless here - I have recorded a DVD on a Samsung recorder. When I stick the disc into the MBP it appears on the desktop as a locked folder, with a little red 'no-entry' sign. I know it has the video_ts files inside - I can't change the permissions by rt-clicking...Get info... even after I put in the admin password, so I'm assuming I would have to do it in Terminal. But, I'm having real problems with the syntax and all the arguements. The path to the folder is Macintosh HD, Users, srp, Desktop, DVD Recorder and I need to change the permissions so anyone can have read and write access to the folder and all the sub-folders and files that are inside. Can some kind person please let me know what the correct syntax is to perform this so I can get to the video_ts files?
