    I seem to have lost access to my Movies folder. I can still view the files in there and open them, but I can't save into the folder and I can't rename files. Also, when I try to move a file out of there, I have to type in my password in the little prompt you get when installing applications.

    Any suggestions?

    Highlight the folder, press Apple+I to bring up the info window, change Ownership and Permissions

    Its greyed-out, so I can't...

    I've also tried repairing disk permissions using Disk Utility, to no avail.

    Click on the little padlock next to Owner, that'll unlock the settings.
