    Try doing it from terminal:

    chown -R "username":staff
    chmod -R 755 path/to/Video_TS

    Obviously username would be your username and for /path/to/Video_TS you can literally just type in "chmod -R 755 " and then drag/drop the Video_TS folder into the Terminal window.

    Also, just to be sure, these are ripped Video_TS folders right?

    And they are on a writeable media? Not on an NTFS drive or a DVD?
