Permission denied to administrator
EDIT: It's not actually solved, but has now become a Win Media Centre issue. I will post there.
I have tried to delete several folders containing recorded DVDs. Most of them went, but there are a half dozen that can not be deleted.
The structure is:
These were in WMC Movies Library, by using their parent folder f:\dvds. However I have now removed that from the library. All the successfully deleted folders were in the same parent folder.
I am told I need permission to delete them. I actually am logged in as admin. I checked in Properties/security n their parent folder and I have all permissions except Special, which is greyed out for all listed users.
However when I try to look at security for any of the individual DVD folders, I am told I do not have permission to even _see_ the security settings
I then saw that the folders were read-only. I attempted to uncheck that, but again was told I needed admin privileges.
Given that I am admin, what's going on here?
EDT: I am also the owner of the parent folder, but cannot see or alter the owner of the sub-folders.
Any help most appreciated.

Thanks for the reply. I have tried to delete the f:\dvds folder and it gives the same error, although other subfolder were fine.
I will check the tute, but as I said (your fast reply may have missed the edit, sorry) it's become a WMC issue, as it's hogging the subfolder, although I have removed the parent folder f:\dvds.
I tried Take Ownership and the new context menu item appeared, but I still get the same errors. Definitely a WMC issue. I have posted there.
