In the Get Info window, who is listed as Owner & Group? In rhat Window, is the Locked box checked?
Might try BatchMod, it's much better/easier than the Finder for recursive Permission changes, but careful, it's powerful...
Once open drag those files to it's icon, or better yet the folder holding all these files, set rights, check the apply to enclosed items box.
