Strange - this sounds as though those files are owned by somebody
else. Are you the only user on this computer & are these files created
by you? Make sure you want to be sharing something if you don't have
access to it!

Either way, the simply way around this is to change the file
permissions as super-user.  If you're wanting to do this in the GUI /
Nautilus hit Alt-F2 and then type:

gksudo nautilus

Browse to the folders with the window that appears & then change the
permissions that way.  It's worth saying - if these files should be
yours, you may want to change the "user" listed here to your own
username.  That way you'll be able to edit/change them in future.
