I don't know what you mean "marked green." Blue is the normal color for directories. When you copy files from CDs, they normally do not have the write bits set because a CD is read only. But you should be able to change this with chmod
Perhaps you could post the long (using -l) directory listing of one of the problematic files as well as the directory it is in? (To list just the directory instead of its contents, add the -d option.)
Also try the commands:
Use the first form for files and the second form for directories.
EDIT: Oops. I just noticed you said MP3 player instead of CD! But still do report back the result of the long directory listing and lsattr.
