Suddenly I cannot rename or even delete RAW files downloaded from the camera card. I have checked and have the latest versions of Bridge and Photoshop CS6. I am running Windows 7 in 64 bit. I have no problem opening the files through ACR. If I look in Windows>Computer and alter the files names manually even by a adding one letter, I can then do all the normal things in Bridge - Batch Rename, Delete etc. This is a real pain as I can shoot several hundred images in a day and I don't want to change each one manually in Windows. Can someone help please?
I have an update on the problem. Everything is fine when I load files from my Nikon. The problem occurs with files from the Panasonic Lumix GF1. The last time I downloaded files from the Lumix was 13th October 2012. It was fine then.

I always use a card reader. The Lumix uses SDHC cards and I have tried two cards with the same result. My Nikon uses CF cards and I have downloaded successfully through a different slot in the same card reader. I don’t have a second card reader for SDHC cards. However, I have now discovered another twist to the situation.
I download a file but cannot delete or rename in the same folder. I can rename to a different folder but still cannot delete or rename in the same folder. I go into Windows>Computer and rename by adding another letter to the file name. Now I have full control of the file in Bridge. HOWEVER, if I rename back to the original name in Bridge I am back to the beginning again. I cannot delete or rename in the same folder. It seems like it is the name that locks it. This is not just the original file name from the camera, it also applies to the new name when Bridge has renamed it to another folder.
