Sounds like a permission problem. Are you writing to external drive? What OS?
All files are on an external drive. Using Windows 8. Sounds reasonable, I'm thinking I'm missing some kind of setting. PS has no problem changing the same metadata on the same files, but I use Bridge to change 300+ files at a time then PS to fine tune during processing.
OS permission problems are not uncommon with external drives. Although it may sound crazy you may not be an authorized user of the drive. A workaround is to right click on Bridge icon and choose "run as admininstrator".
For long term fix check ouit this old thread. http://forums.adobe.com/thread/957401?tstart=0
I knew it was something simple, just had no clue what it was. Seems to work fine now
